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.
