Mission and Objectives: 

CCAP's foremost objective is to manifets, promote, investigate and problematize choreography as a relevant practice of social belonging - across languages and geographical borders. Main focus is directed on excluded demographics specifically including disabled citizens. This is pursued by art productions produced and performed by extended collaborations.

All work is targeting a specific issue pursued by research and long-term practice. The aim is to achieve and sustain the kind of visibility, clarity, stringency, and accessability required for a dynamic of response. That includes media-specificity as well as trans-mediality - which, in turn, implicates a challenge to normative exchange formats and economies. The objective is to facilitate expanded exchange and at the same time support specificity of expression. Moreover to problematize conventional perception of body, movement and language, finally to raise specific attention and engaged participation in the dwelling into alternative bodies, movements, and languages.

Main projects/activities in 2015 have been:

4 new productions for the stage: SAD, Sadness extended, Here here and HERE
