Corso Rosmini 58, Rovereto (TN)


Maxime Freixas e& Francesco Colaleo

Body research workshop on the notion of gravity. The workshop is structured by modules of improvisation and choreographic writing. The thread of the research will gravitate around the principles of rotation, orbit, fall and gravitational and emotional attraction.

A series of choreographic partnering modules will be proposed, focusing on an acrobatic risk-taking, on the tonicity of the bodies and on the possibility of exploring different practices of movement in an anatomical and functional way, searching for new ways of approach and coordination.
