The “Umbra Solis” project is a plan of exploration and a laboratory for action. Is transnational, being formed by individuals that reside in many different places and have been fed by different national identities.
Some people, that recognizes themselves in the motto “Umbra Solis” will gather and cluster to explore the “other side of the inside”. It will be done to serve art and not to serve egos.
Hopefully we will climb on giant’s shoulders.
The exploration starts from: Marinetti, Artaud, Brecht, Brooke.
