Remember the days when you picked up a paint brush and thought to yourself, « No way I’m ever going to finish this job! »? And then 50 or 60 years later you realized you’d not only finished it, but lived to paint another house, dig another hole, write another book, paint another picture, design another bag, eat another snail…? Seems to be the nature of the beast that we go on and on until we can’t go on any longer. Some of us wait until the lights dim and finally go out on their own; others turn out the lights themselves, for one reason or another. For them, mostly, we’ll never fully know the « Why? » Either way, the loss is both damaging and mesmerizing to those who remain behind. Our loss is their loss — the loss of Them… They who gave so much, or who sometimes took so much, but who nevertheless will be remembered. For our part, we hope you’ll stick around. There’s more to come.

 

As always, we hope you’ll enjoy this issue of Ragazine, which includes a few new features designed to help you navigate the pub and your world a little more easily. 

 

Thanks for reading,

Our work has drawn readers and contributors from around the world, helping us (you know, the People of Planet Earth) understand one another a bit better, while we take pleasure and learn from what they’ve shared: fiction, poetry, art, music, commentary, opinion, humor, satire, ethnographies, legal insights, photography, interviews, reviews, and more. Feel free to let us know how we’re doing — what you’d like to see more (or less) of, what you believe we should be paying attention to that we are missing, or missing out on.

 

Meanwhile, when you go out of the house tomorrow to work or school or play, take another route, another path, even if it means just going around the block in a different direction. See your world in another way… let us know what you discover.

WRITING RESIDENCY
WATCH THE VIDEO REPORTS

 

Jorge Andrade and José Capela, from Portuguese theatre company mala voadora, and Spanish author Pablo Gisbert took part of the Writing Residency of the Manual at L’arboreto Teatro Dimora.

The residency included a meeting with the community of Mondaino, gathering locals from different generations, who shared their experiences and thoughts about the project-related topics.

According to José Capela, “The Manual does not wrap with absolute accuracy the forthcoming performances. It includes instructions which are open to interpretation. We wanted the Manual to be flexible enough so that each performance is able to have its own identity.”

After the Writing Residency, L’arboreto – Teatro Dimora will host the first public reading of the text of the Manual in December 2017. That text will generate four different performances in Patras, Alcobaça, Montijo and Pergine in 2018. Local communities will participate in artistic residencies and star in those performances.

International Seminar debates work and happiness

in Italy’s Pergine Spettacolo Aperto festival

 

The International Seminar on Work and Happiness will be held during the Pergine Spettacolo Aperto festival (Italy) on July 14 and 15 2017.

 

The 2-day event is the first public activity organised in the framework of the project A MANUAL ON WORK AND HAPPINESS, which is being implemented with the support of the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.

Featuring an International conference-talk show entitled « Happiness calling », performances, a film screening, workshops and « lazyshops », the International Seminar will explore the interaction between equal opportunities, happiness, work, laziness and the artistic creation. The programme will see the participation of scholars, curators and artists, showing the need to rethink the relationship between work and happiness from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Among the participants are British philosopher Nina Power and Helen Hester, Spanish architect Santiago Cirugeda, Greek filmmaker Apostolos Karakasis and Italian researcher Riccarda Zezza.

Full programme is available for download here:
http://amanualonworkandhappiness.eu/international-seminar/programme

 

INTERACTING WITH AUDIENCES

Local and international audiences are invited to join the debate by answering the following question:

Do you believe we can reach happiness through work or through laziness? Tell us why!

Locals can pick up a bulletin in the several venues of the festival, write down their opinion and cast their vote in one of the two ballots (work or happiness) which are placed at the festival’s box office centre, Sala Maier (Piazza Serra 14, Pergine).

Online participation is also encouraged. People can share their opinion at the Get Involved section of the project’s digital platform or, alternatively send their comments to the following email: manual@amanualonworkandhappiness.eu.

Both printed and online contributions will nourish the debate of the HAPPINESS CALLING talk-show, which will be held on July 14 at 9pm (Italian time).

The event will be live streamed here and in the facebook of the A MANUAL ON WORK AND HAPPINESS.

FOUR PROJECTS SELECTED
FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR

 

 

Four projects – and not two, as initially planned – have been selected for the International Seminar on Work and Happiness following the call for workshops and lazyshops launched early March.

 

Two months – and many proposals – later curators Carla Esperanza Tommasini (Pergine Spettacolo Aperto) and José Capela (mala voadora) have chosen a list of projects including The Laboratory of doing Nothing by Christina Schults, Worker’s Club by Einat Tuchman/Incompany, Field Work 2 by Vanja Babic and Bojan Mucko and Laissez Faire by Marta Melucci and Francesca Telli/Schuko Company.

 

The origin of all evil in the world is work. This is the principle upon which German-born Barcelona-based performer Christina Schults built her The Laboratory of doing Nothing – a collaborative artistic piece in the form of an experimental workshop which investigates the root of all misery on the world.

 

Brussels’ collective Incompany will present Worker’s Club, a workshop which intends to explore the gap between our values and what we actually do at work – thus redefining values and investigating the desire for change. Incompany is a collaborative project which brings together Einat Tuchman, Heike Langsdorph and Nicolas Galeazzi.

 

Vanja Babic and Bojan Mucko, from Croatia, will present Field Work 2, a project exploring physical separations and the occupation of the public space which looks upon work as a social sculpture.

 

Finally, Marta Melucci and Francesca Telli from Italy’s Schuko Company will come up with Laissez Faire, a lazyshop based on the idea of passivity, a radical physical condition in which participants will be assisted on their elementary actions.

 

The full programme of the International Seminar will be unveiled in June. The event will be held on July 14 and 15 during the Pergine Spettacolo Aperto performing arts festival.
