  • Description


    We are Iana and Scarlett and for some months we have been living in a small town in the mountains of Abruzzo (Italy), surrounded by historical and naturalistic wonders. Me, Iana, I'm a university researcher finishing a PhD in dance anthropology and Practice As Research in Performance Art.
    I am deeply fascinated by the vegetal world and the wild herbs that grow in the various territories and, in fact, the place where I live is full of plant biodiversity. I would like to deepen this knowledge and develop artistic and educational projects on the history of natural landscapes and the curative uses of plants. This is the aime of the project, an itinerant and relational theatre that bring knowledge about local history and nature around here. I would like to host, for short periods, in the small but cozy house where I live in the heart of the village, volunteers with whom I can exchange knowledge about the world of botany and who are familiar with somatic practices and post-dramatic theatre. It could e great to collaborate in the theatre-projects, also, if you have experience in photography, video-editing and social media writing.

    The village and its surroundings offer nature and silence for various activities, including meditation. The village has a mini-market and a bar, 500 m from the house. There are no pubs and other meeting points except in the nearest town, 35 min. by car. There are bus connections, however, throughout the day, with other villages and with the city.
