And so another Original Cultures has ended, the fourth main event since the project started officially in 2009 and the last show of our 3rd year!
The Formula, our production for 2011, was very special for many reasons: it saw the return of international artists for the event, we held the event in the Arena Orfeonica – a space we’d originally asked to use for our first ever show back in 09 – and it was a much bigger and ambitious production than anything we’ve done so far. It was not only a success but also a truly amazing experience for all involved.
As always the week’s music and visual workshops culminated in a final show on Saturday night, this time under the direction of Pietro Babina – an essential addition to this year’s production who really pulled it all together on the night and helped to realise our most intricate and cohesive live show so far.
Many thanks to everyone who came down on the night and helped make the event a success. Thanks and gratitude also go to all the artists, the staff and the people who helped us throughout the week – you know who you are.
Below you can find a summary of all the week’s documentation – photos, videos, blogs – with a few more things coming over the weekend. And look out for the official ‘The Formula’ documentary sometime after the summer. Before that though we’ll be releasing the show from last year’s production, ‘From Inner Space’, in early July.
