THE ANIMALS THAT THEREFORE WE ARE
1-2 days workshop; 3-4 hours/day
Starting from the creation of Animale, I intend to share with the participants the same questions that inspired this research, as well as the strategies that we identified to enact a specific body language, a mental state, an intention.
The animals that therefore we are will offer a series of sound and other stimuli from the natural world, which are aimed at activating and training the faculty of imagination, the free association of ideas, the body’s memory, the ability to invent, to interpret, to represent. We will lay the foundations which will enable participants to suspend, as far as possible, the typically human predisposition to rational control, so as to indulge one’s intuitions instead. Because intuition isn’t just a quick or distracted glance: it entails delving into oneself, looking deep within.
