EU PROJECT / Migrant Bodies / 11 July 2014 – Trieste


Trieste and the meaning of nowhere
«part Adriatic, part European, on a fold of the map» Jan Morris

On 11th July 2014, artists and partners of the EU-funded Migrant Bodies project stop in Trieste.

A project created in partnership between Comune di Bassano del Grappa (Italy), La Briqueterie – Centre de développement chorégraphique du Val de Marne (France), CircuitEst (Quebec), The Dance Centre (British Columbia) and HIPP The Croatian Institute for Dance and Movement (Croatia), Migrant Bodies uses artistic and cultural tools to open up a civil reflection on migrations and the cultural impact and differences they bring, seen as sources of values and richness for the whole European and Canadian societies.

The five international dance artists and mentor part of the project will meet with a number of local artists who will take them on a personal journey of discovery of what ‘border and identity’ means in a city that Welsh writer Jan Morris defines ‘part Adriatic, part European, on a fold of the map’. Subsequently, the five partners will introduce the project to the larger audience in a public encounter in the early afternoon just before taking the road towards Zagreb for a second residency period.
