Vitamin D is a project consisting of multidisciplinary artistic workshops that encourage creative experimentation. Working in close proximity with audiences in various locations, the participating artists develop material in performance, visual arts and interdisciplinary fields.


The project takes as its starting point the concept of “Becoming” (“No man ever steps in the same river twice” – Heraclitus of Ephesus), as stated in relation to the natural world. It uses this principle to examine the ownership of the disciplines in question amid the ever-changing flow of things in space and time.


These premises (becoming nature/man) are put into artistic practice via interdisciplinary workshops in non-conventional spaces, encompassing the performing arts, sculpture and movement, photography, poetry and imagery, and public performance. These workshops incorporate and are absorbed by the bodies of the people who take part in them.
