My residency in Ginoza is finished and I’m back to Berlin.
It was such an intense experience and I learned so much, I had the chance to work on a huge theater project ad met great artist and people that I will never forget, I had 2 workshop with the children of the primary school in Ginoza and I’m so thankful because they teached me so much and remember me to keep watching the world with amazed eyes. I also had 2 exhibition, one in Ginoza and one in Naha.
It was lot of work, but I’m so glad I had this opportunity and I would do it again 100 times.
Thanks so much to all the people of Garaman Hall and Rheinbilder project, you all will have always a special place in my heart.
Hello there, I’ve been in Okinawa for almost two weeks now, working crazy to prepare the scenography for the show “Rheinbilder” that will be in Garaman Hall on the 21st and 22nd July.
It is the first time for me to draw something that will be screened with projector on an multi layer screen setup, and I’m learning something new every day. Drawing for screening is quite different from drawing for books, there are many things to consider, for example the contrast of the images that must be quite strong to work good with the lights on the stage.
Here you can see the flyer of the show. For more info and tickets follow the link of the Garaman Hall theater. So to all of you who will be in Okinawa on the 21st or 22nd July, come to see it! It will be a great show, in the romantic scenery of the Rhein river with live music, dancing, acting and my illustrations!
So also this little break from the daily life is going to the end and tomorrow evening I’ll go back to Berlin. It was very nice being in Barcellona with my old sicilian friends, enjoying the heat of a mediterranean land.
Tomorrow before leaving I will be with my friends in La Rambla, celebrating Sant Jordi in an improvised stand with books, roses and my bookmarks. My friends are all amazing writers and their book are crazy good, written both in italian and spanish. So if you are in Barcellona come to visit us tomorrow!
And now I leave you with a sketch that I did in the Park Guell listening to a band called Tablao Sur, they played beautiful latin music danced so nicely! It was very inspiring being in that wonderful park with that soundtrack.
