PRACTISING DESIRE

Lavanderia a Vapore is our “wishing machine”, an organism that neither fulfils nor satisfies desires, but offers people a gym to practice desire, to learn to desire starting from the rediscovery and deep listening of pleasure, known as a space for rediscovering ourselves and possible rebellions.
We are bodies born to feel emotions, yet today it seems that anesthesia is the dominant value, accompanied by words such as duty, sacrifice and frustration. We want to be loved/liked without experiencing pleasure.
We therefore want to practice small forms of personal and social acupuncture, pursuing artistic explorations, asking critical questions and experiences that help us move towards a joyful way of living.
To desire is a choreography of the body and of the imagination, it flirts with the impossible to imagine new visions of alternatives and pluriverses, an energetic engine that mobilizes resources dormant in the present, towards something that does not yet exist and inspires the future.
We investigate desire not as an object connected to having (bound to the need for possession induced by the capitalist paradigm) but desiring as a verb, as a practice and posture which is the driving force towards the ineffable, towards something that escapes, towards a future landscape to be imagine together or to fix by overturning the present: a prophecy towards the discovery of who we are and can become, body, individuals and society.
In this sense, desiring means focusing on a desire and rediscovering pleasure, and it is the path towards a political revolution, unpredictable, irresistible, tireless and sustainable.
