MADE OF WALKING DELPHI - WEBS WAVES WAYS - program online
Made of walking Delphi is a summer school and collaborative-participative event about walking practices, within the 11th Animart Experiential Arts School, Festival and Forum of Contemporary Creativity in Delphi.
This second edition in Delphi will take place from 10 July to 23 July 2017 in the town of Delphi and its surrounding villages, the archeological sites and the splendid ancient Delphi - Kirra landscape with 40 walking artists - researchers from all over the world.
Made of Walking Delphi 2017 focuses on outdoors movement practices and new technology / live electronics, inviting to new ways of co-operation in sound and movement while connected as (micro- or macro-) walking "webs" of people, focusing on flow and movement in the environment.
Evolving the act of walking in sound waves and webs is our conceptual and artistic proposal of Made of Walking in Delphi, focusing on ways of unfolding steps that restore a sound score of the dialogue between humans and the ground. In a broader sense, this rhythmical duet intends an ecologic ‘sculpture’ of the earth through various walking webs. In order to create an orphic mapping of these “erratic” places and spaces, agents of walk-thinking and walking-arts are invited to create new fields of promenadology, centered around World Listening - 18th of July with topic "Listening to the ground".
MAIN FEATURED ARTIST
Main featured artist is sound artist and composer Ros Bandt (Australia), engaging with the participants of Made of Walking in a collaboration of making a giant illuminated people spider aeolian harp which can be played and moved around by walkers at night, connected with strings. A new sound composition will be played with attached portable speaker sound elements by composer Jon Drummond (Australia). The keynote workshop involves the creation of a "human harp", a group of movement artists - walkers connected with each other and Ros Bandt, playing the strings that connect them in their walking trajectory, resonating with the ground and the landscape. The performance will afterwards travel through Europe, from South to North. As a group the participants will perform from a graphic walking score, accompanied by stellar electronic sounds..
17 - 23 July 2017
