In this workshop, we will explore a perceptive and sensitive approach to engage the body in a playful manner and encourage interaction through gestures, creative expression, and the creation of visual compositions. We will collectively and individually explore the diverse possibilities of public space. Drawing inspiration from the nature of being and the experiences of children in public spaces, we strongly believe in the importance of generating meaningful artistic encounters and promoting participation.


Our approach is rooted in the practice of drifting, observing and immersing ourselves in the dynamics of urban life. Through this, we seek to create a poetic experience where encounters with children inform and shape our creative process. As we intervene in the spaces, our bodies will transform them through imagination, creating an invisible geography that stems from memories and emotions. We will incorporate elements of surprise, provocation, and contemplation, aiming for an unconscious interpretation of the spaces, as suggested by the Theory of Drift.
