The morning sessions will propose Piergiorgio's personal approach to mixing flying-low, capoeira and release technique.
These will be very challenging physical sessions mining to explore ones own limits, building strength and stamina and combining playfulness, creativity and a wide spectrum of physical states with set material.
The afternoons will be a shared proposition between contemporary dance and physical theatre. The body will be explored thorough a wide range of creative tasks across movement qualities, emotional/physical states and theatrical expression.
The body will be analyzed as an instrument with which we can play together.
Elements from acrobatics, partnering and release technique will be proposed and offered as tools to improve our ability to play theatrical situations.
The sessions will explore concepts of neutral and emotive body; real and fake emotions, energy levels and their application to theatrical situations, and applying rhythm into movements and thoughts.
During this workshop everybody will have the opportunity to confront themselves as individuals and in group challenges.
The creative work will be fast paced, there will be no time for judgement and the focus will strongly remain on enquiring how we can use the body to answer stage’s situations and to better understand ourselves as performers.
Be ready for an intense and powerful journey!
