Welcome to join us for nine days of performance focused work based in the Villa San Bernardo near Rome, including an acoustic performance at Teatro di Documenti in Rome on Saturday, April 22nd with additional performances in the Rome-Napoli area currently being planned.
The Radius Guitar Ensemble inherits its name from the Stella Radius Quartet which performed in Bologna in October last year, using a new format based on the work done a few weeks earlier at the Beginning Again retreat in Ceprano. These experiences continue to inform us as we explore ways of approaching group work and the performance event.
Participation is open to anyone who has attended at least one Guitar Circle or directly related project, and has an established Morning Sitting practice. Much of our work will be done using guitars, but anyone who would see themselves participating without guitar is also welcome.
A necessary requirement for being on the Performance Team is the ability to play in tune, in tone, and in time.
The work is organised by an experienced team including Alessandro Bruno, Giorgia Casmirro, Fernando Kabusacki, Marco Moreira, Dev Ray, and Mikael Weichbrodt. Roles will be assumed and held lightly according to the needs of the moment.
Alexander Technique work will be available, lead by Giorgia Casmirro.
The location is Villa San Bernardo, an annex to a nun’s convent located in Ceprano, ca. 1h south of Rome by train or car.
Arrivals: from Friday, April 14th late afternoon to Saturday, April 15th by 13:00
Departures: Sunday, April 23rd after lunch
The necessary contribution per person is €600.
