These 6 days will be dedicated to ourselves, to our physical well being. Entering gently into our own anatomy, giving to the body the possibility to reconnect with itself. Over the days the morning training will alternate between three different disciplines: Pilates, GYROKINESIS® method, Movement & Body Awareness.
In the afternoon we will focus on the creation work.
We'll explore and analyze, through instant composition skills, how the body and the sound can transform the space and be transformed by it. The body will become a new sonic instrument, a specific tool for a choreographic score in connection with space and time. Simultaneously, we'll investigate the body' s new abilities to produce a dance vocabulary inspired by a receptive, intuitive, playful and instinctive attitude.
We want to investigate and support the poetry of the body within the performativeframe. The aim of the workshop will be the creation of a site specific composition work in a wonderful space immersed in nature, such as the south of Italy. Personal mentoring is offered throughout the week, in addition you have the opportunity to share this experience during an evening performance. The work will be recorded and the final result given to all the participants to the lab.
The workshop is open to fellow improvisers, dancers, actors, performers, artists and all who are interested in expanding their own imagination and knowledge on improvisation, in the beautiful surrounding of Itria valley.
