La Geografia delle Budella (The geography of bowels)
11 – 12 – 13 – 14 September | 2.30–6.30 pm
Teatro India | Sala Oceano
The workshop is free and aimed at people up to 30 years of age.
In La Geografia delle Budella, Eva Geatti restarts the creative mechanism that led to the scenic writing of her latest theatre work, La Vaga Grazia. The workshop, as well as the performance, is inspired by the first chapter of Mount Analogue by René Daumal and by two words that evoke a posture and a research approach: Autocreation and Psichogeography.
Autocreation is meant as the attempt to keep a regular timing in the research for a spontaneous and original movement without following instructions about rhythm or style. To do so, it’s necessary to take into account all body parts, internal organs above all, avoid automatisms and perceive temperatures through constant monitoring. Psychogeography is the exercise that allows one to keep a constant mental narrative made of inflows and outflows – while continuing to move – and to relocate one’s thought in the flesh, in the organs. In this way, the movement relies on a shared time and space: the present and the location where a common work is carried on to develop a writing of relationships.
Eva Geatti will be accompanied by composer Dario Moroldo who in real time will create acoustic patterns to follow, contrast with or highlight the participants’ gesture practices – his patterns won’t suggest the bodies how to move but instead will continuously create new interaction triggers.
