Dadaism is a great inspiration for WARTAAL; Dada artists radically returned to their childish creativity and let chance play a major role in the creation of their work.
In poetry, the Dadaists wrote absurd poems full of incoherent nonsense, sometimes consisting only of pure sounds. Collage and assembly were commonly used techniques. In addition, Dada artists often created temporary art such as performances. It was originally a very politically committed pacifist movement of left-thinking artists who opposed society.
This resistance, or at least making your voice heard, whether or not in the form of protest, has a place in the studio.

WARTAAL is a project of TENT and Theater Rotterdam. Writer, adventurer and program maker Raoul de Jong is the face of WARTAAL and the creator of all assignments. He welcomes you to the studio during an introductory film inspired by the series “Anyone can Dance” that he previously made for Vila Achterwerk (VPRO). The layout of the space was designed in collaboration with Studio Spass. Studio Spass is a versatile Rotterdam design agency founded by Jaron Korvinus and Daan Mens in 2008. Their designs are always rigorous and well thought-out, combined with playful cheerfulness. They have a preference for typography and, besides design, have ample experience in giving workshops and interaction with the public. The studio is offered during the summer within the context of the Jeugd vakantie paspoort. In this booklet, which every Rotterdam primary school student receives, 150 activities are offered throughout Rotterdam and the surrounding area. Admission is free for kids and supervisors.

WARTAAL is suitable for children between 4 and 12 years of age (and anyone who still feels like a child afterwards). Admission free for all children. Two adults can enter for free on presentation of the Jeugd vakantie paspoort
