CONVERSATION: ROOM OR DWELLING 


This research is about 3 concepts that are interrelated between them:

Conversation
Encounter
Playground

Our way of understanding these concepts comes from a physical practice that puts our bodies in relation. In this physical practice we use the concept of playground as a container of our encounter, an encounter between two bodies that have a conversation. A place where we can develop our dialogic abilities, a listening practice, management of disagreements, or the arrival to common agreements.

We consider important to take the idea of game as a mediator and enabler of affects and knowledge. As a facilitator of a conversation that could allow the co-participation of individual beings and also their confrontation.

In a virtual society, where relations tend to be alienating, where there is more and more distance on human encounters and we are increasingly disconnected from the present it’s difficult to give yourself the time for leisure, for joy, for the encounter with the others.
