The topic of the first Wor(l)ding - Music workshop: playing contrapuncti, integrative inclusion of the polyphonic variations in relation to the music  of the W. A. Mozart and to the questions from postcolonial studies, such as the question of representation, cultural identity, cross-cultural sense of belonging. This was the first Wor(l)ding workshop with classical musicians and after their succesful collaboration ACD will continuously work on further development of such sessions worldwide and within various styles of music, dance, languages, and other forms and fields of art and science.
