Cabildo’s Laboratorio de Artes Vivas Tenerife LAV presents the event Revelarnos: el laboratorio [Revealing ourselves: the Lab], to take place from 3 to 6 October. It consists of four sessions to take place at Auditorio de Tenerife and at other venues in Santa Cruz and La Laguna in which artists, curators, live arts professionals, culture professionals, thinkers and people connected to Tenerife LAV will take part.

Attendees include artists Alina Ruiz Folini (Arqueologías del Futuro, Buenos Aires) and Abraham Hurtado (AADK Centro Negra, Murcia) so that, quoting the project’s coordinator Javier Cuevas, “they lead us, challenge us and help us to look, touch, move and concentrate the powers offered by the Island in all its layers and dimensions”.

These activities call for a changing, physical and careful context to question the Tenerife LAV model as a project on relationship, research and reflection where contemporary live arts can have a place through the Island, making the most of the recent transformation of Leal.LAV into Tenerife LAV and all the powers displayed in this transfer.

The programme includes morning sessions, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at Sala Puerto in Auditorio de Tenerife. Every morning, Alina Ruiz Folini will show gymnastics-warmup exercises in order to share with the participants the interests, questions and concepts that will be dealt with in depth at the afternoon sessions. Gimnasias, from common Greek gymnos (γυμνός), which means nudity, related to the verb gymnazein, which means doing physical exercise.

The afternoon working sessions will be held from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm and will be done through written and spoken conversations in different locations. Tomorrow [Tuesday, the 3rd] the venue will be Sala de Cámara of Teatro Leal; on Wednesday [the 4th], the sessions will take place at Biblioteca Municipal Adrián Alemán de Armas de La Laguna; on Thursday [the 5th], the activity will be carried out in one of the offices Solar Acción Cultural, in Calle San Lucas, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife; and finally, Ateneo de La Laguna will host the fourth “Revelarnos” session.
