What is the use of being a turtle? Does it make sense to carry out an action that was already an artwork done by an artist? What is the distinction we can make between a disguise and a tool that helps us reach a new state of mind? What happens when masks stop being masks and become more real than reality?

Perhaps Being a turtle means: not philosophising space/time for a while and living time from another perspective, slowing down the body, moving with the wind and de-conceptualizing thought. Hosted by Eduardo Navarro, this workshop seeks to transform our senses through movement and aims to facilitate renewed kinships towards nonhuman modes of being in order to have a new perspective and understanding of our world.

Please bring your own shell.
