haus of dada manifesto
All children are born artists, until the world knocks it out of them. Honour that artist in everyone.
Find talent and stick to it like glue (borrowed from Christine Vachon, Killer Films)
Everyone is President at haus of dada
We are all made of the same hologram, refections of each other
Slow and gentle is the way. No one is in ever in trouble. It’s ok to move quickly, but if you’re feeling under pressure try slowing down.
There are no stupid questions
Gather often and hold space for heart connection. Honour vulnerability and connect over gratitude
We love radical juxtapositions and bringing voices together in a way that disrupts easy logic and established history
Principles over product:
If our works have financial value we consider it a bonus,
but not the end goal.
We aim for collaboration and a spirit of generosity and abundance surrounding artistic vision and creation
Revolution must be intersectional, we lift up marginalized voices and use storytelling to ignite movement toward liberation
In art there it is impossible to be wrong.
Speak the truth (to yourself)
all the while
freely and ambitiously
creating your own Fictitious History.
In performance it is impossible to be wrong:
If you set out to create a ballet and the dancer falls off the stage,
at haus of dada, that transforms into a masterful work
investigating the lost art of falling.
We will always be amateurs, in the true sense of the word. Art is our nutrition
We are focussed on
the vital integration of disability culture
into the world
through the doorway of public art.
