For over 20 years, von Stockert and her company have inspired people of all ages and abilities to explore their own creative voices. Whether through tailor-made workshop programmes, performance participation or engagement in research and development, von Stockert has always had a keen interest in bringing people from diverse backgrounds, irrespective of previous arts or dance experience, into her creative process. Her thought-provoking yet playful interrogation of what makes us human and of social, political and environmental themes, offers many points of access and encourages broad participation. The key areas listed underneath often overlap, as many of the company’s projects bring together community participants and professionals, young and old, arts enthusiasts and those new to the arts. Following are links to examples, testimonials and information on some of the company’s past participation projects as well as details on current participation opportunities.

Intergenerational groups & people over 60

People with (dis)ability

Children & young people 

Current Participation Opportunities: We are planning a community engagement programme and a sector development offer in conjunction with von Stockert’s new work Lost & Found. Details about place and dates of the workshops and how to get involved will be announced on this site in autumn 2021. You can also join our mailing list to receive email updates on participation opportunities or contact us.
