HEALING NATURE ( ECO-THERAPY AND HOLISM )

Healing nature seeks to address the dis-ease caused by a disconnect between humans and nature. Because holism is supposedly all encompassing, it is important to explore the interconnectedness of humans with their amazing ecosystem and natural habitat. Ecotherapy usually involves sensory awareness practices that invite us to expand the mind-body-spirit connection. By inviting nature into the therapeutic alliance, we are holding the space for the person to connect with their natural environment and provide them with deeper understanding of themselves and their place in the world.

WORKSHOP-SEMINARIO RESIDENZIALE DI RECITAZIONE REALISTA

Il seminario intensivo di recitazione , tenuto da Giovanni Morassutti , si concentrerà sui principi cardine della scuola realista americana . Il seminario è a numero chiuso, massimo 12 allievi, ed è aperto ad attori professionisti , allievi attori , allievi principianti . Le lezioni saranno suddivise in lezioni di tecnica e studio delle scene . Durante le lezioni di tecnica verrà sviluppato il rilassamento sulla sedia , la concentrazione , la memoria sensoriale , il training dell’immaginazione , l’improvvisazione strutturata e il lavoro sull’animale . Queste tecniche consentono all’attore di entrare in contatto con il proprio strumento creativo e con i propri impulsi più spontanei al fine di sviluppare una maggior consapevolezza rispetto alla capacità di usare se stesso all’interno del lavoro scenico.Durante il seminario si affronterà inoltre lo studio del personaggio, direttamente esplorando una scena tratta da un’opera teatrale consigliata dall’insegnante o su richiesta dell’allievo . Lo studio della scena e del personaggio si svilupperà attraverso un dialogo interattivo tra attore e insegnante prima , durante e dopo la scena . Durante lo studio delle scene si esplorerà in maniera organica:” l’impulso”,” la percezione” , “l’espressione” , “l’immaginazione” , “la logica di comportamento” , “l’emozione” ,” la sensazione” , “la relazione con l’altro” ,” la comprensione della scena “e” l’analisi attiva del testo” . L’obbiettivo è di portare tutti questi principi nel corpo e di riuscire a canalizzarli in un comportamento . Le scene saranno “scene a due” e ciascun singolo attore avrà la possibilità di lavorare tutti i giorni, potendo cosi sviluppare uno studio approfondito del personaggio . Il seminario dura 5 giorni ed è distribuito su 6 ore giornaliere .
L’orario è dalle 17.00 alle 23.30 con una pausa di mezz’ora durante la quale potrete scegliere se mangiare all’aperto gustandovi il tramonto nel silenzio oppure seduti ad una grande tavolata all’interno della Foresteria Art Aia.
Durante il periodo del Seminario è possibile, inoltre, alloggiare in camera doppia presso la Foresteria Art Aia conciliando il lavoro creativo con la pace ispirante della natura .

CREATING MULTI-PURPOSE CROSS-DISCIPLINARY ART CENTRE VIA THE REUSE OF EXISTING ABANDONED BUILDINGS IN A RURAL AREA.

Creating a multi-purpose cross-disciplinary art center via the reuse of existing abandoned buildings in a rural area.

The main goal of the project is to create a multi-purpose learning and performing center via the reuse of existing abandoned buildings and spaces inside the farm ( Art Aia -Creatives\in\Residence) and to assist visiting partners in the creation of a workshop\performance\exhibition within the space.The visiting partner is free to decide the topic and the techniques to be used. After a desk and field research on the abandoned structure, during a residency program, a workshop\performance\exhibition will be prepared by the visiting partner based on the result of the research. The purpose is to revitalize the anthropogenic element of the building/ space. Together with the creation of the workshop\performance\exhibition, there will be the preparation of the abandoned building/ Space during which the hosting partner involves volunteers/ local authorities/ sponsors, in order to prepare the structure for the event. The participants of the performance will be performers/artists/ workshop participants from 2 partners – the hosting one and the one that directs it. The visiting partner would also have to be willing to host our group and collaborate in the creation of a workshop\performance\exhibition in an abandoned structure, i.e. abandoned factories, hospitals, monasteries, churches, worthy buildings, quarries, farms etc.,of their city/ town in order to foster cultural exchange and to implement activities and their possible wishes and ideas for future plans in the specific abandoned building/ place.

We are looking for any performer, artist or art organisation (private or public) that is interested in creating a workshop\performance\exhibition in an abandoned worthy buildings inside a farm immersed in the nature of the Friulian Countryside of northern Italy and that is also willing to host our group and collaborate in the creation of a workshop\performance\exhibition in an abandoned structure of their city/ town in order to increase community redevelopment and revitalization as well as self development for new, sustainable growth in Europe.
The aim of the project is also to re-skill and up-skill learners in innovative, creative pedagogical techniques, the art of filming, the use of information and communication technology and organizational and promotional abilities.
Each hosting partner involves volunteers/ local authorities/ sponsors, in order to prepare the structure for the event, i.e. clean the place, remove any material that can cause harm, place seats for the audience, provide lights and sound system, promote the event etc.
The project will be issued with videos on the preparation, workshop, performance/ exhibition and of each partner and a short video of overall partners’ activities.There will be the creation of a Facebook Page and of a Website as posters and informative leaflets for each workshop & performance or exhibition. Articles/ advertisements in local and national newspapers, magazines and informational websites will disseminate the information and eventually there will be the issuing of a Guide on how to exploit abandoned buildings presenting case studies in form of an e-book.
Creating a multi-purpose learning, performing and center is an open art project. Artists, architects, designers, but also people who have brilliant ideas are also invited to send their information about creative projects, to be developed at Art Aia-Creatives \ In \ Residence. Interested building companies can also offer to create an interesting space in cooperation with the artists and the art center.

Art Aia – Creatives / In / Residence is an international art residency for artistic production and research that combines art, environmental sustainability, and Eco-therapy practices. It focuses on the development of the creative process, facilitating cultural exchange across borders. The venue is located near the Comune of Sesto al Reghena in the north-eastern Italian region Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
