About the Course
This year, for the second edition, we'll collaborate with musicians within the workshop to create a final performance conceived for a particular site specific. The creation will be part of the summer event calendar of Cisternino, the town close to Ostuni, and performed in a specific place inside the city with the support of the municipality on the date : 21.07.2022
All workshop participants are free and welcome to be part of the public event.
We invite you to join us in this wonderful experience full immersed with nature.
Once again this year we chose the beautiful and wild nature of CASINA SETTARTE (Ostuni,Puglia-Italy) for our retreat.
The first part of the day 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.
The second part will be focused on the creation work.
We want to investigate and support the poetry of the body within the performative frame. 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 in the Town of Cisternino.
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.
