Es Baluard Museu and the Conselleria de Fons Europeus, Universitat i Cultura of the Govern de les Illes Balears proposes a new session of I-CorDes, Institut de Corpologies Deslocalizades, a public program that aims to return bodies to the center, reaffirm their face-to-face position in space, in the environment, at a time when they have been relegated to the seclusion and no contact. The session includes a theoretical, a practical and a sound part, led respectively by José Antonio Sánchez, Mariantònia Oliver and Jaume Manresa.


10:30 am-13:30pm «Corpology and Poetics». Theoretical session by José Antonio Sánchez.

This first part of the session will be developed as a succession of three movements:

1. Poetic bodies, or micropolitics of communal creation. Against fatalism, brutality or cynicism that lead to accept the existence of expendable bodies. For a reworking of vulnerability and interdependence as powers of enunciation and action.
Interlude: imagination and listening practice.
2. Voices. On the linking of the word and the throat, on the corporeal nature of logos, on the uniqueness of voice and on the voice as a common capacity, on voices and languages, on languages ​​without voice, on translations.
Interlude: silence.
3. Defense of opacity. Because our bodies are opaque. Because opacity protects the difference. Because in the opacity dwells the negativity that shapes us as loving bodies, dancing bodies, thinking bodies, poetic bodies.

(Based on ideas from Suely Rolnik, Judith Butler, María Zambrano, Adriana Cavarero, León Ferrari and Édouard Glissant, among others)

  • 13:30h-14:30h Lunch break
  • 14:30h-17:30h «Inhabited Score». Practical session by Mariantònia Oliver

We propose to start by designing a body. A very simple body starting from a basic physical structure: bones, lines, gravity. To experience each one from its physicality and thus inhabit the own curiosities that we live when we are in movement, exploring in confidence and serenity. Exposing this body, sharing it, inhabiting it with others, creating a chorus of poetic singularities. To experience the diversity of the community by actively reflecting thanks to the multiplicity, dialogue and kindness in exposing and sharing, designing scores of multiple realities or fictions.

  • 17:30h-19:30h Sound session by Jaume Manresa

The beat, the sound, the pulsation, the voice, the musicality. How do these words take shape in the individual body and in the collective body? What imaginaries are created and what political consequences are derived? We propose a dialogue and an accompaniment between the body and the sound. What is the common space and the individual space? Where are the limits, if they exist?
