Marilyne Grimmer (FR)
Marilyne Grimmer is a French photographer and visual artist living in Brussels (Belgium).
Saluti da… (Greetings from…) is a participatory photographic project that investigates the relationship of each and every one of us with the here and the elsewhere.
Grimmer met with the inhabitants of Pergine Valsugana, Milan, Modena, Gradisca and Campsirago (Lecco), immortalising them in public space and teleporting them to memories of the past or places of dreams through photo montage.
The result is an exhibition of images that can be admired in the foyer of ZONA K and a series of surreal postcards to collect.
Tiziana Freti, Maria Luisa Galelli, Melitta Manca and the legendary Michele Giammello were photographed for the Milan stage.

Rimini Protokoll (DE)
THE WALKS is an app with a series of walks by German theatre company, Rimini Protokoll. Each walk is a short audio experience for a specific place in your city, and an invitation to rediscover and interact with your environment.
It takes approximately 20 minutes to do an audio walk. Get going whenever you want. You decide how many of the walks you’d like to do and in what order. The stories and soundscapes in the short audio experiences are global in scope. “The Walks” connects people around the world in a local experience via the fundamental human action of walking.
Walking in public gained new meaning with the COVID-19 pandemic. An ancient, daily ritual became an integral part of the new normality. People meet, walk, stroll through neighborhoods, play in landscapes, and perceive their environment anew with every stride.
THE WALKS understands walking as a theatrical scenario – an audio-guided walk in parks, a staged walk in supermarkets or timed interactions on riverbanks. In every city, voices, sounds, and music turn familiar places into sites and landscapes into stages step by step through storytelling, dialogical situations, choreographic discoveries, or musical and rhythmic variations on walking. The title of every walk indicates where or how to do it: “Walk for a cemetery,” “Walk along the water,” or “Walk around a roundabout.”
THE WALKS is a production of Rimini Apparat co-produced by ZONA K

Helgard Haug, Stefan Kaegi and Daniel Wetzel founded the theatre-label Rimini Protokoll in 2000 and have since worked in different constellations under this name. Rimini Protokoll often develop their stage-works, interventions, performative installations and audio plays together with experts who have gained their knowledge and skills beyond the theatre. Furthermore, they like to transpose rooms or social structures into theatrical formats. Many of their works feature interactivity and a playful use of technology.
On top of that, Rimini Protokoll received the Mülheimer Dramatikerpreis for “Karl Marx: Das Kapital, Erster Band”, the German theatre award Faust, the Grand Prix Theatre from the Swiss Federal Office for Culture, the European Theatre Award, the Silver Lion at the Theatre Biennale in Venice, as well as the German Audio Play Award and the War Blinded Audio Play Prize.
Since 2003, the production office of Rimini Protokoll is in Berlin.
“Generazione gLocale” is an artistic production by ZONA K, an urban and participatory performance in which the new generations of multi-ethnic societies are given a voice. The project includes theatre workshops and the creation of an urban and interactive performance directed by Andrea Ciommiento under the supervision of the Catalan artist Roger Bernat.
In what context do we live? Are we in Milan, Toronto or Manila? Do we recognise and differentiate ourselves by where we come from or how we inhabit cities? How do we defend our local belonging in a world without borders? Audience and actors look at each other, move in the space, follow the instructions of a voice in the headphones. 150 people advance and retreat until they mingle or move further and further away. Is it a generational or ethnic issue?
A gLocal vision that appropriates the term introduced by the sociologist Bauman to indicate the phenomena resulting from the impact of globalisation on local realities and vice versa, and that narrates the dialogue between small communities and increasingly complex systems.
Each performance is a site & people specific version that comes from “participatory creation” workshops with a group of local young people who become the creators, creators and organisers of the project.
The protagonists of the first project were second-generation Milanese young people involved in the course from March to July 2017 in the role of creators and organisers of the project thanks to the support of the Cooperativa Diapason (Milan) as cultural mediators.
Part of the work was carried out within the Italian language courses for foreigners together with the Association of social promotion Asnada (Milan), integrating the vision of the chosen themes with that of those who have recently arrived in Italy and with citizens (Italian and not) who live in the metropolitan city on a daily basis.
The national debut of the performance took place on Sunday 30 July 2017 in the urban spaces of Castello Sforzesco thanks to the logistical support of the Culture Department of the City of Milan and the support of MigrArti 2017 by MiBACT.
The logistic and organisational partners were C.L.A.P. Spettacolo dal vivo (MI) and OLINDA (MI).
