CARAPACE foundation initiates and realizes (inter-)national (performing) art projects.
We want to cooperate, to exchange and to promote dialogue between people of different (inter) national backgrounds and
professional disciplines through performances, workshops and publications.
CARAPACE foundation wants to be in the world with an open and curious attitude while maintaining defensibilty and authenticity.
We approach differences as enriching rather than threatening. New fields can thus be discovered.
_carapace [karapas], (la ~ (v)) scale (~), armor (the ~).
When do you protect yourself with your armor?
In what situation do you feel safe enough to show yourself unprotected?
Or can the shield breathe??
CARAPACE foundation is about the search of the unknown.
Artistically, culturally, personally and interpersonally. The fear of the
unknown can only be negated by curiosity. However, the encounter
with the unknown can cause confusion, alienation and even detachment.
It takes courage to overcome the familiar frameworks. It requires
perseverance to keep discerning clearly what the essence is. And in
connection to the core, new links, forms and visions can arise.
