Sentieri is a workshop, a devising process and a performance moment. Participants will go through all these different steps, having the possibility to deepen their artistic research. It is the perfect occasion to come in touch with our composing method for site-specific creations. It is also a way to enlarge the reflection on site-specific performing art and its synergic, multidisciplinary possibilities. The creation will be a co-creation, as we invite participants to make propositions. Working within a group and mixing different arts and abilities will be an interesting challenge. Working in and for nature make us go back to a refined knowledge, the process leading to the “listening” and discovery of the park will at the same time enrich your “inner land”.

Upon arriving at a new place, we draw on our collective backgrounds in performance (music, visual art, dance) while opening ourselves to new exchanges. Our process begins by studying and listening to the space, and meeting with the local community. Our approach is collaborative by nature, and thrives off of new influences; therefore we integrate both professional artists as well as amateurs into our work, devising the different abilities in a common artistic process.

The connection between poetry, music and live performance is a strong element in our work. Our performing patterns will mainly be developed by the presence of the body (physical/visual action, dance) together with voice-music patterns. We like readapting props, using materials in a creative way, making the event unique both for the use of the space and for the tools that can only be found there. Finally, we work open to surprise and response.

The source of inspiration for the performing process is the space and the community we encounter. All local community is involved: it will voluntarily or involuntarily assist to the ongoing creation steps till the final event. In this sense, our project is both a production and formation project aiming to integrate artists and territory. The final event is inspired and created according to the given space and people collaborating with us. Our process begins with this “listening”.

Sentieri aims to revalue the site through performing arts. It means, for instance, the deep contact between participants and the place. As foreigners and as artists we cross the space with new eyes. This is the experience we aim to be done by the audience. Our creation is meant to be a moment of truce: visions arise where normally nothing happens. With a change of perspective, a change of sight, another side appears, a side that we did not perceive before. So we train our sight towards an elsewhere, we let ourselves discover other forms, other ways. This is what art teaches us, to maintain an awaken sight, curious and careful to the present moment. Towards a life asking to become a certain thing, certain rules, certain roles, certain attitudes, certain habits, we discover a splinter, a doubt, a ray. We discover ourselves having more perspectives than what we thought, the possibility to change, to choose, to sense, to transform. The audience will experience the place, which is part of its territory, in a different way, with different eyes.
