(re)vuelta al patio (2023-24)
Centro Cultural Condeduque, Madrid
In its fourth edition, (re)vuelta al patio continues to investigate the place of childhood in cultural institutions through play. After being inspired by geometry as a methodology for free play, trying out feminist football, claiming the street as a space free of cars, freeing horses and zootropes, breaking boundaries by playing and discovering that the patio was once a forest, we continue to propose other forms of inhabit Condeduque.
(re)vuelta to the patio remains in the Central Patio of Condeduque during the warm months, and moves to the Multipurpose Room (Sala Polivalente) in the colder months. Both spaces will be meeting point, a place of welcome, an area of exploration and fun, so that families close to the Center and others less frequent can spend Saturday afternoon in community.
Each of the playing sessions is co-designed between hablarenarte’s team and an artist, educator or social group especially linked to playful practices. In this way, we seek to connect with creators, families, audiences and diverse groups, inviting them to imagine and manage an open cultural programming in which play, criticism and joy go hand in hand.
session 1: The patio makes noise / Noise is ours
October 28, 2023, 16:30-19:30h, CENTRAL PATIO
hablarenarte + Chico Trópico + Álvaro Valls
Starting from a sounding camping and a party lab, we produce music collectively. Using diverse instruments, as well as the materials in the patio and the nature that inhabits this space, we discover the sounds that surround us.
Additionally, Taiwanese comic artist Evergreen Yeh invites us to draw the sounds made by monsters. With the support of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Spain.
