In the CICLO-project, Marcela and Marluze will work closely together based on the sustainability concept ‘cradle-to-cradle’ and create a cross-curricular expression in cooperation with the students. The project deals with the sustainability theme by focusing strongly on consumption and the individual person’s contribution to sustainable development through daily life. From this emerge the concepts of overconsumption and reuse as subtopics to our general consumption. In order to provide another perspective on our consumption in Denmark, we will draw a parallel between consumption in Brazil and Denmark by comparing the use of technology and natural resources in both countries. The development of the artistic work will start from the class and each student’s selected daily resources and materials which can be sounds and movements already embedded in their own body or surroundings. In the process, we will point out the already existing features around and inside the students thus stimulating them to see possibilities in limitations.
Marcela Lucatelli is a composer/performer educated at The Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts Southern Denmark and the Danish National School of Performing Arts. She has an extensive experience of interactive art education and creative learning processes. As an artist, Marcela’s interest is to reveal the disturbing links between music and language with a focus on the performative approach to listening and production of sound across biased meanings. Existential provocation and new structures for cooperation is constantly aimed for.
Marluze da Cruz’ interest is to create vivid, visual images and to embrace and reinforce moods. She works on the basis of the specific artistic situation and takes into account materials, surroundings and the ensemble’s inherent aesthetics, among others, and through this seeks to show their full potential. Marluze is a choreographer and dancer educated at the Danish National School of Performing Arts and at Copenhagen Contemporary Dance School. In addition, she has many years of teaching experience with children, youths and adults.
