THE CONCEPT and PROJECT DESIGN

____________________________________________________________________________

The WALL DIALOGUE RESISTANCE is a project, co-funded by the European Union under the Europa Creativa cooperative programme, with Teatro di Sardegna as main partner and under the artistic direction of Sara Marasso and Stefano Risso that aims to recreate a different way of experiencing performing art and public space through involvement of local people in the creative process, describing a landscape and a community through a contemporary narrative. The project uses the image of the wall, both a physical and mental limit, as a practical and symbolic guide to an open creative process with the aim to develop a performance-format that can creatively elaborate the encounter with a territory and its inhabitants.

The participative character of the project is realised during single short residencies of 3/5 days in which some actions are proposed:
1. a movement/sound workshop to discover that the strongest limits are the invisible ones we carry ourselves as positions in space, postures, ways of speaking and gestures in which prejudices and values are hidden such as the expression: stand up straight/right as a self-made man
2. an open-air appointement to play a game in a public space in front of a wall (1,2,3 Stella)
3. a final performance as a moment to open the process, partecipate and share.

The structure unfolds through five artistic residencies hosted by the partners involved and realized through a single journey linking them all, which takes place from August 21st to October 1st 2022. The residencies will use action tools such as workshops, thinking laboratories and the popular cross national game.

Each residence will end with a PERFORMANCE as a collective emotional experience of a common space. After this, a period of reworking and post-production of the multimedia and textual contents produced will follow, and it will include a FILM, a PODCAST, a GRAPHIC STORYTELLING and a PERFORMANCE FORMAT.

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 project wants to stimulate the dialogue / participation / interaction of European citizens through a human site-specific participatory approach to the creation in performing arts, to apply the creative process for overcoming separations from each other, and to disseminate a methodological creative format to make culture more inclusive.
