NOBODY NOBODY NOBODY it’s ok not to be ok (Collective Experience)

A workshop led by Daniele Ninarello and Mariella Popolla

Teachers, auxiliary, technical and administrative staff


The group will be guided in a process of re-discovery and deconstruction of postures, movements, knowledge and abuses on the body and, at the same time, in the attempt to develop tools for reading society outside the culture of violence and exclusion.
Starting from specific activities, participants will be asked to express themselves on some issues, so that they can bare their thoughts in a protected space, and won’t choose socially acceptable reactions and opinions.
The objective is to lead the group to translate on, in, with the body the exchange that will take place during the debates, leaving room for conflict, protest, pain or liberation.
