Based on Paul Röttger’s practice, specifically his recent endeavors in stage productions with people who suffer from mental illnesses, Zaides will conduct a five day workshop with participants of all mental spectrum. The workshop is part of a unique institution training artists, actors and students to share their artistic approach and incorporate the other in their practice.  In Röttger’s own words: “By giving a different insight into the other, we are working towards a world where we understand each other better. A world in which art and healthcare are mutually reinforcing.”

The workshop is part of Zaides ongoing exploration and preparation for a new work addressing the notion of welcomeness towards the other.
