The other: links and barriers
Creating in and with public spaces
Lead by Jordi L. Vidal
This project consists in two parts.
1st one is a dance and physical theatre improvisation and composition workshop / laboratory and as result the 2nd one which is a final public presentation(s).
During the whole period the aim is to explore and create with and on public spaces on the topic "The Other: links and barriers"
From each participant’s creativity, this laboratory will be the catalyst for theatrical proposals for the final presentation(s).
Its goal is producing performances that create a dialogue with the urban space and its inhabitants.
It wills reinvent/imagine/investigate public space, temporarily transforming the places and the relational trajectories that run through them.
Public space conceived as a form of time and a research area, a horizon where the spectator can reconnect with the urban, historical, architectural and relational fabric of a specific place.
Move and make the environment resonate by living it in a new way. (Re) discovering surprising and unusual solutions to obstacles, barriers, architectural constraints so, that they become allies and playing partners.
Length: ideally the exploration lab is 6 days. 6h x day + days of public presentations.
Local participants: from 18 till 100 years old (amateurs and / or professionals) who are willing to explore their creativity with movement and have a regular artistic practice.
Public places: an apartment, a bus station, a square, a hospital…to be decided together
