Corps de Ville
An intergenerational project for European cities
Corps de Ville is a creation and reflection project on the city evolution and on our relation to our body through an intergenerational and cultural dialogue.
The project was supported by the Heliotropion company with the collaboration of many European partners from September 2012 to October 2013 through the cities of Paris, Turin and Krakow and in 2014 in Cagliari (with the development of the second part of the project).
Based of a collection of testimonies, the aim was to involve in the creation process two generations : elderlies who inhabited the city and young people who live in it.
This project aims to bring together different generations and to question the place of the body and of citizenship in the city, to bring awareness to the future urban environment and to develop cultural cooperation thanks to meeting, multidisciplinary workshops, public performances, films/documentaries and the setting of an interactive website.
The artistic team composed of a choreographer, videographer, musician / computer scien- tist and a director, has directed the memorial reactivation work with the gathering of texts, images and video sequences in order to structure the materials on which the project was developed.
The use of digital arts will conduct this dialogue in the present but will help to reconstruct the past through a virtual journey back in time thanks to flashbacks and will also help to imagine the future.
Basic artistic team:
Clotilde Tiradritti : conception, staging and choreography
Patrick Matoian : musical, digital and instrumental composition
Sissi Guoi : image creation, video and lights
With the participation in each city of a group of 10/12 young dancers and testimonials of several elderly people.
