All The Rivers

All the Rivers is a series of involved artistic exchange, in form of workshops and Flash-residencies.

Open to any medium and discipline within arts, stage tech, and the community around them, All the Rivers is focused on the transformative power of exchange and cooperation/collaboration within and between arts, artists, community, society and their peripheries. We see a sharing of skills, knowledge, insight and creative process as a mutual spiral of growth, and are looking for an active, aware practice of exchange, involvement and commitment, in an informed and inclusive mindset and effort.

Creativity is formed in constant dialogue of learning and teaching, of voicing and listening. in both workshops and residencies, artists and workshop leaders invite the participants for either or both.

The series offers workshops on a wide range of topics, from inclusive, aware and accessible production and creation, technical skills, inspiring practices and involved creation. 

As part of All The Rivers there are 5 Flash Residencies, short, production-orientated residencies followed by a public showing. They aim to offer public participation - in any form and medium, from performing arts to visual arts, sound or installations, aiming to reach out and enter into dialogue with the audience and community as part of the artistic process and its performance.

The jury members Nuray Demir, Katharina Ludwig and Ece Tufan selected 5 groups of artists from 78 submitted proposals. We are happy to announce

All The Rivers Workshop: Light and Materiality

Saturday, 22 June, 2024 - 15:00

All The Rivers Workshop: Light and Materiality

Claire Terrien
Catalina Fernández


Light and Materiality Workshop - Catalina Fernandez and Claire Terrien

In our sessions, we'll be discussing light as a technology and as an aesthetic tool in the performing arts. Together, we'll explore professional lighting design tools and learn how to build DIY lamps/light objects.

We'll invite participants to share a performative practice and explore different light atmospheres to transform the space. While we examine light's language in relation to each practice, we will:

- Investigate light's interactions with various materials and play with colors and effects (Lee filters/LED lamps/Carousel projectors/hazers/fog salts),
- Delve into light copying natural phenomena and sci-fi worlds (shadows/clouds/rain/foggy weather/sunsets/etc.),
- Study light with images & projection and its reflection in smoke and mirrors.

We'll also dedicate time to learning how to communicate lighting ideas effectively. We want to share our communication strategies, relevant vocabulary, and how to create reference images and texts. 

Our goal is to explore ways to articulate lighting ideas clearly and how to transform them into tangible designs.
