Little Fun Palace_Scuola Nomadica
4 – 8 September
WeGil and La Pelanda
max 10 people
The Little Fun Palace caravan returns to Short Theatre in 2020 and this time takes two forms, multiplying its possibilities of reinventing space and being together.
During Covid-19’s enforced quarantine time, there came a need to transform Little Fun Palace into a Nomadic School; an experiment in which the accentuated individuality of isolation is funnelled into collective moments to rethink our relationship with the spaces surrounding us. Analysing the hidden political implications of a caravan, we can challenge the rules in which we work [in theatre] and we live [in reality].
The Nomadic School is aimed at a young audience of architects, designers, theatre-makers as well as artists and offers four workshops/meetings with as many figures as possible covering the areas between research and artistic practice, investigating space and landscape as aesthetic territories that have political implications whilst not using the language of politics.
The Nomadic School does not exclude anyone and is open even to professionals from all types of backgrounds: basically to anyone who wants to question who decides what is real, leaving the distancing typical of academic and some cultural environments way behind in the rear view mirror.
Little Fun Palace wants to be a performative caravan that holds a mirror up to itself and – at the same time – to the different artistic practices that grow from their infinite exchanges with the environment, guests and public. By embracing the uncertainty of different points of view, and of a heterogeneous community, it is in a sense what will make the production of knowledge tangible to all participants.
