About the workshop:
Participants will be actively involved in the collective creative process led by Italian artists. The focus within the workshop will be on experimenting with the communicative potential of contemporary art languages. The end result will be an original interactive artistic performance, which will allow those attending the event (AILYAK PARADE), in a gentle and natural way, to turn from passive observers to direct participants.
The performance, created within the framework of the workshop and carried out as part of the AILYAK PARADE on May 4, will be based on working with a large number of wooden sticks (3 m high), painted in different colors and driven by the 40 participants, so to form different "shapes and stars". At the end of the parade they will form - with the help of viewers - a colorful space installation that transforms the square around the fountain into an art zone, a place for immediate contact with art and fun for everyone. Once the "job" is done, everybody will be able to explore the installation, crawling underneath it, jumping between the sticks or skipping over them ...
