LA CORPA was born from a desire for relationship and alliance between people who work in different but close realities, both geographically and ideologically. Driven by the intention to collaborate, addressing sensitive and contemporary topics on the plurality of the body (corpo), or rather in the corpa.
This reflection builds and advances with a constant relation to culture, art, politics, from a transfeminist, ‘decolonial’, ecological, anti-capitalist, non-hierarchical and non-competitive perspective. LA CORPA stems from the desire and urgency to open up a space for reflection, experimentation and enjoyment, arising from the experience already under way of the COLLANT_project workshop for migrant women (2021-22).
In the afternoon of 17 March, we will focus with midwife Anna Ruocco on the voice and the pelvic area of each of us through the practice of psychophony, a discipline which, thanks to vocalisation, establishes a profound link between receptivity and emission, between self-recognition and self-expression.
Anna Ruocco is a midwife, co-founder of the Associazione Casa Maternità Prima Luce.
A safe space will be guaranteed during the meeting, respecting all participants without discrimination in terms of gender, ability, cultural, religious, age. The workshop is open to all.
Fika, in Sweden, is the time of day when one takes a break with a sweet treat and a coffee, with work colleagues or friends.
For Comala, FIKA is a series of snack time appointments in which workshops, discussions and encounters are held to address issues such as sexuality, the experiences of the female body and the social and political contingencies that we go through and experience as women and gender non-conforming people, all through an anti-patriarchal, inclusive and transfeminist lens.
LA CORPA is the result of a working group collaboration between Associazione Comala, the Associazione Tampep ETS and the Fondazione Merz.
The activity is part of the “Le cose che abbiamo in comune” project (The things we have in common), coordinated by Associazione Comala and financed by the city of Turin (on Axis 6 – measure TO6.2.1.a REACT TO COVID).
The project aims to develop community cultural garrisons along the axis running from Piazza Benefica (Cit Turin) to the Fondazione Merz and the Chiribiri Gardens (San Paolo) via the former La Marmora barracks in Corso Ferrucci (the junction point between the two neighbourhoods), with a broad, continuous and heterogeneous programme of events and cultural appointments.
