OpenCall#43 by Anna Dora Dorno & Nicola Pianzola, Italy

March 3, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Rs. 500

Criteria: Participants are required to bring two pairs of jeans and two white T-shirts each. Better if you know something about Ayotzinapa forced disappearence of the 43 Mexican students. You can simply google it.

The workshop is born within the Megalopolis project in order to explore mass dynamics, including street demonstrations resulting from socio-political events that, in spite of being generated as a reaction to local issues, turn into global reactions of international significance.

From general themes, research topic of the project, the workshop moves to a specific event: the forced disappearance of 43 Mexican students of Ayotzinapa that took place on 26 September 2014 in Iguala and the subsequent Global Actions taken by artists, students and demonstrators in response to the event.

The workshop will not only represent an occasion to work on a project, but also to share an “Acción Global”, a performative, political action aimed at joining the voices that still today ask for justice.

The 43 faces of the disappeared students have become an icon, a symbol of the struggle against the forced disappearances. This is the reason why we chose to address the workshop to 43 people.

The participants will work with Nicola Pianzola and Anna Dora Dorno, founders of the company, on physical, rhythmical and vocal training, on spatial dynamics and on the relationship between body, space and urban structures. Moreover, they will work on the construction of individual and collective physical actions based on the relationship between group and individual.

The workshop represents a concrete action to stimulate in the performer greater political awareness and to show to the audience the social importance of a civil-emotional theatre that can take charge of the contemporary societal issues and produce a positive reaction, in that it is artistic and poetic.

 The workshop is an integral part of the MEGALOPOLIS#Messico project. This is a key step based on the relationship established by the company with a fascinating and culturally rich country like Mexico, aimed at investigating artistic and anthropological aspects and analysing in detail its societal issues caused by globalization and geographical proximity to the United States.
