OBJECTIVE

To offer amateur and professional artists the experience of generating forms with bamboo and the possibilities of interaction between body and bamboo in the composition of the scene. The game of forms will create ephemeral objects/scenographies with which the participants will explore poetic body interactions. They will be stimulated to transpose their techniques and knowledge of the scenic game to the bamboo forms, with the possibility of finding new approaches to them.


 

PEDAGOGICAL COORDINATION

Poema Mühlenberg, co-founder and director of Cia Nós No Bambu
 

TARGET PUBLIC

Adult, free for anyone interested in exploring the creative possibilities of the game of shapes for the scene.

PLACES 20 students (maximum) for classes with one teacher. With two teachers the amount may vary.

˝The shapes speak to us in thought, suggest movements, configure bodily actions, so that we get involved with them. [...] The forms should ˝speak˝ with each other. To do this you have to play with them.˝

 

(MOREIRA; RIPPER, 2014, p. 55)

Bamboo is a plant of the grass family, found in several countries of the globe. It is estimated that there are about 1100 species. This diversity is also expressed in the possibilities of use of the plant, both in the soil, in natura, and also harvested and transformed in objects, buildings, fabrics, paper, coal, food, works of art, etc.

In our times of ecological emergency, bamboo is an extremely propitious substitute material for sustainable use, because it generates low environmental impacts and even positive and regenerating environmental impacts for the ecosystem.

Thus, the workshop Bamboo World is an initiative to disseminate and popularize knowledge about this prodigal plant. It offers the opportunity, in post-industrial times, to bring people into contact with nature and with a natural material. It shows the possibility of creating with one's own hands and, in this sense, it is a desalination of the productive process.

The content of the workshop consists of four theoretical and practical modules, which can be dismembered, adapted to specific demands and carried out individually or in combination.
