Cheers for Fears Transit - 2018 platform for artistic research and professionalisation The production platform Transit allows advanced art students to enter into a transdisciplinary exchange about their artistic projects. Mentoring, regular colloquia and rehearsal phases with production companies in the Ruhr region promote six project initiatives on the border between studies and professionalism: a motion study about dizziness and deception in the physical and philosophical sense; a film addressing the construction of identity in hypernormative societies; a theatrical work that draws on individual experiences to deal with self-perception and perception of others, prejudices and racism; a live video project simulating doomsday scenarios; an object theatre production discussing identity and projections under the paradigm of migration; as well as an intervention in urban space addressing protest in the form of barricades.
