The idea behind this workshop is to rethink human coexistence as well as community and individual rituals in a different scenario and context for socialization: the planet Mars.
To imagine an immersion into a context different from our own implies unlearning obvious social conveniences and then learning new codes of human relationships necessary for survival of a society in unknown territories.
As the martian ambient and material context cannot be reproduced, we shall elaborate on concepts which relate to Mars through experience and perceptual exercises which lead to unexpected sensorial revelations.
