Being and Becoming

Being and Becoming is a perennial theme of philosophical debate. Is existence best captured through an idea of what we are, or what we might be, or could have become. Is existence a movement towards the same, or towards being something different. By profiling very different people and situations these four short documentaries tackle the theme of being and becoming in different ways.

Being and Becoming

Creative | Space

There seems to be a mysterious link between creativity and space. Some venues foster creativity and brilliant performances, while others just don't seem right. Some people need space to be creative, others find creativity through collaboration with others. Creativity thrives on the traditional stage. But 'the stage' can also be a pedestrian mall, or a dance event.
