Cucù everyone! happy spring to all,
and may ideas and new sensitivities flourish, may creativity be with us all and sustain change.

In these months we have found ourselves exploring connections between darkness, water, writing and the body. We have used the walls as pages and the water graffito has become an opportunity to reflect on languages, visibility and writing as bodily action.

So a virtual space is just born to share some insights from our research, because the work that emerges is always a piece of what moves underneath:

MAY / JUNE 2023

New project residency
Stare ad occhi aperti nel buio (working title)

17 May – 18 June 2023
we will be in residency at TEATRO da VOZ company headquarters of
Lisbon Cultural Association founded by Sílvia Real and Sérgio Pelágio
to explore and elaborate materials for an immersive performance in a darkened environment where dark will serve to glimpse the body and water writing to glimpse signs and meanings.
many thanks to Silvia e Sergio and to all the team for the hospitality!

Going on…

Wall Dialogue Resistance | Call to action


What’s beyond the wall?  It’s the question that accompanied us during each stage of a month-and-a-half-long journey by train across Mediterranean Europe to the west, which we started on 21st August 2022 and from which we recently returned. It has been an intense journey that brought us together with so many beautiful people and many stories and that we would like to continue with you.

This newsletter is an invitation to participate, to send us your words and images around the wall. As a limit that divides space and interrupts our daily routine: a way to talk about all of us, about the isolation in which we live, about the possibilities of imagining and acting a future in such a complex and challenging time. Transforming the inability and impossibility to see and move as an opportunity to stop, slow down, reflect, return to sensitivity, contact, imagination, open communication…

What’s beyond the wall? What images, emotions, words do you find beyond it? 

an open space for sharing the project JOIN IN! write it in your language!

21st august – 30th september


On 30 September, the biggest WALL DIALOGUE RESISTANCE Creative Europe CREA-CULT-2021-COOP No. 101055870 journey came to an end. A crazy journey, five European stops in six weeks: Vermenagna Valley, Marseille, Noviercas e Zaragoza, Porto and at the end Cagliari.

We met people, discovered places, tasted territories and cultures, played, laughed, experimented and reflected around the concept of the WALL, and then, in a few days of residence, at each stage built and staged a performance.

Sharing this experience with so many people is what made the project fully participatory  and for this a  special thank you goes to all those who took part and shared this experience with us.

Wall Dialogue Resistance is a project that is expanding and that makes us discover how much being  going deep into a research brings out unexpected and unthought of nuances. Wall Dialogue Resistance from 2019 until today has become multifaceted and vital, so much that finding ourselves at the Malaposta Cultural Centre in two is like a return to the origins, to the first residency in Faro where the idea was explored for the first time.
