Talk by Sabrina Tosi Cambini / Professor of Cultural Anthropology, University of Parma
Art faces the challenges of the city. Some reflections on the connection between bodies in movement, creativity and social issues.
Brief exploration into the artistic and symbolic languages, especially those of the body, as concrete possibilities of change and transformation in the relationships with others and with the places of urban life. Also, the potential of the artistic and creative practices in the “participation” projects will be discussed.

Physical theater workshop, open to all
led by Association Juvenil Teatral On&Off, Spain
Rumours' is a workshop that reflects on the hateful speeches and rumors in which we participate in our day-to-day lives. We provide a space for experimentation and expression, using theatrical techniques to facilitate a space for reflection and creation of scenes that recreate hate speech (gestural and verbal) and how to identify the exclusive or inclusive actions we perform, sometimes unconsciously. The objective is: to become aware and begin to act in an inclusive way, abandoning paternalisms, superiorities and exclusions that respect old models of relationship between human beings. 'Rumors' is an attempt to shake consciences to walk together to a more human world.
Lesson on the gesture, open to all
led by Giulia Mureddu / Virgilio Sieni Academy of the Art of The Gesture, Florence
The lesson is open to everybody who desire to approach body language without dance knowledge. A lesson on living the body and the surrounding space. A path of awareness around primary gestures, “sweet” practices on listening to the body, on the importance and beauty of movement that becomes dance in dialogue with everyday life. The lesson will be based on a vocabulary of actions, walking, turning, the quality of the gesture, gravity and resonance.
