The work dynamic includes periodic meetings involving study, critical analysis and practical research. Through reflection and investigative exercises, each member of the group deepens her own personal project, which is built between individual vocabularies and collective agency, promoting a process that is the result of dialogue and questioning. From this polyphony Broca Group make their chorus.
