Open studio for shared practices based on movement and on thinking together as an embodied process.

Once a month, I invite one artist to problematize and unfoldwhat is moving and being moved by us. Considering performative practices as fields of experimentation into the complex existential dimensions of life, Matéria is an encounter with the universe of each artist, with their modes of doing and thinking, the questions related to their current works. Matéria opens space also for those practices that are usually excluded, due to different contingencies, from the process of production of a performance or an artistic object.  Matéria proposes a micro-encounter between two different and autonomous artistic practices that open themselves to the potential of contamination and transformation, by inhabiting the same time, the same space and the same bodies.

Matéria is open to all bodies, to all speeds and sensitivities, with or without experience in performing arts. Open to everyone curious about exploring territories of physical, spatial, emotional and energetic awareness; to everyone with a desire to dwell on/in the visible and invisible matter that compose and trespass us and to which we are connected.

Conscious contribution: between 10€ and 20€ per session.
