As part of the cultural program of Matera, European Capital of Culture 2019, the Atlas of the emotions of the cities, a project conceived by the Associazione Teatro dei Sassi, proposes to create a new way of visiting cities through the use of a Emotional Map built by collecting the memories and stories of the inhabitants and, gradually, the same visitors.
The project, co-produced by the Matera – Basilicata 2019 Foundation and by the Associazione Teatro dei Sassi, identifies Matera as a city where to experiment for the first time this way.
On Tuesday 17th July 2018, the choreographer dancer Heike Hennig, partner of the project, arrived in the City of the Sassi to carry out the necessary inspections at the “T. Stigliani “in order to devise the choreography planned during the inauguration of the” Secretissima de lo Core “room, an interactive site of memories and stories, which can be visited from March to July 2019.
In these days, Hennig will also take a look at the emotional maps created by the citizens of Matera, the works created in the first two apiaries directed by Stefano Faravelli and the first stories produced by the Scuola Holden by Alessandro Baricco.
