SESSION I | Where the Social Change Intersects with the Arts
Many performing arts companies work with groups that have been affected by different socio – political conditions. These groups manage to consolidate artistic training and project creation where participants find a space for remarkable personal and social transformation. Additionally, these communities often reach outstanding professional levels. This session will be an opportunity for dialogue focused on projects in which youth-at-risk, vulnerable children and populations choose the arts as an alternative way of life, away from their immediate environment; thus enabling them to follow the path of becoming artists, to form companies and to improve their personal and professional quality of life.
Moderator | Claudia Toni (Centro Universitário Maria Antonia)
Speaker | Ahmad Nasser (Afghanistan National Institute of Music), Álvaro Restrepo (El Colegio del Cuerpo), and Felicity Simpson (Circolombia)
15:30













SESSION II | Arts in Resistance
Guest groups support various forms of political and cultural resistance, from specific angles of struggle, protest and outcry, preservation of traditions and ancient cultures and generation of movements in which performing arts are deeply linked to a political stance. Artists will focus their presentations on the identification of such relationships and forms of work carried out internally and with the community. They will also elaborate on what they resist, and why this is one of the quintessential foundations of their creation.

SESSION III | Borders, Boundaries, and Crosslinks
Many creators in the performing arts produce works that cross borders (artistic, political, social), leading to a different perceptions of theirwork. In this session we’ll discuss groups that explore crossdiciplines within their artistic pursuits to radically participate politically, yet do so through forms of contemporary offers and aesthetics; artists interested in both their countries and other realities around the world who explore complex situations with great insight into the socio-political realm, generating critical and confrontational views of reality.
Moderator | Geza Kovács (Hungarian National Philharmonic Non-profit Ltd.)
Speaker | Rolf Abderhalden (Mapa Teatro), Eduardo Bernal (Teatro Línea de Sombra), and Heiner Goebbels (Composer)
11:30
SESSION IV | Tradition and Renovation
We see a dialect between what is inherited as a tradition, and what arises from colonization in almost every culture, as well as the new and groundbreaking present. Performing arts thrive in this constant movement of assimilation, cultural influences and symbiosis. The groups that will meet to discuss these issues are widely recognized for creating a fusion of aesthetics, languages and artistic movements.

Based on the rationale of entrepreneurship and internationaltouring, cultural markets for the performing arts play an increasingly important role.

This session shall elaborate on ways to access these markets, ranging from visions of Latin America to those of Europe.

FINAL CONVERSATIONS | Testimonials of Art and Lives
In all regions of Colombia there are stories that take on great value when it comes to what art can move in a person’s life. On the one hand we have youth coming from marginalized communities who have become internationally recognized artists; on the other hand we see others who remain in their hometowns but change their attitudes and lifestyles in a dramatic fashion thanks to the arts. Displaced people partake in collective creations and members of armed groups who undergo demobilization discover the potential of art. Listening to these testimonies is the best way to understand – from personal experiences – the deeply transformative power of the arts and what the arts move.
Moderator | Max Wagner
Speaker | Baldomero Anaya (Demobilized due to Colombian Conflict as part of the reintegration process from the Colombian Agency for Reintegration), Carlos Andres Lemos (Fundación Nacional Batuta), Beto Gallego, “El Poeta” , Betty Garcés , and José Henry Caicedo (Circolombia)
