The workshop ASINARA – DANCE AND LANDSCAPE will be realized in the Asinara Island that is a National Park – Marine Reserve. It inserts itself in a cycle of workshops that Senza Confini Di Pelle holds from 2016 on sensorial perception in relation with natural elements as an instrument of choreographic research; the workshop Stromboli Dance and Perception realized in 2016 and 2017 is a part of this cycle as the first edition of Asinara.

The workshop, that is 6 days long, is structured in a residential and intensive manner, in order to offer to its participants the opportunity to live the Island in its wholeness and to know its specificity.
The particular environment of the island of the Asinara Island allows to enter in contact with the natural elements in a unique and suggestive way: the wind, the sea, the rocks, the flora and the fauna of the National Park of Asinara, contribute together to create the perfect ground for a work on own body that, starting from the sensorial perception, carries to dance in osmosis with the natural ambient.

The workshops hours will be combined with tours of the island in order to know its history, morphology, flora and fauna.

During its 6 days, the workshop will be conducted in different hours and in different places of the island, to totally experience the peculiarities connected with the moments of the day and with the different areas.
So the workshop will take place in the early morning, during the night, before the sunrise or at the sunset to catch the multiple games of colors, the diversity of the shadows, the variations of temperature, investigating the influence of these elements on the organism and its movement.

Great importance will be given to walking, considered not only as a movement in the space or as a going through, but as a deep knowledge practice and embodiment of surrounding environment.

During the workshop, dance, theatre and yoga techniques will be used and also original methodologies elaborated by the time by the performing art practice of Senza Confini Di Pelle.

The workshop days will follow the natural elements indication in relation t the specific places of the Island; for each specific element will be chosen the appropriate place to study it. The group will work on the sand, in the sea, in the vegetation, on the rocks, the cliffs, to experiment directions, dynamics, strength and rhythm of natural elements.

The dance work will be conducted in osmosis with the environment, trying to transmit a deep awareness to listen and respect the nature in all its vulnerabilities and magnificence.
