19 Dec Puppet workshop with Juliana Notari //
The body is matter, the body is drama, matter is drama. The relationships are endless. Thus begins this workshop that we can also call the research and creative process. Juliana Notari has very sensitively observed what the meeting points are, or better, the points of the intersection that make a puppet exist. Presence, body, movement, matter, life, death and utopia are some of them.
In 12 hours divided into two immersive days, the participants will go through crossings and crossroads in an exhausting way, leaving the body available to interact with the other, with the collective and with different types of matter until arriving at the form, in a puppet that is born of a bodily and intimate process.
WORKSHOP – LABORATORY IN IMAGES
She is a Brazilian artist and puppeteer. She has a fascination for the eyes and hands of people. She can look for hours and hours at the path that ants make on the walls of her house. She dedicates and dives deeply into the art of the puppet and its infinite possibilities of fusion and construction. From the option of the material’s choice, to the composition of the gestures to the minimum details, she goes through all the stages of the creation of a work.
She works for the diffusion of the contemporary puppet and has already moved around a little piece of the world to present her shows. In 2018 she completed 18 years as a puppeteer, toured Mexico, Argentina, Spain, Colombia, Latvia, France, Korea, Portugal, Czech Republic, Bolivia, Italy, Switzerland, among others. She is currently the manager of the Cultural Condominium in São Paulo, where she has a collective research workshop for the contemporary puppet, El Taller de la marionete libre, next to the Argentine puppeteer Matias Arce.
