Organization Name: OHT | Office for a Human Theatre

Type: Calls & Submissions

Fee: Free


From 15 to 27 June, Little Fun Palace is back as a Nomadic School questioning how space produces reality. Aiming to experiment possibilities of learning and sharing-knowledge around Performing Arts. The Nomadic School considers space and landscape as aesthetic territories that have political implications without using the words of politics. It problematizes the Performing Arts by interacting with other disciplines such as Natural Sciences, Architecture and Anthropology. Through workshops, experiments, walks, meetings and micro-performances, participants will be encouraged to reconsider their centrality and periphery within a shared space such as the stage.

Little Fun Palace Nomadic School takes place at 1.900 m above sea level. This year the caravan will be in Val di Non, in the Adamello Brenta Nature Park. Taking place in the middle of the Alpine landscape, life and study will not be separated and the participants will camp at Malga Termoncello; most activities as well as meals will be organised in the open air.

The Open Call is addressed to anyone interested in the production and perception of space. People from disciplines such as theatre, dance, architecture, geography, anthropology, philosophy, natural sciences, literature, music, visual arts and design can participate. 12 participants will be selected and they will have guaranteed board and lodging for the entire period. Knowledge of English language is required.

The selected participants will share the Nomadic School with some mentors who, respecting their practices, will tackle the role of space and how it produces reality. Mentors are:
+ Gabriella Mastrangelo (spatial designer – ex Nomadic)
+ Stina Fors (performance artist, drummer and vocalist)
+ Iris Raffetseder (dramaturg, Wiener Festwochen)
+ Rosario Talevi (architect and curator at the Floating University in Berlin)
+ Filippo Andreatta (artist and curator)
+ Sarah Messerschmidt (researcher – ex Nomadic)
+ Elisabetta Filosi (naturalist, MUSE – Science Museum)
+ Elisa Zuppini (choreographer and dancer)
