Wall Dialogue Resistance: a Creative Europe project
The project Wall Dialogue Resistance in its European and itinerant version has been selected by the European Creative Europe programme.
After its birth in Faro and its development in Bologna, Rome, Cagliari and Livorno is for us an important achievement, beautiful and frightening at the same time, but we are very happy and would now like to present the project in its entirety, made possible thanks to the teamwork of many people!
co-funded by CREA-CULT-2021-COOP n. 101055870
Each residence will end with a PERFORMANCE as a collective emotional experience of a common space.
The project focuses on the open process, emphasizing the work of questioning and research, on the eco-sustainability and the human impact that will resonate with the people of the four Mediterranean countries involved: Italy, France, Spain and Portugal.
The research, aware about the complex times we are all living, chooses to explore the concept of the WALL as a physical and symbolic guide for a creative process considering the meanings of the words dialogue and resistance from the following perspective:
Wall as a symbol of the spatial and emotional distances existing in human relationships, considering limit related to opportunity
Dialogue as involvement of bodies and voices in relation to the question:what’s beyond the wall?
Resistance as ability to look beyond, to reinforce the tool of imagination, to see a common space that can emerge in all its necessity
The wall relates us to the concepts and questions around balance, freedom and boundaries, offering a practical experience about how verticality can dialogue with the horizontal plan, and how the individual is placed in a space where everyone is connected. The wall with its qualities becomes the tool to explore the resonance, the limit and the quality of the resistance in terms of movement and sound / rhythm recognizing the pivotal role of the body as tool for dialogue and partecipation.
