SEPTEMBER 6 to 10 in ITALY at La Radice Dei Viandanti

Creative Laboratory - Environmental Frequencies

Francesca Pedullá - Barış Mihçi​​​
with the special participation of Eric Acakpo

Sept 6th to 9th - 9:30 to 12:30
Sept 10th - 15:00 - 18:00 and 18:30 Performance 

We will propose a subtle, mentally and physically stimulating inquest into internal and external conditions. We have prepared a variety of engaging games and perspective shifting tasks that disturb and refresh viewpoint and offer grounds for renewed understanding, awareness and choice of options. This session is meant as a key-in to tune into the self, and tune oneself to the local environment, to the others present, to the larger biosphere, the planet, the universe….

We will accompany you in transforming this experience into a creative journey, assisting you in an artistic re-elaboration that we will share at the end of the session.

Environmental Frequencies will culminate with a public showing
