now it is scheduled from 25 to 27 September 2015, a happening on the living mountain Etna, a fantastic three days of events in the incredible scenario of the highest volcano in Europe. The activities will be concentrated in this magical retreat during which you can share reflections and experiences, developing performances, tasting genuine food and observing the stars directly and with the aid of a telescope.

Why “happening”?

Happening was the form used in the ’60s and’ 70s to define a meeting-event in which you may be able to inquire your unconscious, with the aim to bring it to the level of efficient and conscious awareness, using communication techniques and gestural poses. They are famous models happenings of the time of the protest of the Free Speech Movement and the avant-garde group Fluxus, sit-ins and readings & mantras of Allen Ginzberg to the most recent experiments made by the Odin Teatret and the Living Theatre.

The goal is to achieve the basic features of an act that is both philosophical, artistic but also political and economic, affirming art as a spiritual language, oriented to define the contents of consciousness and freedom.



From this experience a short movie / documentary will be presented in October at the general meeting of the European Beat Studies Network.

Waiting for you here in Etna, September 25 to 27.
