Oltrarno Atelier Festival

CANGO 10.10.2010/14.11.2010

 The fifth edition of the festival continues to make the Florentine Oltrarno an international workshop – unique in its kind – of artistic experiences, engrossing practices, premier visions, site-specific creations. The Festival Oltrarno Atelier,, which grew out of the CANGO Cantieri Goldonetta to develop its qualities in a concentrated and intense event, each year adds greater depth to its innovative visions and experiences in contemporary idioms in the unique and special Oltrarno territory, embracing a broad artistic perspective. In fact, in this encounter there is fresh potential for creativity and artistic achievement, subverting the boundaries between artist and audience, action and vision, work places and places of entertainment.

Oltrarno Atelier Festival 2009

CANGO 17.6.2009/19.6.2010

Oltrarno Atelier is completely dedicated to the theme of transmission of the gesture, intended as encounter, creation and vision but also as an opportunity for reflection on a renewed geography of the territory.

Today the capacity to conceive and articulate a project regarding the city and the identity of a place springs from an analysis of Florence’s Oltrarno neighborhood and the territory around Cango.

 

The festival proposes a well-defined visualization of the entire range of projects by the Academy of the Art of the Gesture, created in 2007 by Virgilio Sieni, and the array of groups born in the past two years. It is an exploration of the transmission of practices to children, to the elderly, to blind youngsters and to artists, in an attempt to identify the meaning of the contemporary by searching for roots in the territory.

Founded in 1959 by a group of scholars in the humanities, anthropology, sociology, ethnology and mass-media studies, the Festival dei Popoli, a not-for-profit organization, has been active for over fifty years in the promotion and study of social documentary cinema.

The association works primarily to organize Italy’s leading International Documentary Film Festival in Florence. From 2008 to 2010 it has also held an edition in New York (NYDFF - New York Documentary Fim Festival). The Institute has created a vast network of collaborations for the diffusion of documentary culture in Italy and abroad.

Simultaneously, the Festival dei Popoli continues to conserve and digitalize its own Archives (which contains over 16,000 titles, from video to film) and make strides in film training, organizing courses and workshops for documentary filmmakers.

The project Cerbiatti del nostro futuro (Fawns of our Future) is inscribed within itineraries of transmission and creation of the Accademia sull’arte del gesto founded in 2007 by Virgilio Sieni. The Cerbiatti del nostro futuro project was created in 2011 to create and develop a repertory of contemporary dance aimed at younger dancers between 10 and 13 years old. The original choreography was created by Virgilio Sieni and overseen in collaboration with a team of assistants and the participation of artists, architects, art historians, philosophers, anthropologists, and geographers. The basic intention is to set up a programme of direct transmission for children, thus creating a way to approach the creation in various stages. The project set itself the objective of bringing together kids from various schools and places of origin through the practice of dance. The active participation of local dance schools responds to the intention of sparking further artistic and dialogue-related possibilities as part of a shared viewing of the programmes. The project aims to promote the development of a penetrating look at the processes of contemporary dance by involving families, kids, teenagers, and the adult public.

Early One Morning

Museo Marino Marini 17.11.2012/08.3.2014

a more than year long project designed by Alberto Salvadori, artistic director of the Museo Marino Marini.

 

EARLY ONE MORNING, a title taken from a work by Anthony Caro from 1962, is a programme of exhibitions and events designed for the Museum, premiering for the first time in Italy. It is a "unicum" consisting of distinct parts in which, to quote Rosalind Krauss, "the consistency of a configuration has distinct elements that are juxtaposed, closely interconnected on a flat surface to produce meaning."

The project analyses, probes, and investigates different working methods, from the historical recognition and reactivation of sculptures thanks to interaction with the public, to the research carried out by young Italian and international artists, up to the use of video as a tool for investigation and relationship between people, objects and architecture.

