Colaboración con Sofía Santím - Libro de Poesías, El Mar

Estudio Nuboso está en proceso de crear un libro a mano para las poesías de El Mar, que Sofía Santím comparte en esta nueva etapa de enamoramiento con la naturaleza, interacción con ella y su fuerza.
Cada parte se inspira en los colores y texturas que ella describe.
Es una pieza única, que será distribuida por pedidos especiales. 

aquí mostramos algunas fotos del trabajo en proceso...

Estudio Nuboso Vision Reloaded

We are collaborating across the ocean on books, and brainstorming ideas for residential projects. For the time being, we have plans to hold events once a year in Eco Venao, Bajo Grande and Panama City. 

Our mission is to improve quality of life by being profoundly involved and focused on facilitating balance in the body, environment and coexistence with community and nature. We aim to do this through creativity, education, communication and a supportive, sustainable approach to life. By establishing a local and global exchange with human-social and environmental awareness, we will promote peace and growth for all parties involved. 


In the long term we aim to be...


* An umbrella under which projects and initiatives that share our vision can manifest and receive support through us and our allies


* A platform for exchange of ideas and practices in art, wellbeing and sustainability


* A place grounded in the principles of Permaculture, to be in tune with the rhythms and flow of its environment and built to be self-sustainable


* A space to recharge


* An opportunity to go deep into the clouds of the creative process, condense ideas and come out with mild or pounding drops of rain which yield fresh clarity

Roses & Beans Talleres y Performance

Estas son fotos del taller que Tove ofreció de Contact Improvisación - tres de las participantes descubrieron el contact por primera vez y lo disfrutaron inmensamente!

Dag y Patrick enseñaron trucos de circo y malabares a los niños de Cañas, comunidad vecina de Venao.




Al final de su estadía en Panamá, Dag y Tove ofrecieron un taller de improvisación a bailarines profesionales en la ciudad de Panamá y compartieron con el público de la galería Diablo Rosso, una noche de improvisación sobre su obra en proceso. Roses & Beans estrenará finalmente en junio en Estocolmo.
En las paredes colgamos las fotos producto de la colaboración con Ela (ver elaspaldingfoto.blogspot.com)
Es todo un tema esto del amor, las relaciones, nuestros roles en las mismas y por supuesto, el performance.
Fue una noche muy especial y divertida que nos sorprendió a todos!



Ahora que Dag y Tove estan de vuelta en Suecia, esperamos seguir la colaboración en mayo y junio de este año.

Living Art

This brave artist couple has ventured deep into the Panamanian lush forest of life in the tropics, leaving behind their day-to-day to allow their art to flow and grow in unexpected ways.
We started the year driving up to the mountains, where we saw the full moon rise over the Volcan Barú on a clear night.
There we had many good talks about life, art, and collaboration over coffee, tea and a nice warm fire - we ran up and down the hill and the garden making photos for Roses & Beans, which is getting juicier and juicier by the minute.

here are a few examples...


Which brings us back to Venao. Where their residency continues for another few weeks.
In the month of December we had another performance artist visit us from Berlin.
Liz Erber with super partner Marco and baby Theo Ben Leo - all on a voyage together, looking for warm experiences and time for writing and nursing away from the ice cold winter.
Liz took 10 days off in Eco Venao to take long walks and put into words the array of experiences this new body, new baby, and new countries have been giving her...

She also shared with us a really beautiful Contact Improv class on one of our Retreat Weekends.

The next thing up is a workhops with 13 kids from the town of Cañas - 20 min. down the road from Eco Venao. Totally free of charge and full of fun tricks, juggling and acrobatics.
The workshops will be taught by Dag Andersson and Patrick Slepica (who is also coming through from Berlin, travelling through Central America, for a mini residency exchange period).

Then Roses & Beans offers a workshop in Panama City on January 19th, and a showing with cake and chat in Diablo Rosso on January 20th.
