As a project of The Art of Transformation for the development of social change, workshops will be arranged. These workshops are an interdisciplinary cooperation between artists, organisations, institutions, theatres, culture houses and schools. The purpose is to use artistic expression to create new methods for processing and articulating traumatic experiences and stories.
The multi-media performance “The Girl Under the Water” (Danish version) with the original title “Girl of Diamond Mountain” (English version) is the foundation of The Art of Transformation and invites dialogue concerning taboos and the processing of traumas both on a personal level and from a greater perspective entire societies. Along with the GODM performance a program is being developed focussing on dialogue for specific target groups, contexts, workshops and educational purposes. GODM co-creator and TAoT co-founder Lotte Arnsbjerg has worked as a teacher, coach and mentor in many different social and educational contexts.
