Workshop corpo, humor e danza

Silvia Gribaudi is a performer and choreographer who works with a focus on the social impact of bodies, whether they are professional or non-professional artists.
The workshop is an experience in the poetic dimension that Silvia Gribaudi reasearches between the vivacity of the body and presence where the cathartic dimension of humor and play are embodied in the expression of the body and of the gesture in each person.
During the workshop there will be an exploration of the vital body that alternates the ability to have fun and the attention to the movement technique through a proposal of contemporary dance training and clown with particular attention to the value of the fall, imperfection and mistake as an expressive opportunity.

How to revitalize physicality with self - irony and the dynamism of dance and humor?
How does dance bring the perception of the body and changes in this game atmosphere?

Silvia Gribaudi
Born in Turin, she has been active as a performer for quite a while. Her choreographic language crosses performing art, dance, and theatre, focusing on the research on body and on the relationship with the audience. Her poetics constantly resorts to dialogue and is embedded in the social and cultural framework where her performances develop. Her artistic language could be summarised as the encounter of dance with a raw, empathetic humour.
In 2009 she created A corpo Libero, a piece with which she won both the audience and the jury prize at the Giovane Danza d’Autore contest; the piece was also selected by Aerowaves Dance Across Europe, was presented at the Venice Biennale, at the Dublin Dance Festival, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, at Dance Victoria Canada and at the Festival Do Disturb at the Paris Palais De Tokyo, and also at the Santarcangelo Festival.
Silvia Gribaudi has been holding workshops in Italy and abroad as well as training projects at the Accademia Teatrale Veneta and at Theaterschool – Amsterdam School of the Arts.
From 2013 to 2015 she focused on body and nudity and started the research by creating performances such as: The film contains nudity (a project within Performing Gender) and What age are you acting? – Le eta` relative (an Act your age project).
From 2011 she has been holding workshops for Over 60 participants and has been collaborating with the Venice Università Ca’ Foscari, the Department for the Management of Culture and the Enterprises, in the projects ARTimprendo and Action Research Coreografie d’Impresa.
In 2017 she has been selected in Italy among the choreographers of the ResiDance Anticorpi XL Network 2017.
In 2016 and 2017 she directed and choreographed three different performances (My Place, Felice, e R. OSA_10 esercizi per nuovi virtuosismi), where the body of performers become the real protagonist, thanks to its expressive identity.
In 2017 she premièred in Vancouver, Canada, with Empty. Swimming. Pool, an Italian-Canadian co-production with Tara Cheyenne Frienderberg. The work was awarded the support of the Chrystal Dance Prize 2016.
