Constellations I & II : Art - Activism - Artivism +||+ Arts of the Body & Health

Encounter a zany collective of artistic practitioners & scholars and get immersed in their practices and processes as art for health & social change.

Constellations I: Art - Activism - Artivism

https://constellations1.eventbrite.co.uk

An exciting cycle of encounters where artists, scholars and practitioners will share the unzaniest nature of their practices within a participative dynamic. Experience immersions and creative process and be part of a forum of discussions and creation of new ideas in this constellation that will stir our minds around what really is: Art & Artivism and how can we activate the spaces around us. Practitioners will be teaching each other and sharing the core of their performance making and poetic creation with the public. We want to offer the general public and curious artists something that is more than a couple of gigs or sessions. We are offering the possibility for you to have further insight into political creative practices but also raising awareness to horizontal and collaborative political organization as articulated by Alexander Dugin in his work on the Fourth Political Theory. The idea is to produce provocation, debates and forums for new ideas.

Practitioners will share their experience inviting participants on a journey of discoveries of their own potential and guide them into exploring new skills and improving their performance. 

We want to offer the general public and interested artists something that is more than a couple of gigs or sessions. We are offering the possibility to have a personal investigation into the power of deep listening, the alignment of the spine and its connection to sound and breath, the Topology and Lemniscate on Laban Bartenieff System. The idea is to produce wellbeing, wholeness and a space for creation and self-development.

 

Constellations III: coming soon…

 

Intercultural Roots (borne from the IFTR Embodied Research Working Group) has been offering affordable online classes since March 16th as an emergency response to Covid-19 to provide inter-related physical and mental support during this crisis that had imposed a sudden lifestyle shift to everyone’s routines. Starting with 76 participants in the first week, their bookings page ‘Get Active Online’ got suddenly quite busy. It reached over 2,500 people in four months. For the next six weeks, they will roll out a new round of sessions which draw on techniques including traditional Chinese medicine, taoism, dance, movement, physical theatre as well as opportunities for artists to immerse themselves in one another’s creative processes.
