On line workshop on Beyond Borders International project
“Theatre is metaphysical, for it suggests that there are many things or events that escape our normal language and perception. It is also political, because it uses such an intuition for guiding our imagination and actions towards a different as well as happier reality. When metaphysic and politics meet, good utopias or “eutopias” are born.”
Enrico Piergiacomi, Guest Philosopher of Beyond Borders
The workshop comes from Instabili Vaganti’s long-standing experience in facing strongly actual issues as social commentary and political activism using physical theatre, performance art and multimedia. Throughout their extended world tours, the company has worked in contact with different cultures in heavily critical political environments and borderlands.
In order to continue to keep active and alive the intercultural dialogue between international artists, during the frontiers closure and the global restrictions caused by the Pandemics, Instabili Vaganti created Beyond Borders. This international project foresees, both remote and live collaborations through the use of digital media and online platforms, periods of artistic residency, co-creation processes, exchange of practices and training, in different countries of the world.
This workshop will focalize on theatre as a tool of social commentary and, at the same time, as a means of expression for the performer’s creative freedom. During the work, the participants will be invited to inhabit the “theatrical space” and explore its metaphysical/political dimension in order to acquire the necessary instruments to reconstruct an Agora, a Polis, meant as a founding structure of theatre itself, as an ideal place to experiment a plural opinion.
