The CKV project week No Fashion Sho 2020 took place from 7 to 11 September 2020. A project week in which the third-year students of the four teacher training courses: Dance in Education (Academy of Theatre and Dance), Theatre in Education (Academy of Theatre and Dance), Music Teacher (Conservatorium van Amsterdam) and Visual arts and design teacher (Breitner Academy) together made a theatrical fashion performance.
Instead of a study trip to Belgrade, this year the students focused on various districts of Amsterdam. The assignment the students were given was: Imagine your vision of the identity of an Amsterdam neighborhood in the form of a theatrical fashion performance. Base yourself on research in the neighborhood: its history, architecture and the way in which residents shape their lives and themselves.
During the week, the students became acquainted with Amsterdam artists and institutions, followed master workshops (sound design, voguing, spoken word and visual art) at various locations of the art academies and examined the Amsterdam neighborhoods. At the end of the project week, the students showed their thesis: each Amsterdam neighborhood (Amsterdam North, Amsterdam New West, Amsterdam East, Amsterdam West and Amsterdam Southeast) was depicted in a theatrical fashion performance.
