29 June - 8 July 2018

the Milena principle - Dance Gate Lefkosia in collaboration with Nicosia University - Fine Arts, Neapoli University Paphos - School of Architecture and Talking Walking / The Museum of Walking London.
Save the dates!

Made of Walking (IV) happens this year in the frame of Sites embodied / Nature Embodied 2018, a continuation of the project Sites Embodied Cyprus during Pafos2017, European Capital of Culture.
Locations are the villages of Neon Chorio and Smigies in the Akamas Peninsula, a fragile nature reserve in the North of Cyprus. 

Made of Walking is a yearly international peer to peer gathering dedicated to walking arts and sound arts, that is organized in a rural landscape of importance and or/related to pilgrimage, in a collaboration with local cultural and academical institutions, involving local citizens.  
Previous editions took place in Delphi - Greece (I-II), La Romieu - France (III) in 2016 and 2017 and brought together 80 walking artists and researchers from all over the world.

Theme of Made of Walking this year is Plant(e)scape, relating to human motion and emotion in a plenary botanical background, and combining walking as a creative instrument with two emergent sciences: Spaziergangwissenschaft (promenadology) and Critical Plant Studies (Vegetal Philosophy:  Plant-Thinking). Promenadology is  a "tool" to explore our everyday living environment, as well as for delivery of content and knowledge, in combination with Critical Plant Studies, considering the plants as living entities with their own consciousness, as thinking, sentient beings, not mere objects to be studied and classified; they are also agents in the production of meaning.  Following the logic of a symbiotic being in the world, (shared by humans, animals and plants), where the anthropomorphic centrality is lost, we aim to recover a vegetal point of view and creating new ecological meanings that may deepen symbolic and aesthetic levels. 

The gathering will feature live performance works, workshops, lectures, round tables with established and emerging performance artists, walking artists and with researchers. 
Live performances by the participating artists and students:  to be held in landscape / countryside throughout the event with the participation of the general public/local residents. 
Workshops by the artists that will lead to live performances:  for general public and local residents along workshops for students of various disciplines of the institutes involved
Public talks, presentations and conferences, open to anyone interested.          
An open an international digital platform during and after the event, extending the gathering on a worldwide level, including streaming and live podcasts of the actions and talks to the broad network of Made of Walking and Talking Walking / Museum of Walking. 

An open call for participants will be published in February.
