"on being and being seen" - LAB with Xica Lisboa

on being and being seen

LAB with Xica Lisboa

“The human is born prematurely with a very fragile skin, requiring artificial protection of physical and, even more, symbolic nature, as it is symbolically that he proceeds his passage to the individual and social identity. The human is constantly exposed in the two meanings of the term: to the dangers and to the looks.” (excerpt from the book “In Name of The Body”by Nízia Villaça and Fred Góes)

Sharing researches and thematics worked on the process of “In Vitro”, this LAB will step on the contents of perception, presence, identity, acceptance, being, being moved and being seen. Through diverse approaches from ideokinesis/somatic movement, movement research, stage improvisation and practice related writing, the participants will be facilitated and encouraged to research, explore and occupy their personal territory. By alternating diving in one’s own perception, movement and images with sharing and watching moments, and by working on adjustment of in/out attention, they will be invited to investigate also how they relate to the collective territory – with its demands and looks. The focus is to work on the contents through performative and creative work and the performative and creative work through the contents.
