taller de performance art SER SEMILLA con Isil Sol Vil

Share

Category:

Country:

Taller práctico de performance enfocado a lo liminal de nuestras corporalidades. Entendiendo liminal como referencia a una zona de pasaje, a una puerta de entrada, al origen de una zona de ambigüedad en la que algo deja de ser lo que era, para potencialmente poder transformarse en otra cosa.

A partir de propuestas performativas con nuestras cuerpas como materia prima, llegaremos a estados alterados de la conciencia y del ser. Destruiremos la noción del tiempo y del espacio tal y como se entiende en la actualidad. Reconectaremos con nuestra cuerpa a partir del cansancio, el agotamiento, el compartirnos en comunidad, la humildad y la otredad. Seremos semilla a partir de nuestras memorias.

A partir de la comunidad efímera que nos va a brindar el taller encarnaremos/engendraremos nuevos seres y traspasaremos algunas fronteras impuestas. Con el objetivo de cuidarnos, sentipensar en comunidad y arroparse en ella.

The 360 XOCHI QUETZAL Artist and Writer's Residency Program is located on Lake Chapala, the largest lake in Mexico, where the perfect year-round climate and stunning lake and mountain views have long established the region as an international artist mecca. Residents will be inspired by the natural beauty, history and culture of this special part of central Mexico. Chapala is located 25 minutes from Guadalajara International Airport (GDL) and 45 minutes from Guadalajara, one of the largest cities in Mexico boasting abundant cultural resources: museums, galleries, theatre and artist supplies. Xochi Quetzal is the Aztec goddess of creativity and fertility and protector of artisans. She is sure to inspire you during your stay!

Your residency also includes free wi-fi, all utilities, weekly maid service, (weekly laundry pickup is available for an additional charge) and a 22-page Residency Handbook.

WHAT IS CHAPALA LIKE? In a word, charming. This is a small town with a population of 25,000. You will hear horses trotting along the cobblestone boulevard in the morning on their way to the stables. Cowboys ride by using their cell phones. Birdsong accompanies you throughout the day. In the winter, thousands of white pelicans entertain us on the lake. Trees blaze with psychedelic color year round. The mountains turn green during our 5 month rainy season (June - Oct). Vendors pass by during the day hawking fresh strawberries, bottled water, and ice cream.Read more about Chapala on our website

 

FUN: All live/work spaces are walking distance to a park with a running track, pool, tennis courts and walking trails. You are also minutes from the malecon, a park-like promenade that runs along the lake for a mile. The lake is surrounded by hundreds of mountains and you will enjoy spectacular sunsets almost every night. The weather is sunny 300 days a year with average daytime temperatures in the 70s. Other nearby activities include hiking, dancing, bird-watching and thermal springs.

 

COMMUNITY: Chapala and nearby Ajijic have dozens of cafes, galleries, cultural centers, art openings, and hundreds of artists to connect or study with. Everything you need is within walking distance and bus service is frequent and inexpensive. This is a safe place to live and work and the Villa QQ Hotel grounds are locked and secure.

 

MISC:  Although speaking a little Spanish will make your time here more culturally integrated, you do not need to speak the language to get what you need. You are just a 5 minute walk from many stores, restaurants and buses.

 

HOUSE RULES: Pets are not permitted at the Villa QQ Hotel (there are other options at the many bed and breakfast hotels nearby). Smoking, drugs and firearms are expressly prohibited.

International Playable Theatre Lab

Share

Eligibility:

The International Playable Theatre Lab is a two-week digital residency offering artists in North Macedonia and Mexico the opportunity to explore the potential of interactive and playable theatre. We will bring together three theatre makers in North Macedonia and three in Mexico for a two-week online programme of exchange, training, mentoring and peer support. Each day of the residency, artists will take part in a half-day online workshop exploring a different approach to making theatre playable in the digital space, delivered by mentor artists who are expert in this approach.

Alongside these workshops, participating artists will be given several hours each day to work on a project of their own. Each artist will apply with a very early idea for a project in mind, which they will work on throughout the residency. In each workshop, the artists will be explore ways in which they might use that tool or approach to develop their project. At the end of the fortnight, the participating artists will share a scratch version of their project with their fellow participants and the mentor artists.

The lab is produced and facilitated by Upstart Theatre (London, UK), in partnership with Teatro al Cubo (Mexico City, Mexico), and MI Film (Skopje, North Macedonia). It is funded by the British Council.
