Even if we wanted to, we cannot kill our dead. There are certain tasks that the dead summon us to do. And so, we carry them with us in our day to day lives, in small gestures or flashes of very intense emotion. How to share the losses, that which remains bound to us, the strange impermanence, that eagerness to bury our hearts, the confusing and incessant buzzing blue pain? Mourning is a political task, it builds community, it is a ritual of caring that reproduces life. Mourning unites us. I often talk to my friends about this, I believe that our grandmothers were the last ones to truly understand that death was part of life. They knew how to reconnect with the soil, and now perhaps it is time for us to create other rituals, other ways of being, of living and of dying.

Between January and June 2021, Marta Echaves carried out extensive research into mourning, its representations, politics and rituals. She was accompanied by the choreographer Esther Rodriguez Barbero, the artist Julia Montilla and the researcher Maria Rosón. From that series of meetings and conversations emerge certain questions and approaches which have shaped the programme of public activities That Blue Buzzing Sound.

Understanding research as a way of accompanying other projects that also address our contemporary relationship to death and grieving, That Blue Buzzing Sound focuses on sharing practices and poetics that make it possible to grasp experiences when language fails us and the end is centre-stage.

Marta Echaves. She is the coordinator of activities in Spain for the publishing house Caja Negra. She has written for artists' catalogues and publications and is, alongside María Ruido and Antonio Gomez Villar, the editor of Working Dead. Post-work scenarios (La virreina at the Centre of the Image). Interested in writing and historical research, her projects aim to revisit images and metaphors by focusing on intimate experiences and anecdotes as detonators of poetic memory devices. “La Contrarrevolución de los Caballos” was an investigation into heroin and HIV in the context of Spanish neoliberalism, which took on various formats and was shown in places such as Can Felipa, MACBA, MNCARS, ARCO... More recently, she presented her research into post-dictatorship paranormal memory with the conference "De las Acechanzas" (On the Hauntings) at the Domingo Festival.

The Huerto en la terraza of the CA2M has been holding workshops for almost a decade. During this time, we have lived through an active process involving the participation of many different people, all of whom have made it a meeting spot based on teamwork and shared knowledge.

Since its beginnings, the Huerto en la terraza has been a space whose aim is to go beyond just being a school of organic agriculture; it had to form a community. It has far exceeded this expectation, accumulating myriad experiences, learning, collective stories and community links around it, all of which make us proud to have such a space as this in Móstoles, one that is already a benchmark beyond our municipality’s borders.

Today, the community of the Huerto en la terraza of the CA2M faces the challenge of opening up to new people without losing the drive to carry out research and experimentation to motivate those who are already a part of it. For this reason, during this course we will provide an opportunity to those interested in starting out in the field of organic agriculture and permaculture, at its most basic levels, without forgetting the needs and learning pace of those who have already participated in the past and who require other lines of experimentation that combine vegetable gardens, art and our immense capacity to create with our own hands. This year, the workshops will change their timeslot to Thursday mornings. We hope that this change will bring more people to our vegetable garden so we can continue to share and learn together.

Free admission with limited capacity.

In collaboration with Break the Cycle Transition Institute

In May several birthdays are celebrated in Madrid, and we are going to make a gift-tribute to our region. Through two workshops, the artist Clara Moreno Cela shows the public the process of her research on the identity of Madrid. In order for everyone to enjoy this activity, the first day is aimed at families, and the second and third days are aimed at teenagers and adults.

During the two get-togethers we will explore our relationship with the city through music, performance and games in workshops that aim to be a reunion with other people, and is also outdoor fun that makes the most of our terrace. A Chotistón to commemorate the festivities and traditional festivals – called verbenas – that are celebrated on these particular days. A celebration that also belongs to Móstoles – the 2nd of May – that has given us our name; a festivity we want to partake in as spring awakes.

On the first two mornings of May, we’ll create a show-gift to the city we live in. We’ll consider Madrid as a subject to pay tribute to through music, a show, a form of scripted madness. Madrid’s identity will be looked at from a folkloric and playful point of view during a two-day workshop, the result of which may be presented – time permitting – to friends and family.

1st MAY: 10:00 –14:00h | 2st MAY:10:30 – 13:30h

Workshop by Clara Moreno Cela.

Clara Moreno Cela (1993, Madrid) is the daughter of woman who is a bookseller, artist and cultural mediator. Her work bounds between drawing, performance and music, and she loves using literature as a starting point for the creative process. Her solo musical project, called Clara te canta (Clara Sings for You), brings all her passions to light in a straightforward punk way. She likes producing pieces using everyday things and pours her energy into thinking about the function of intuition in Art, the relationships between different species, and supermarket conversations.

Sweet Fever is a choreographic proposal by the artist Pere Faura, based on the iconic movie Saturday Night Fever. It will be a choral piece in loop in which prolonged repetition shifts between faithful execution, modification, deformation and complete disfiguration while, at the same time, it will strike up a dialogue with other theatrical elements like video, music and lighting, which re-signify this iconic choreography.

Potential participants are invited to enrol in this workshop, which will be run by Faura himself. The end result will form part of the Sweet Fever experience, the piece that will bring the third edition of the “El cine rev[b]elado” season to a close on Sunday 25 February.

