STUK invited 20 participants from many different generations and backgrounds to join Daniel Linehan, Michael Helland and Anneleen Keppens of the dance company Hiatus for one week for an interactive workshop on the themes of ‚time‘ and ‚work‘.

In Vita Activa a group worked together for a week, playing with concepts of work and time. The workshop was an artistic project that turned the dance studio into a free space for people, with or without artistic background, who have never worked together before.

The participants investigated the role of work in society. They were given tools to look at their skills and knowledge in a new way and to search for possibilities to share them. The process was a creative game full of interactions. A different experience of valuing work arose, blurring the borders between types of work. The aim was to grow into a temporary community with an alternative economy.
