“Lugares” Diários de corpos e paisagens.

“LUGARES_diaries of bodies and landscapes” is a cycle of itinerant artistic residencies born in 2017 with the idea of ​​investigating the relationship and coincidence between body and space, anatomy and geography. Here being-in-the-world allows us to open perception of the sensitive and therefore “fantastic” body.

We have been traveling and dancing together since 2017, our group of dancers, gardeners, philosophers, independent artists scattered throughout Europe, every summer meet to do research together, each time immersed in a different landscape. After getting lost in the cork groves of Alentejo, dancing naked in the church of Belmonte, after seeing the swans swinging on the cold waves of the Baltic Sea and shivering at the foot of Etna, this year we will witness sudden increases in splendor under the starry sky of UK. From 5 to 10 of July we will have the honor of being hosted in the former astronomical observatory of Bidstone, currently young and active Artistic Research Centre located in the countryside of Liverpool.

We are happy to invite you to COSMICA, the brightest dance residency in our solar system🪐

The residence is a place of mutual care where not only movement but also writing, painting and sculpture are tools of creation and research. These are days of immersion in nature, where the breath relaxes and with it the imagination. After exploring the authentic movement of the individual and collective body, we work with improvisation. The workshop concludes with a site-specific performance in which the stage opens up to a horizontal dramaturgical action between humans, plants and minerals and multispecies real-time composition.

Suspended in the air effortlessly, everything contributes to its existence without needing to contract a single muscle. Green surface that opens up to the sky, the leaf is the paradigmatic form of openness, life capable of giving itself to the world breathing. Grasping the mystery of plants means remembering that we are climate, atmosphere, an infinite mixture of all things present, past and future.
