RAGS OF MEMORY
IV° INTERNATIONAL WORK SESSION
16 – 23 November 2013
LIV Performing Arts Centre Bologna
Teatro Tempio – Festival Ogni mille passi doppi | Andante Modena
Rags of Memory is a project of research and education in the performing arts, created and directed by Instabili Vaganti, whose theme of research is the memory considered as essential part of the human being, as a biological and anthropological condition to one’s own existence. The project explores new ways of artistic expression and theatrical communication through the interaction with other disciplines such as cultural anthropology, visual arts, new media, dance, music and every other artistic form and expression of which man has memory. Rags of Memory is a “creative” artistic project, of contamination and experimentation that combines cultural tradition to innovation and that aims to the re-elaboration and re-definition of a new ritual.
International sessions of work are intensive programs of higher education and cultural interchange directed by Anna Dora Dorno and Nicola Pianzola open to visual artists, performers, musicians, video-makers coming from all over the world. During the sessions the international team of participants will work to the creation of artistic materials: physical and vocal actions, installations, musical compositions, artistic videos, set designs, which become essential part of the guide performing structure, created by the director. During the session a part of physical and vocal training directed by the company is organized, moments of exchange and sharing of traditional performing techniques, their re-elaboration and actualization through the contemporary arts, meetings with artists of different disciplines, scholars and anthropologists. In the sessions some events are organized: work demonstrations, study presentations, conferences, meetings of video-photographic presentation of the project, exhibits, installations.
