Re-designing Wor(l)ds (RDW22) is an international youth exchange project bringing together 31 young people from urban and rural areas of Austria, Germany, Greece, Hungary and Italy, to jointly reflect on socio-political issues that concern them deeply, with a specific focus on the effects of the pandemic on the development of their means and possibilities.
The many virtual inputs brought by the suddenly accelerated digital transition need to find an embodiment, an elaboration of new ways to be present in the digital dimension without losing the body, the senses, the perception of oneself as part of a living community.
The workshop included various activities: reflections and work on the chosen topics, interdisciplinary workshops between movement, sound and visual art, moments of group creation.
On Thursday, March 3rd at 6.00 pm, the results of this path were presented to the public in the form of a site-specific action in the spaces of Performance Art Research Center – PARC.
Artistic and pedagogical coordinators were Susannah Iheme (movement/gesture/dance), Conny Beißler (media) and Maximien Aldebert (music production), with the collaboration of Marina Arienzale (performance art and photography), Andrea Lovo (sound/music) and Olga Pavlenko (visual art), and a masterclass by art critic and curator Petro Gaglianò.