Osservatorio sull’Architettura

Fondazione Targetti 01.1.2004/30.10.2014

The Osservatorio sull’Architettura was established as a series of meetings for monitoring, surveying and analysing the processes connected to the intricacies of contemporary architecture and the related complex urban phenomena. The relationship between the client and the architect, the role of utopia in the history of architecture, the relationship between art and architecture, architecture as a language are some of the topics that have been discussed during the series of meetings that have been carried out since 2004 under the direction of the architect Pino Brugellis. Since 2004, the Osservatorio sull’Architettura has invited a variety of different people such as Norman Foster, Yona Friedman, Thom Mayne, Peter Eisenman, Bernard Tschumi, Vito Acconci, Greg Lynn and Álvaro Siza. And, also Dennis Frenchman, Cecil Balmond, Sergio Fajardo, Diller and Scofidio… Despite the evident differences between these people, they are all united by the fact of being absolute protagonists of their time, but also “cultivators of ideas”, interpreters of a discipline that reflects society and its continuous transformations.

CANGO 29.11.2014/09.3.2014

 

The Democracy of the Body, a project by Virgilio Sieni, will be held in Florence from November 2013 through March 2014.
Performances, talks, visions and practices: a journey to the heart of gesture, dance and the arts.

Through a series of performances, meetings, residencies and practices, The Democracy of the Body tackles the theme of the body as a channel for communication and suspension. 150 days at the heart of gesture and dance: a journey that unfolds to participants as a practice in which they can share an openness towards the other arts.
For the first time, Virgilio Sieni will bring four of the Company's productions and three specific projects by the Academy for the Art of Gesture to Cango, aiming to construct a single, organic vision.
The Democracy of Body seeks to show the audience pathways of vision designed as a journey in search of gesture, an open workshop developing a triptych of relationships and resonance between Florence, Marseille and Riga.

The project for Marseille-Provence, 2013 European Capital of Culture involved the participation of over 160 performers from the Academy for the Art of Gesture, hailing from throughout the Mediterranean area: women and men of all ages took centre stage in three Agorà set in three just as symbolic places in the city of Marseille. In addition, the Compagnia Virgilio Sieni and the Academy for the Art of Gesture will create a performance for Riga, the 2014 European Capital of Culture, in which the city choirs will take part.
In thus refining detail towards the beauty of the person, The Democracy of the Body presents itself not so much as a festival, but rather as a space for examination, a space for the eyes, relegating to vision the first step towards listening to the body.

The Democracy of the Body will also present three events involving directors of contemporary art centres, who will give a talk about the artist's vital space as well as their own projects.

50 Days 2014

Since 2007, "50 Days" has brought a season of high-quality film to the capital of Tuscany.
The playbill is composed of ten international festivals taking place in Florence: festivals that are bound together in a close, prolific cooperation through a single calendar, a single, shared location, and the support of the staff from the Cinema Section of Fondazione Sistema Toscana . Each year, 50 Days highlights a particular theme, which it emphasises so as to encourage extensive reflection, starting with the films in its programme. This year the festival is dedicated to the "future", to young people depicted on the big screen and to "youthful" cinema created by those who keep experimenting - at any age - with the language of the seventh art.
50 Days will open on 29 October with the Festival dei Popoli International Documentary Film Festival, now in its 55th year.

FABBRICA EUROPA XXII EDIZIONE

FABBRICA EUROPA XXII EDIZIONE

Fabbrica Europa 07.5.2015/03.7.2015

Fabbrica Europa XXII has been an immersion in a multitude of creative universes, both physical and cultural: dance, theatre and music expressing unconventional states of the contemporary, tracing simultaneous project lines through innovative proposals enabling a polyphony of voices to emerge. Not an accumulation of signs, but the need to implant relations that give rise to new meanings.
Fabbrica Europa has always worked to build bridges of knowledge and occasions for cultural awareness, finding possible itineraries, unusual trajectories and keeping alive the memory of rituals past and present. Memory that urges on a reactivation of a collective commitment of observation, perception, gesture. Towards a future with open horizons.
At the center of the dance program, a focus on Asian production, important European companies, well-known and emerging artists of the international and national landscape, which have represented a unique opportunity for a journey across performative and choreographic languages  beyond every border.

The theatre section has included shows focused on a polyphony of artistic voices mixing words and music, vocal and dramatic research, historical and social issues.
The music proposals of the XXII edition have combined the need of making music to  socio-political matters, in a path where the presence of historical protagonists was intertwined with the most interesting innovations of the current scene.
