From the SUR

Multidisciplinary project focused on exploring and expanding several elements from South America’s cultural heritage.

The project is run by a team of artists who facilitate music, dance ad street art workshops, and ended with a performance that combined all the elements and participants together.

From the SUR is in partnership with
@pianodrome and has been supported by the City of Edinburgh Council’s Diversity & Inclusion Fund.

From the SUR includes

Cajones in the neighborhood
Lead by @joserojasnavea
Sessions of craft & music workshops focused on building percussion instruments from upcycled piano wood, and learning some traditional and modern rhythm patterns from Afro-Latin American Heritage.

Dancing Sur
Lead by @andreatorresviedma
Sessions of a creative journey through elements of Afro-Latin American dances to develop a site-specific performance, creating an encounter between the sculptural location and physical space of the Pianodrome, while learning dance movement and approaches from the Sur [South].

Both workshops include street art to paint the instruments and to create some costumes lead by the artist @yon.qui 

The final performance has taken place at the Pianodrome.
