This is what it's all about.
We want to bring life into a little mountain village - and celebrate it! Indeed, one of the main motor of Clima Clowns is the concept of «regeneration», that is to say: the recovery of lost forces, or the utilization of already used.
The program Festival BORDEI IN FESTA will offer from 29.04.-01.05. social, cultural and agricultural activities in the beautiful village of Bordei, Ticino.
Join the workshop-weekend, which teaches you south american dance steps such as Cumbia and Capoeira. Go for the guided wild herb hike, taste and get introduced to our green and eatable heritage. Or try out new tricks and tools from the circus world in our circus-corner. Camp in the woods, overlooking the summit of Gridone. On Sunday you can watch at every corner a short performance of former and current students from the Accademia Teatro Dimitri (the physical theatre school, 30 minutes from Bordei) and a small market in the village center attracts with scents and handmade products. Marvel at the unique architecture of the village, discover art installations that tell you about the past. Enjoy the traditional Polenta in a typical Ticino Grottino and listen and dance to live-music from local bands as long as you can.
For us, it’s about letting the local connect with the current.

BORDEI IN FESTA
The event BORDEI IN FESTA came from the thought that rural areas offer space and can host «diversity». This is why we want to create a unique platform to meet, celebrate and exchange through different activities. Students, saisonners, mountain farmers, neighbors, guests, oldcomers and newcomers - will be reunited for a joyful common moment.
Bordei has been rebuilt from ruins through decades of social projects. The result is a potential and beautiful place in which one can practice community in order to understand the big social questions, such as - how do we make rural habitats habitable again? The village is representative of the phenomenon of rural exodus and it is also a placeholder for a vision of the future: protecting, maintaining and passing on the cultural heritage.
