IV Meeting with Nel Amaro

4th to 17th may 2015

Program of activities organized within the framework of RASPA Asturian Network of Performance and Action by the Atenéu Nel Amaro

This project was born with an objective of continuity over time around the dissemination, exchange of experiences and development of performance and action art as a means of expanding our personal limits and communication with the society in which we live. The IV Meeting with Nel Amaro is part of theSCRATCHAsturian Network of Performance and Action, an initiative through which LABoral wishes to involve and lead the community of performance artists and managers in Asturias and, thus, collaborate in the development and promotion of the theory and practice of performance.

The basis of the project is the week-long residency in the small Asturian town of Columbiel.lo, located near Pola de Lena. During the residency, a group of artists from different geographical and vital backgrounds coexist with the idea of ​​sharing the process of creation and collective work. This edition is based on the proposal of the artist Denys Blacker in relation to the research of the Biologist Rupert Sheldrake (United Kingdom , 1942) and his theory of Morphic Fields.
