The teachers & The tools

The Axis Syllabus is a repository of useful information regarding the use, preparation, treatment, structure, function, limits and potential of the human body in motion. The Axis Syllabus is sincere support for a collective effort towards individual health sovereignty. It is constantly reviewed, modified, updated and monitored for the truthfulness and usefulness of health and well-being. It is not intended to instruct, but to inform, in the understanding that the only kind of consent is informed and in the recognition and respect of consent as the modern moral basis for all social interaction. Axis Syllabus yes  consolidates at the end of the 90s thanks to careful and passionate work  by the choreographer, dancer, pedagogue Frey Faust e  to the contribution of an international network of artists, therapists, scientists, movement professionals who over time have gathered around Frey and who continue to nourish research.

Play-Fight is a physical practice that emerged from Bruno Caverna’s research and multidirectional experience that amalgamates the cooperative qualities of contact improvisation and partner-dance, with the refined principles of confrontation of capoeira and internal martial arts. Through an exploration that goes beyond physical movement and the study of shapes, Play-Fight is a real training in observing and listening to oneself  in relation to one’s own expressive needs and constant confrontation with the other, a practice that reveals the multiple aspects and infinite possibilities of human interaction in all its creative potential. Its main teaching is to maintain one’s physical integrity and a calm and resilient mind in the face of moments of potential risk that arise spontaneously during an interaction that combines play with struggle.

IL MULINO  [ Pian di scò – Arezzo ]
We are a nest of woods and flowing water, at the foot of the Pratomagno mountain.
We are a house that opens to host events of dance, movement, healing and sociality, to share its simple and wild nature, to offer time for listening, sharing, care and silence, time for learning and growth.
We are a platform immersed in the trees and the rock, a fresh stream, a space for camping between terraced vegetable gardens and woods, with a dry bathroom and showers.
We are an experiment in spontaneous and intuitive permaculture, a seed of change, a widespread community.
We are meals prepared with love and real, local ingredients, we are spring water to quench our thirst and the shade of trees to rest, we are a garden of messy and free flowers.
We are a meeting place between different worlds, born to multiply peace and beauty.
