Nasca Lines. Ancestral Future

Date: June 22

Workshop leader: Laurin Leon

Workshop Abstract

Ancestrally. In the arid deserts of Peru, the life is staged regularly by the interaction of our people, the stark dryness of the area and the dramatic lack of rainfall inland. The mythological creatures and gods from a very particular cosmological view, have any interaction space, immersed in each of the daily activities of the various civilizations that have developed here.

The nature of the Germinal Space of communities, is entirely mental and symbolic, found in the giant dimensional representations throughout the desert of Nasca, Ocucaje, Palpa and Paracas, a genuine virtual alternative of such interaction possible way of performative actions residents, seasonal periodic events, dances and festive rituals strictly immaterial.

The mental space, only triggered in this feverish staging, whose trace lies in geometric and zoomorphic, anthropomorphic and indecipherable even reaching hundred meters and drawings have survived millennia. Representations made ​​possible occupation of this vast and inhospitable region. It made possible the adaptation of cultures that have evolved over centuries to incorporate all desire, human anguish and divine fervor, in the absence of food, water, counted cropland and social warlike and violent that the problematic scenario entails.

Cahuachi. The Theocratic Center of our region is a unique original sample which reached the realization of this germinal space. Combining these activities and incorporating processes generating Architectural Spaces and the peculiar ground technology developed to build each stage of assembly. Cahuachi escapes any preconceived formal condition. Its study and work on us today that elusive story. The materialization of the scene, our unique vision and meaning of life.

La Generación del Espacio

Ancestralmente. En los áridos desiertos de Perú, la vida se escenifica periódicamente mediante la interacción de nuestros habitantes, la agreste resequedad del territorio y la dramática ausencia de precipitaciones fluviales.  Los seres mitológicos y divinidades provenientes de una visión cosmológica bastante particular, hayan espacio en toda interacción, inmersos en cada una de las actividades cotidianas de las diversas civilizaciones que aquí se han desarrollado.

El espacio germinal de las comunidades, enteramente mental y simbólico, encontró en las gigantescas representaciones bidimensionales a todo lo largo del desierto de Nasca, Ocucaje, Palpa y Paracas, una genuina alternativa virtual de hacer posible dicha interacción a manera de acciones performativas de los habitantes, eventos periódicos estacionales, danzas y rituales festivos propiamente inmateriales.

El espacio mental, únicamente desencadenado, en esta febril puesta en escena, cuya huella yace en dibujos geométricos y de representaciones zoomorfas, antropomorfas aun indescifrables y que alcanzan los cien metros y que han sobrevivido milenios, hizo posible ocupación de esta vasta e inhóspita región. Hizo posible la adaptación de culturas que evolucionaron a los largo de siglos incorporando todo deseo, angustia humana y fervor divino, ante la ausencia de alimentos, agua, contadas áreas de cultivo y el escenario belico social y violento que dicha problemática conlleva.

Cahuachi, el centro teocrático de nuestra región es una única muestra original que llegó a alcanzar la materialización de este espacio germinal. Combinando e incorporando estas actividades a los procesos arquitectónicos generadores del espacio y a la peculiar tecnología en tierra, desarrollada al construir cada etapa de su conjunto.  Cahuachi escapa de toda condición formal preconcebida. Su estudio y trabajo nos acerca hoy a esa historia esquiva. La materialización de la escena, de nuestra peculiar visión y significado de la vida.

International Workshops for students and young professionals

Prague Quadrennial 2015 SpaceLab workshops will once again create opportunities for more than 1500 students and young professionals to meet directly with top professionals in the performance design field. Workshops will take place in June 18-28, 2015 in Prague.

Working with the Quadrennial theme SharedSpace: Music Weather Politics, the workshops will provide opportunities to explore theatre as a place where living people meet and create certain social relationships (politics), a living place of accident and ephemeral (weather), and of course the place of aesthetics and composition (music).

SpaceLab 2015 will include opportunities to work with artists like theatre maker Philippe Quesne (FR), theatre designer Dominic Huber (CH), theatre director Kirsten Dehlholm (DK), theatre designer Aedín Cosgrove (IE), installation artist Joanna Rajkowska (PL), artist Benjamin Verdonck (BE), designer Doris Dziersk (GE) and artist Kate McIntosh (NZ/BE). There will also be a special workshop – a critical seminar with American critic Arnold Aronson.

The workshops include “making score for scenographic installation”, costume for dance, costume and text, wig making, etc. As well as workshops in/with other fields, materials, technologies and strategies that are not usually taught at scenography departments and that normally do not qualify as one of the usual theatre design fields – like immersive theatre, wearable technology, architecture of everyday objects, etc. Most of the workshops disregard the basic division of fields of expertise (stage, costume, lighting, and sound design): so look for the workshops that are marked as other in our list.
