The Rainbow Trace:
Segni Mossi Summer Camp at Thailand
ART is something that makes you breathe with a different kind of happiness.
― Anni Albers
Segni Mossi was born in 2014, and 2020 will be the year of seven. And the seventh year, exactly means the changing year of life circle. From a new birth child, each seven year our mind will enter to the next level, our body as well, to gain a better metabolism, cells and the systems inside our body, each seven year going to have a big change. So, Segni Mossi either, in 2020, we develop a new form of investigation: Summer Camp.
In the past years, the teacher training in many countries around the world has been developing year after year. Starting from Yellow, Orange, Red, Pink, and the latest Blue. During this period of transformation, how to build a communication channel among countries, gradually sprout in Segni Mossi. After all, since its birth, the nutrients of Segni Mossi have come from the spark of the communication with children.
Therefore, we decided to use "Rainbow" as a bridge for communication among countries, and invited artists from all over the world to come to Chiang Mai, Thailand. We will select the issues of each training as an introduction, and create more in-depth collective creation. Longing for the earth art village, we are weaving the rainbow track that belongs to us.
About Segni Mossi
Segni mossi is a research project born in 2014 from the visual artist Alessandro Lumare and the choreographer Simona Lobefaro in order to investigates the relationship between dance and the graphic sign with children and adults:
Dance as different material, projection in the space, emergence of the emotional
Sign as extension of the body, action, scent of experiences
We move into a certain dimension, which is about the exploration, experimentation, discovery, amazement.
Segni Mossi partner with Mus-e Italia to promote social inclusion through art in public primary schools in Rome, Italy. Since 2015, Segni Mossi have been conducting training courses and workshops in more than 20 countries, and been selected by HundrED organization as one of its 100 innovative education projects across the world for the years 2017 and 2019.
Segni Mossi's goals in the work with kids and adults
◆ Valorize the sign and freeing it from any representative subordination.
◆ Overcome fears and conventions related to supposed graphic and movement incompetence.
◆ Facilitate the awareness of the body and stimulate its motor and creative potential.
◆ Explore the connection between the expressive qualities of the body movements and the expressive qualities of the sign.
◆ Linger on the creative process rather than the result.
◆ Consider the experimentation as a working method.
◆ Gain confidence in itself and in others through a cooperative dimension.
◆ Develop the relationship with the group and the socialization by respecting and valuing the differences between every single one.

About Rainbow Trace Summer Camp
The Rainbow trace camp are 5 days crossed by Segni Mossi ingredients: Dance and draw in relation, simplicity, rigour, play, taste for exploration and collaboration. We will let our emotional world spread through the body both into space and on physical surfaces on which we will leave marks in relationship with the others. Marks that will give us precious feedbacks of our action, of our place within the group. We will be brought in a creative and experimental dimension to experience at the same time being the artificers and the artwork itself, a living and continuously transforming collective artwork in which everyone will contribute with his/her own unique peculiarity.
The camp will be enriched by herb steam baths, yoga classes, meditations and massages experiences to create a seamless link with the artistic work: the water which tenderly defines our boundaries, the energetic flow we feel during a yoga class, the inner space we contact during a meditation, the path we follow along our skin surface during a massage. Inner and outside traces in relationship. Moreover all the precious free time we will spend together beside the activities like eating organic food, going for a walk, exchanging ideas, listening to music…all this will help the group to be an open and welcoming space in which every difference will be accepted and valorized.
