Workshop – from 60 years old
Limited registrations in order of registration from 2:00 pm on 8/25, at the link: bit.ly/ParkouridososeaCidade
Reflecting on the relationship of the elderly with public spaces, the experience guided by the artists Jerônimo Bittencourt and Danielli Mendes investigates the possibilities of interaction of the participants with their rhythms and with the city.
The power of the bodies is stimulated by the rapprochement with the structures, including simple and typical procedures of the French parkour practice, such as pressing the concrete and moving on benches and tables.
The participants integrate into the environment and rediscover autonomy, walking through the space without haste. Along the way, the architectural structures cease to be obstacles and become geometric forms (full of soul and poetry) that make up the scenario through which dance and life flow.
