Talking heArts
Also available in: English | Hungarian | Italian

Talking heArts is a youth initiative funded by the Youth in Action programme of the European Union and coordinated by Subjective Values Foundation (Budapest, Hungary) in partnership with Associazione culturale Fabbrica Europa (Firenze, Italy), EuroEst Foundation (Bucharest, Romania) and University of Barcelona - LMI (Spain). It brings together 4 groups of young music, media and dance artists from 4 European countries with a diversity of cultural roots, to promote creative European collaboration and social inclusion. Encouraging young people to develop a common vision of a future Europe of cultural diversity as well as concrete artistic, social, intercultural and entrepreneurship skill, talking hearts is designed and organised by young people who met and worked together in various projects promoted by the ROOTS & ROUTES International network.


Why Talking heArts? Artists can express themselves in the most various languages and by the most various means, but art speaks one language: so this project wants to focus on the awareness of the creative process, on the teamwork between the different participating young artists while creating/working but also on stage, and on the common, shared message to deliver to the audience. Each participant or small group, representing one kind of art, has to establish ways to interact with others. It can be codes/hand signs, sensors with some programming, defined space on stage, etc. The final exercise will be to combine them in an improvisation-based show. Through this process we believe (we are convinced) that one can improve his/her own art but also his/her understanding of others (tolerance, etc.), and put positive energy in a participative creative process.
 
Talking heArts mixes visuals, music and movement. The focus and the main challenge is to strongly inter-connect visuals to the performing activities (more common for dancers and musicians), to initiate all the participants to self-expression in performing arts. In other words, each of the participants should experience the feeling of performing as a jazz man on stage.

From May 2 to 5 we had our first creative residency and the first show - actually the preview-performance - in the frame of the 19th edition of Fabbrica Europa Festival in Florence. In this interdisciplinary project every participant was involved to create this first step of our improvisation-based show on cultural diversity, urban environment and visions of a future Europe. Using the artistic materials created by the national groups before and during the residency we started to develop a common artistic language, the codes and signs for improvise on stage.

During these days at youth and music centre Sonoria by the public library BiblioteCaNova, we had a possibility to develop the show and to have an rehearsal opened to the youngsters and locals (4th May). The show was presented on the next day at Le Murate, in collaboration with Caffè Letterario. The lovely courtyard where the café is situated was a prison before but now includes a beautiful café, galeries and officies. It was a pleasure for us and luckily we had a big audience. The first part of the show, which was based mostly on a choreography which involved plastic textiles gave the atmosphere for the whole performance which was finally one hour long. We skipped some elements of the structure what we made before but we will increase them for the final performances that will be presented in August in Budapest in the frame of Sziget Festival, and in autumn in Bucharest.
