OHT_Little Fun Palace

Progetto in residenza

6 – 7 September | WeGil – Piazzetta | h 6 pm – h 12 pm
8 – 14 September | La Pelanda – Outside Zone | h 6 pm – h 12 pm

A trailer. A little, handheld pavilion. A bar. A fleeting meeting place. A tribute to Fun Palace, Cedric Price’s and Joan Littlewood’s legendary project, which in the Sixties wanted to create a university on the street, a laboratory of fun. Little Fun Palace is a parasite -and independent- project presented jointly with OHT’s shows, where meetings, talks, dances, and other forms of spontaneity are held. A project which focuses on the moment that follows the cultural offering; a moment whereby ideas, words and people’s reactions need space to develop. Little Fun Palace faces a contemporary vacuum by exhuming the raison d’etre of public spaces; an open forum born thanks to the natural meeting of (among) people.

In a free, jointed and independent spirit, Little Fun Palace explores every facet of reality in its appropriate fields. A seriously spontaneous inquiry which liberates intelligence from intellectualism.
