Upayakuwasi, Residencies 2018

cayambe

Upayakuwasi is located in a mountain valley between 4 mountains in Ecuador. Since 2015, with the support of La Divina Papaya, it has been gradually been developing a space for creation, production and resistance on the themes of art, nature, technology and rural development. In 2018 the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Ecuador awarded the project a grant to develop four residences with local and regional artists. The residences combine quiet creation with workshops and performances, principally in the small town of Cayambe but also in Quito, the capital, some two hours away by road.

Un/loquer: 5 members of the Medellín, Colombia, based hackerspace came in March to develop and share cheap and accessible technologies for automatizing irrigation systems. These developments were shared with the agro-ecology networks of Cayambe and the Austro, a region 10 hours from Upayakuwasi. Delegates from these organisations were introduced to the world of the hackers and vice versa. Workshops were also held with a local school and in MedialabUIO in Quito. Their residence culminated in the Agrohack, a three day minifestival, where the various communities that intersect in Upayakuwasi were able to meet, learn, create and celebrate together.

Alexandra Cardenas is a Colombian composer and musician and one of the leading figures of the Algorave movement (google it!) .This year she won an Ibermusicas grant to finance a tour of the Andes and that included a residence and activities in Upayakuwasi in April. While here she created a new piece (URL), performed physicall in Quito and Cayambe and, remotely, in an algorave in ZKM, Germany, and gave workshops in a cybercafe in a popular “shopping centre” in the centre of Cayambe and in MedialabUIO.

Marc Caellas is a Catalan writer and theatre director who has also lived and worked for many years in Latin America, particularly Colombia and Venezuela. He is a constant experimenter with theatrical forms and new dramaturgical possibilities. In Upayakuwasi, at the end of April, he directed a four day “documental theatre” workshop in the Cayambe Municipal Theatre, working with a mixed group of local youth and professionals from other areas of the country. The result, named “Sinceramente”, was presented to the public at the end of the workshop.

Herbarium. This project, aimed at mapping the local flora, combines traditional women’s knowledge of plants with biologists and artists. Three Saturdays in July are dedicated to walking together around the area of Upayakuwasi, observing, drawing, documenting, listening, appreciating. The productions of these activities will be shown in an exhibition in Cayambe and in La Huerta y la Maquina in Quito in September. Documentation to come soon.

In addition to these four residencies, the Quito based DesAcuerdos theatre group will be developing a new piece in Upayakuwasi during an intensive residency in August and sharing their knowledge in a workshop for women.

Upayakuwasi is currently developing it’s residency program for 2019 and can be contacted by email: upayakuwasi at gmail.com

Encuentro de Escenas Artísticas de Tungurahua

aficheEscenas_cambioFin_Web (1)

Organizarse jamás ha querido decir afiliarse a la misma organización. Organizarse es actuar según una percepción común, al nivel que sea.” El Comité Invisible (1)

El primer Encuentro Intercultural de Escenas Artísticas de Tungurahua – http://tungurahua2015.wikidot.com – tuvo lugar el 27 y 28 de agosto 2015 en la Universidad Técnica de Ambato, campus Huachi (un dato importante dado que la UTA tiene 3 campus en Ambato), reuniendo a artistas y creadores de toda la Provincia. El objetivo, en palabras de Tania Navarrete, Directora de la Dirección Provincial de Tungurahua del Ministerio de Cultura y Patrimonio y convocadora del Encuentro, “de encontrarse, conocerse, hacer un mapeo de artistas y gestores, saber quienes somos, que estamos haciendo, es además, hacer propuestas colectivas que los interconecten.” (2)

El Encuentro de Escenas Artísticas provocó la articulación de las diferentes prácticas artísticas y culturales de la provincia de Tungurahua en beneficio de su ecosistema cultural. Para este fin se sirvió de una metodología basada en el encuentro, el intercambio, la información y el movimiento físico.
