Free Flowing – Tomás Saraceno Experiencing Art with Parkinson’s

Free Flowing is the new project that Palazzo Strozzi is devoting to inclusion, in conjunction with Dance Well – movement and research for Parkinson’s.

The scheme got off the ground in autumn 2018 thanks to interaction with the experience built up by the Parkinson’s Centre at the Villa Margherita (Kos Care) in Vicenza and in the city of Bassano del Grappa. Following initial experimentation in autumn 2018, the project is now a regular feature of Palazzo Strozzi Education programme.

In the course of the Tomás Saraceno. Aria exhibition, a cycle of encounters will enable participants to relate to Saraceno’s art through bodily expression. Participants are invited to experiment with different ways of interacting with the exhibition spaces and with the works on display in the rooms, using the language of words, movement and dance.

Tomás Saraceno’s installations provide the starting point for a physical and emotional experience in the course of which people are encouraged to observe, to feel and to listen to one another and to themselves.

The initiative has been made possible by, and been developed in dialogue with, the Fresco Parkinson Institute, a renowned international centre for care and research into Parkinson’s disease and mobility-related conditions.

The project will start again in September 2020.
Introductory encounter: Thursday 17 September, 15.00.

Participation is free of charge and is open to all.
All activities are held in Italian.
