CRiSAP member Ximena Alarcón has been awarded a place on the Sristhi Interim artistic residency at the Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore, India, from Nov 23rd to Dec 19th.
Ximena will work with students from Sristhi inviting them to listen to dislocation in Bangalore as a creative force to stimulate new narratives and statements of being and place. By using Deep Listening practice and through a creative collaborative process students will be invited to reflect on connections to the self, to others and to the environment, and to engage in the creation of improvisatory telematic sonic performances, derived from the experience of listening and sounding within Bangalore. Through slowing down, students will question how the sounds of the city respond to their listening experience, how their voice and words resonate within the urban space, how dislocation sounds in Bangalore and how creatively, using telematic technologies, they could invite audiences to slow down, dislocate, listen and connect.
Srishti-Interim is built into the curriculum to encourage talent through an open-ended framework for learning by engaging with contemporary artistic practices. Contemporary artists are invited from all over the world to lead this.
