Laura Simi will facilitate a class beginning with a physical and mental preparation followed by floor work and sequencing through space leading a combination of movements which will eventually lead to structured improvisation.
We will work in close relationship with live music played by Maurizio Ravalico which will be key to guide the class stimulating imagination and creativity, exploring sonorities and vibrations with the body. Fluidity, rapidity, rhythmical repetition, volume of the body and volume of sound, presence will be some of the themes explored. We will fill the space with an intense, free, ferocious and poetic dance.
LAURA SIMI originally from Tuscany, she now lives and works in Caen, Normandy where she has founded her own company company Silenda with Damiano Foà.
