"A truly unique experience. A great chance to meet those beautiful minds and bodies. Share space; feel, smile, cry, create, destroy, wonder, go a step further... Definitely a place to just be and create. I allowed myself to flow into undiscovered mythologies and utopias and I dove deep inside my unconscious. I don't know what happened, where I arrived but the journey was certainly memorable and impactful on my practice."
"I felt greatly inspired and supported by Dagmar, Paul, Andreas and Francesco. My idea of performance is a lot more exciting now. I have so much respect for everyone involved in the workshop."
"Unforgettable and beyond words. It's difficult to find any other way to truly convey my experience of the workshop and the influence it has had on expanding my connections. What I can say with confidence is that it has deepened my practice and my understanding of family artistically, both practically and affectionately."
“Of all the workshops I've been involved in, working with Paul, Alexandra and Dagmar is one that sticks most in my head. Not just because of processes we went through in the workshop, but the lasting professional and personal relationships formed. There are vivid memories that remain in my head of the inspirational actions I witnessed by the participants and facilitators that continue to inform my practice.”
“What an experience.... I cried when it ended.... I just wanted to stay in that room and not go home. A week was not enough. So many new discoveries were made and it has helped me progress and develop as a performer. But it was just the tip of the iceberg, and I hope to soon get the chance to come back again into Zierle & Carter’s warm and transformative space, where I can unearth more things I didn’t know were there.”
“My Marathon experience was a journey working through material in connection to the body and a journey about letting go; letting go and being led by the material. To let it flow and only afterwards to take time to reflect. It was a deep experience in to connecting through creativity.”
"The Marathon Workshop in Athens 2015 at Booze Cooperativa was an opening to approach a different way for me to explore live performance, giving me the chance to learn from artists whom are influential in the field, letting me grasp invaluable knowledge which continues to contribute towards my development as artist working with performance art."