Aimed at all those interested in dance, the body and performance. The group of collaborators will include between 15 and 20 people. Don’t forget to bring sports shoes.

Admission free, during workshop hours.

The CA2M’s roof garden has been up and running for seven years, a time during which we have lived through an intense process in which many people have taken part, making it a meeting point predicated on working together and sharing know-how.

Since its beginnings, the roof garden was conceived as a space that would go beyond the limits of an organic agriculture school and would form a community. This goal has been fulfilled. Today, the roof garden is the focal point for a group of people who have accumulated many years of learning, enjoyment and coexistence based on the practice of agroecology and permaculture, the recovery of traditional know-how and learning from peasant farmers and a reflection on the challenges of sustainability.

Today, the community formed around the roof garden at CA2M is taking on the challenge of opening up to new people without forgetting the research and experimentation that motivates existing members of the community. For this reason, this year we will be giving an opportunity to all those who are people interested in learning more about agroecology and permaculture, at a beginner’s level, without ignoring the needs and rhythms of learning of the members who have been active since the beginning and demand more specific workshops with advanced contents. For this purpose, during the first part of the year, the workshops will be divided into two categories: beginners (*) and advanced (**). We will also work in two different schedules, to give more possibilities to people who, for personal or working reasons, cannot attend in conventional hours. 

In collaboration with Instituto de Transición Rompe el Círculo.

More information on actividades.ca2m@madrid.org,  on (+34) 912760225, the reception desk at CA2M or at the Rompe el Círculo association. 

PROGRAMME OF ACTIVITIES FOR THE ROOF TERRACE GARDEN

PROGRAMME SEPTEMBER - DECEMBER 2020

ROOF TERRACE GARDEN WORKSHOP (CA2M)

11 September 11:00 - 13:00 | Recovering the kitchen garden **
After the parenthesis caused by the pandemic, we will return to the roof garden and begin tasks of recovery and maintenance.

18 September 17:00 - 19:00 | Starting an ecological kitchen garden *
We will show you the basic principles of organic agriculture and we will begin to prepare seedbeds for the autumn. In addition, we will carry out the usual gardening tasks proper to the month of September.

25 September 11:00 - 13:00 | A kitchen garden in all dimensions **
We will create and place elements in the garden that will allow us to use the space of the roof terrace both horizontally as well as vertically, giving it a more uncultivated look and at once making it more welcoming.

2 October 17:00 - 19:00 | The square-metre kitchen garden *
We will learn new cultivation methods that will help us to maximize production in small spaces. A very interesting workshop for city dwellers who generally do not have large spaces where they can plant.

AGRO-ECOLOGICAL WORKSHOPS (GABRIEL CELAYA SCHOOL)

9 October 11:00 - 13:00 | Gardening in terraces **
We will work with different raised terrace systems and create spaces for planting during autumn in the school garden.

16 October 17:00 - 19:00 | How to make good compost *
We will learn how to make a compost bin and lay the foundations for the production of compost as a key element in our agroecological system.

23 October 17:00 - 19:00 | Creating an aromatic herb spiral I (* and **)
A spiral of aromatic herbs, as well as being a unique and aesthetically pleasing system of cultivation, helps us to understand the specific needs of each plant and how to create the necessary microclimates to grow herbs with very different needs in the one place.

30 October 17:00 - 19:00 | Creating an aromatic herb spiral II (* and **)
We will continue learning how to grow in spiral and will plant the chosen species.

SUSTAINABLE FOOD WORKSHOPS (LOCATION TO BE DECIDED)

6 November 17:00 - 19:00 | The pandemic: the boomerang effect of a diet that destroys the ecosystem (* and **)
We will get this new module underway with a current topic. This year is different. A virus has severely challenged our health, economic and social system. We have discovered that our purported dominion over nature has serious and irreversible consequences. In this session, we will explore in depth how the pandemic is connected with the environmental crisis and the role our unsustainable diet plays in all this.

13 November 17:00 - 19:00 | Eating better to look after the planet (* and **)
In a double, theoretical and practical, session we will first take a panoramic overview of global food production, differentiating industrial production from agroecological production. Afterwards, we will share recipes to help us enjoy new healthier and more sustainable eating habits.

20 November 17:00 - 19:00 | A chestnut celebration (* and **)
Popular festivals in the rural world have always been based on wisdom and respect for the rhythms of nature. In this session, and by means of a castañada, an autumn festival based on chestnuts, we will call to mind popular celebrations based on reciprocity, joy and sustainability. In addition, we will share recipes using chestnuts and other nuts.

27 November 17:00 - 19:00 | Do we know what we eat? (* and **)
The food industry has become so removed from natural processes of food production that today we do not know what the food we eat actually contains. Some of the goals of this workshop will be to look at how to analyse labels, which products are less healthy and to debunk certain ideas on supposedly healthy foods.

11 December 17:00 - 19:00 | A zero-residue Christmas (* and **)
Christmas is a time of the year when wasteful consumption gets out of control. In this session we will think together about alternatives and make sustainable gifts that will allow us to reduce the environmental impact of this holiday season.

18 December 18:30 | Healthy Christmas recipes (* and **)
We propose a workshop with recipes so that our holiday celebrations will be healthy, sustainable and economic and at once very enjoyable. Because it is possible to eat well and surprise family and friends without helping to make Christmas a small environmental disaster.
