“The writer must be four people: 

  1. The nut, the obsédé 
  2. The moron
  3. The stylist
  4. The critic 

1 Supplies the material; 2 let it come out; 3 is taste; 4 is intelligence. 

A great writer has all - but you can still be a good writer with only 1 and 2; they’re most important”. From Susan Sontag Journal. 

Pasolini Mamma Roma 1962

The workshop will deal with storytelling, visual and literal sensations. The emotional impact of camera movements on the viewer, the meaning of unreadable body language in European cinema and everyday life, and the sensation of failure in live performances are all topics that will be explored.

  • Where will the form stop and the content begin?
  • How to construct content from form?
  • How to keep the audience attention?

 - The participants need to bring one documentation of a work they saw or a specific moment that registered in their memory from any kind of art form. 

 - The participants need to bring a raw material that is created by theselves but hasn’t been manipulated yet. Something that can be used later and manipulated into a greater work. Music, footage, a series of movements, object etc.

Workshopleader: Keren Cytter

Keren Cytter (b. 1977 in Tel Aviv, lives in New York) is a prolific storyteller. She works mainly with video and film and has made more than 65 scripts and films within the last decade. In 2008 she founded the dance and theatre company D.I.E. NOW (Dance International Europe Now) and in 2010 she co-founded APE – Art Projects Era, a foundation working from New York and Rotterdam with the aim to realise art projects outside of traditional institutional structures. 

Keren Cytter uses numerous cinematic references in her film works as she ignores, violates and reveals the unwritten rules of filmmaking. Simple editing tricks, visual effects and fast and cheap production are central elements in Cytter’s toolbox, and she is not afraid of quoting, mixing and making styles and genres clash: Home-movie horror meets soap opera and kitsch, lo-fi Hollywood glamour is mashed up with French film noir and the mockumentary genre. The actors often have multiple roles and speak several languages within the same film; sometimes women are acting as men and vice versa. Besides the visual material Cytter also draws heavily on music to create a certain drama and atmosphere within her films. The narratives are often broken up and touch on themes of love, hate, sex, jealousy, revenge and violence.
