On the basis of personal experience and inspirations related to different outdoor spaces participants will develop solo and group actions, which will be incorporated into a final performance during the Unity MFT Festival in Sochaczew.

The group will look for ways of democratic approaches during the artistic process. Individual improvisations created by the participants will be developed throughout the labs to create a theatrical structure.
At the end of the laboratories participants will present the work - performance, which will be part of the program of the Unity MFT Festival in Sochaczew.
