On the last weekend of January, February and March 2022 the artist Nico Angiuli will hold three different workshops at MACTE (in Italian), and for each of them we are looking for adult participants who can join by writing to email@example.com or contacting the phone number of the museum. The workshops are the basis to build together with the artist in Termoli the project of a collective performance Part-Time Resistance, a project winner of the public notice PAC2020-Piano per l'Arte Contemporanea promoted by the Direzione Generale Contemporanea del Ministero della Cultura.
The workshops are free but require attentive and active participation. During each workshop we will reconstruct together stories of resistance to work with different temporalities and geographical origins that will be related to experiences and stories from Molise. In an atmosphere of collaboration and solidarity, each participant will be able to suggest possible reactivations of the events. The scenic and performative syntheses will be presented to the public in Termoli on 12 June 2022.
1_Lab of sound bones
Saturday 29 January from 3 pm to 7 pm
Sunday 30 January from 10 am to 1 pm
During the Communist years, in Albania prisoners formed an alphabet (alfabeti i qelive), a system similar to morse code, through which they were able to communicate by striking knuckles, fingers, elbows and other bones of their bodies on the cell walls.
2_Lab of stitching Saturday 26 February from 3 pm to 7 pm Sunday 27 February from 10 am to 1 pm
In the Ravensbrück concentration camp outside Berlin, prisoners were forced to work for the textile company “TexLed”. Seamstresses started making faulty stitching in coats, misplacing buttons and sewing big knots in the socks of SS officers.
3_Lab of sumūd Saturday, 26 March from 3 pm to 7 pm Sunday 27 March from 10 am to 1 pm
Sumūd is an Arabic word that means determination and resolution and it collects the resistance tactics of Palestinian women under occupation: such as staying in their homes even if damaged by bombings, or planting trees in place of those just uprooted by the settlers or dressing up like Israeli women to blend in with them.
Further events: At the end of April a seminar open to the public will be organised at MACTE with guests who inspired the research of the Part-Time Resistance project, while from the end of May to 12 June (staging of the project) Nico Angiuli and Eugenia Delfini will be in Termoli for rehearsals and collective staging.
Please let us know by the 20th of the month of the workshop if you would like to join (it is possible to participate to more than one workshop).
