San Giovanni water with Matteo Politi and Muriel Hendrichs
"San Giovanni is a magical time to get to know and approach plants, which reach the peak of their healing powers. We celebrate them with the collection of flowers, leaving them to macerate in spring water for the whole night. The following morning there will be a ritual bath."
The workshop will give life to different moments of knowledge and creativity with herbs. The times will be communicated on a blackboard at the entrance to the space.

SAMBA DE CÔCO
Led by Renata Rosa
Internship cost 20.- p.p. (minimum 10 participants)
His singing, his rhythm, his basic instruments, his percussive dance with his feet - The relationship between each of these elements. The samba de côco comes from the process of building houses in wood and clay in rural areas. When a house was built, the future owner invited the whole village to participate in the work. Once the house was finished, the earth was sprinkled with clay and a Coco singer was called.
When he sang, the others responded by dancing on the clay until the ground became flat and smooth. This is how the floors of the houses were built. From this practice were born the "trupés" of the Samba de Côco, the percussion of the steps whose function was - as well as playful - a work tool.
Nowadays, the Samba de Côco is a rural entertainment in the states of Sergipe, Alagoas, Pernambuco and Paraíba, widely practiced in the time of St. John or during the commemorations of the cassava harvest or the manufacture of flour in the mills.
From the magical land of Australia, the native people have offered mankind a wind instrument that is unmatched, in terms of playing technique, in any other culture. Horns of various lengths are found in various parts of the world (here we have the alphorn) but precisely each of them is played like a horn. The didgeridoo (written in different ways) has a very simple execution technique given by putting the lips in vibration and through them creating a whole series of particular sound effects. Added to this is the use of the air held in the mouth, the thrust of the diaphragm and the circular breathing technique which allows you to play continuously by taking air from the nose while the sound continues to be produced from the mouth.
In this laboratory you will be able to experiment with the emission of the first sounds, the first sound modulations and if you are already familiar with the instrument we can work on the steps towards circular breathing or refine what you can already play. Some bamboo didgeridoos from Ticino and some eucalyptus were made available for the workshop.
