Project by Alessandro Carboni
Always Becoming is a nomadic platform of research reflecting on the body by combining, performative practices, embodiment processes, body mapping of urban space, cartography and experimental geography. Conceived as a collaborative working platform, the project is founded on the interdependence between science, practice and production. Performers, artists and theorists share research materials, thoughts, ideas to work around the body as vector, as a tool and not a condition, to analyze the environment and the urban space. Time and space will be approached from a variety of viewpoints; artistic, political, social. The research period is envisioned to be oscillating between moments of urban explorations, performances, workshops, rehearsal, informal presentations and longer outdoor practice sessions. Always Becoming# took place already in several cities such as Aarhus, Malmo, Bologna, Copenhagen and Hong Kong.
