    Dear Isadora Community,

    We're excited to announce that the Isadora Werkstatt 2019 will take place from Wednesday the 14th of August to Saturday the 17th of August at Uferstudios (Uferstraße 23, 13357 Berlin, Germany).

    Ticket sales will start at the beginning of June. The Werkstatt program containing the details on all the workshops will also be made available at that time.

    TroikaTronix will be providing free, one-month Isadora licenses to any Werkstatt attendees who do not already own an Isadora license.

    The TroikaTronix Staff and some very talented guest teachers will be giving lectures and teaching workshops intended for a variety of skill levels covering a number of topics, including:

    • Isadora 101
    • Isadora techniques for theatre technicians (Beginner and Advanced)
    • IzzyMap (crash-course and in-depth)
    • DMX and Artnet
    • Working with 360-degree video
    • MIDI Show Control Cueing
    • Arduino
    • Using Isadora for Animation
    • and more!

    There will be lots of opportunities to show and develop your own work alongside the TroikaTronix Staff and other Werkstatt attendees in our Creative Space, which will be open throughout the Werkstatt.

    We look forward to seeing both new and familiar faces at the Werkstatt this year.

    Best wishes,

    The TroikaTronix Staff

    Love the MIDI Show Control Cueing / DMX & Artnet workshops :)


  • Wow. As a relative newcomer to Isadora, it would be so exciting to attend this workshop. Do you have a sense of pricing so that I can see if my job might help fund my registration? Thanks!

     I can't release that information yet, but the pricing model will be similar to 2017 (https://pretix.eu/troikatronix/werkstatt-2017/) but with a ~25% increase in price due to the fact that this time around there are four full days of workshops instead of three.

    I just edited the post to include one more piece of information that may be relevant to you, (since you're relatively new to Isadora and need to apply for funding from your place of employment in order to attend):

    "TroikaTronix will be providing free, one-month Isadora licenses to any Werkstatt attendees who do not already own an Isadora license."

    That is to say that you don't need to buy or already own an Isadora license in order to participate in the Werkstatt. If people already have licenses when they come or they buy a license ahead of time, that's great, but for anyone who does not have a license we provide free licenses that last a month so that they can participate. (We know that Werkstatt ticket + travel (often a plane ticket) + accommodations + food + pocket money can really add up.)


  • I'm very much looking forward to hopefully coming to this (I did the one back in 2016 and it was superb). 

    In terms of beginning to plan how much to budget for the trip, do you have a plan of what time sessions would start on the Wednesday & finish on the Saturday? Are both full days, so should I be looking for Tuesday - Sunday stay?

     Sessions will begin at approximately 10am on Wednesday. We have full days planned for all four days. Saturday night may well end up being a late night (stay tuned for an announcement at the beginning of June for more details on the subject).


  • Thanks @woland! I'll aim for the duration then! :-) 


  • @woland

    Hey Lucas, if we wanted to offer a performance of our show at the Werkstatt, who should I contact to talk to about that?


  • Dear Isadora Staff,

    I trying to get into the shop to buy the Werkstatt ticket but it seems doesn't work? Anyone can help me?

    Thanks

    Francesco

    It may just be me, but I don't see the pdf anywhere. The link for the schedule just takes me to a video. Could someone help me out?

    This is now fixed. Thanks!


  • I have a problem with the Werkstatt program and perhaps I am not alone with this problem. The different presentation during a day are not similar but seem to be interesting for the same people so it is not possible to visit more than one. Personally I am interesting in:

    Loopstation (part 1 of 2)
    Composition and the Hybrid Instrument/Interface
    Generating Content: Isadora as a Generative Video Tool (part 1 of 2)
    Getting the Most from Isadora 3

    but all at the same time and I think some people would go to
    MIDI Show Control Freak: Isadora, QLab 
    and
    Lighting Consoles  and Talking to Lights; DMX, Artnet, and Pixel Mapping

    also at the same time. It is very frustrating.

    best
