CREATURES of FLESH & PAPER / double workshop
In December 2012, Trimukhi Platform invited a visual artist and an actress from Colombia to give a double workshop in the Santal village of Borotalpada. Nathali Buenaventura shared with the participants original drawing techniques and strategies while Paola Ospina leaded them to be as free with their body as if it would be a moving sculpture to be explored. This double workshop was held in the local primary school for 25 children from the Adivhasi area.
The installation in movement that resulted of the double workshop was then shared to the villagers in the night of 29th December 2012. This double workshop was organized by Trimukhi Platform thanks to the help received from the Ministry of Culture of Colombia, the Bogotá theatre group Teatro Occidente and from Borotalpada Primary School.
Nathali Buenaventura has a B.A in Plastic Arts and a M.A in Theatre and Living Arts from the National University of Colombia. She works in Bogotá with drawings, installations, body arts and writings. She is teaching at the National University of Colombia.
Paola Ospina has a B.A in Scenic Arts and a M.A in Theatre and Living Arts from the National University of Colombia. She works in Bogotá as actress and performer crossing scenic forms and disciplines. She is teaching theatre acting at the Federal District University Francisco José de Caldas (ASAB).
OTHER WORKSHOP IN BOROTALPADA VILLAGE
In December 2011, Trimukhi Platform invited the Mexican artist Alejandro Orozco to give a workshop on creative and experimental photography to 15 inhabitants of Borotalpada. In an intensive and creative environment, the participants walked through the basis of light behaviour, the components and difference between digital and analogue photography, the handling and operation of both devices. And, most important, they had a personal experience with images: ideas, colours, spaces, landscapes, stories, faces, etc.
