To create spaces in Lehenak where patients can exchange and self-organise.
Coletivo Qualquer, comprising Ibon Salvador (Euskadi) and Luciana Chieregati (Brazil), both choreographers and dancers. Their work is mainly focused on creating dance pieces and promoting possible contexts for collaborative artistic creation and exchange. They have recently been dedicated to experimenting with specific choreographic tools developed in contexts of creation and collaboration, with which they intend to work on in their different processes. “Máquinas de Colaboración” (Collaborative Machines) is the name of this proto-methodology, which has gathered together input from various creators, such as Idoia Zabaleta and Victoria Pérez Royo, as well as from their experiences with the methodology of real time composition developed by João Fiadeiro and Claudia Dias. They live and work in Bilbao.
Coletivo Qualquer aims to begin with a dynamic activity entitled “Despliegue” (Deployment), which uses the challenge as its starting point by generating a spectrum of possibility from it. Salvador and Chieregati will then discuss with the group which path or paths they are interested in following in order to determine the criteria to be used for choosing the direction to take. After this, they will conduct another dynamic activity entitled “Materialización” (Materialisation), a specific way to put an idea into practice: from Idealisation to Materialisation, from thought to action.
The project was tackled by using choreography methodologies as a basis. First, a methodology was used to reveal and take a step back from the problem, using fiction to step back from the challenge. This helped to identify work areas and block zones. These zones were later viewed to see in which areas the group was most involved. By using a reverse methodology, they on this occasion managed to work for what was asked of the group members so that they could suggest four projects. Two of these were chosen focusing on generating alternative spaces for the patients that have to be approved by higher authorities.
