“Luogo comune” is a two-week permanent workshop dedicated to choreographic and musical composition. It is also, and above all, an opportunity to share thoughts and experiences among artists.
In the last decades, art has become merely an economic good. Works of art must appeal to many people and produce income. Therefore, nowadays it is far more profitable for an artist to produce works of art that are similar to other successful ones rather than to develop their own original school of thought. As a consequence, the difference between artists and producers of spare-time consumer goods has become increasingly blurred.
SPAM! aims at contributing to opposing this trend by organizing an experimental workshop for choreography and composition of music for dance, with a focus on the organization of the means based on the creation of meaningful structures.
Even the most pleasant work of art cannot be meaningful unless it is crossed by a network of connections which link its parts together. A show is a speech that needs to deserve attention from the public. Therefore, it cannot have just one single subject. It needs to have something to tell and tell it in an original way.
“Luogo commune” is a two-week opportunity to reflect on this kind of problems under the guidance of a group of artists that care particularly for the meaning and structure of their works. They deal with different means (movement, direction, music and speech) and are going to share their work methodologies, so as to spur, in a new way, the creativity process of those taking part. This event is not just a discussion about contents, but about how the relations between the building blocks of a work of art can be the means to develop original poetics.

The workshop will begin every day at 10 am occupying the whole day.
Full attendance is mandatory.
