Workshop: Hosting others
20 June 2021, Parco di Trenno, Milan, Italy
led by Gaia del Negro, Silvia Luraschi, Cinzia Delorenzi

We are going to propose a collective translation of an individual performance entitled Ospitare / lavoro in divenire made by dancer Cinzia Delorenzi two years ago. We will engage a diverse small group of teachers, educators, translators, and artists (around twelve professionals) in two workshops:
– one in June 2021 focussed on the immunitary system/Coexistence,
– one in the autumn focussed on Hosting others.
The workshops will take place outdoors in a public green area in Milan. The source text within this will be a poetic text by Antonella Anedda, Notti di pace occidentale (Donzelli Editore, Roma 1999); a book that questions the destinies of our world starting from memory of the bloody history of the West.

We will invite the participants to draw on multiple languages and media, their professional experience, personal migratory background also within Italy, and other forms of ‘otherness’ by activating them to research in between the two sessions starting from listening to the words that resonate through their bodies. The outcome will be an expressive action, with stories and creative writing, that will be documented with pictures and a video.
