Never as Always. Now as Always. Here and now.

Where I am, I do not know it, I will never know it.

In the silence, you don’t know it,

Tired of looking at things from an usual and obsolete perspective, with few friends, full of memories and remembrances, with a no-limits imagination, pathological, perverted, deprived, deviant, surreal, overwhelmed and overruled by daily prosaic worries and ordinary thoughts, being still beautiful, in a constant journey towards new productions, slowly moving to an end, living into an irreversible crisis, always clutched by doubts, sometimes radiant, other times miserable, being stuck for an answer, when where is a nowhere or somewhere else, with at least a hope in our hearts- looking at a feeble response, our fragile constituent limits – we invite people to gather those left things they really care- to share them with us and the others.

It offers a key to understand how a performance artist can approach through a process of making a performative piece.

– During the exercises in different conditions the participants are being provided with tools and conceive, create and realize a performance, using mainly the own body as a tool. The exercises are aimed to touch and develop our most human inner sensors in order to activate memories, and to open our perception to transform pure ideas into a concrete, primarily real action.

– Further, the goal is to get distance from the mere being “virtuous” by establishing, evaluating, and energizing the personal action in one’s self.

The workshop result will be the presentation of each participant’s performance.
