In an Act of Weaving is for weaving enthusiasts, dance artists and anyone who wants to feel in companionship again. An initiative that is both close and far away, to keep in touch but also create new paths, a platform to ́hold the thread ́ together again. A colourful umbrella that began with a festival with dance performances, installations, video works, workshops and choreographic interventions that then continued with Podcasts and a Book publication.
This book is a reflection, a thread, a collage, a trace of artistic processes and everything in between. It aims to give the reader the space to wander, to associate, to wonder, to forget one self and come back in different shapes. To get alternative access points to the works of the artists that participated in the festival. Not a map, but rather a compass to navigate the ‘ocean’ of Choreography and Performing Arts with, when one wants and is ready to travel.
It is also a gentle reminder that we are connected, inextricably and in deeply-rooted ways which exceed linear understanding. And that art has an undeniable role in grasping those sensibilities and can allow us to ‘weave’ through the unknown with hope.
This book is dedicated to companionship and dance.
