PoolPlay – artistic research on SPACE and TIME

an interdisciplinary summer academy by ar2com

Since 2011 once a year the former empty now imaginary swimming pool of the Hotel Sole Paradiso invites musicians, architects, dancers and artists/creatives to do artistic research on SPACE and TIME, since those are choreographed, composed or designed. After an intensive, playful process the PoolPlayers, the participants of the workshop, will present the research result: the PoolFillment.
