Alessandro Carboni: Always Becoming#Hong Kong

Videotage, Unit 13, Cattle Depot Artist Village, 63 Ma Tau Kok Road, To Kwa Wan, Hong Kong

Alessandro Carboni presents a further step of Always Becoming project in Hong Kong. The project is a nomadic platform of research reflecting on the body by combining performative practices, embodiment processes, 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, Copenhagen.

The project is a production by Progressive Archive, with the support of Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC); Videotage: Fuse Artist-in-residence Programme; Italian Culture Institute of Hong Kong; School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong.

WORKSHOP
EM: tools urban practice and performance practice
with Alessandro Carboni
04-18-25.02.2016
7:00pm to 10:00pm @ School of Creative Media

EM is a method of urban mapping and performance practice created by Alessandro Carboni that uses the body as device to capture and extract urban events an to map to what happens in a place in its geometrical and temporal extension. The method allows to deal with those events and embody, reconfigure them with a choreographic thinking. The workshop provides practical and theoretical activities in studio and outdoors. info: acarboni.promo@gmail.com
