29th August – 2nd September 2022
In Marosi Festival 2022 “Around a process of making” intends to enter increasingly into dialogue with the design idea that gives rise to a creative process. In the initial phase of a process, there is an incessant and restless interrogation activity. The relationship with the questions is expressed in research and, sometimes, in the production of research methodologies that allow us to get closer and closer to what we are generating. With the aim to foster dialogue between different generations of artists, in 2022 Marosi dedicates the higher education space to the coaching formula.
A maximum of 6 unpublished research projects at the initial stage will be selected. The projects will be accompanied by the external gaze of four artists and a curator. Each of these artists will deal with a specific aspect in relation to the development of the project: movement research and choreography, dramaturgical and concept development, sound and spatiality are some of the aspects that will be addressed.
The coaching sessions will be individual, carefully structured and can take place in the form of conversation and / or in that of action.
The working days will be organized as follows: every morning the participants will have a shared workspace where one of the coachers will stimulate body research with inputs and tasks for a maximum of two hours of work per day. During the last two days – in the morning – participants may be given the opportunity to carry out body work independently in the form of shared training, to encourage participants to transform their research questions into body practices to be proposed to fellows, observing how a personal proposal rooted in one’s research can resonate in another body and in another project. In the afternoon, each participant will find a space on the island to work, independently, on his own project. It is here that, through a structured and pre-established calendar of appointments, the coaches “will come to visit” the research of the participants for a maximum of two appointments per day lasting approximately one hour.
The selected projects will not necessarily have to lead to the development of a performance. However, if you feel that an initial discussion with the public is necessary for the current phase of the process, we have reserved an ad hoc space within the program of the festival on 3 September, “Opening dancing roofs” , where you can share your research with the festival audience.
In addition, the most promising researches will be able – thanks to the support of Marosi and all the affiliated companies in partnership – to find support and be presented the following year within our and other Festivals.
“Around a Process of making” is a pedagogical path devoted to rethinking the forms and roles in the transmission of knowledge and experience. In 2022 the coaches will be: Annika Pannitto, Peter Jasko, Clara Furey and Maya M. Carroll.
The Marosi team will carry out a constant and careful action of participatory and participatory observation, an active curating action.
This call is aimed at unpublished and emerging choreographic research projects. A maximum of 6 projects will be selected.
