The aim of the workshop is to improve your improvisation skills in creating dances on stage. The proposed material includes a clear focus on the body’s anatomy as well a deep observation of the cognitive processes behind any movement: from the perception of body in motion to the aware choices that the performer must take in the immediacy of the present moment. Through an active use of imagination and intuition, the participants will learn how to use the body in time and space to create compositions and motion poetries. Spontaneity and creativity, thinking and sensing body are some of the topics touched during the workshop. The classes are open to dancers, actors, musicians and anyone who wants to use the body’s movement to make dance pieces and performances.

Paolo Cingolani is an Italian dancer specialized in the art of improvisation and teacher of Tai-Ji and Qi Gong as well. His work is characterized by a specific training on intuition as the first tool to create dance and text in performance. Since 2012 he is a member of Allen’s Line Company of Julyen Hamilton. In the last years, Paolo has also dedicated to creating performances with other artists, dancers, musicians and visual designers. In this freelance context, he has performed his pieces extensively through Europe (2005-2018). As a teacher, he has developed a body’s technique resulting from the combination of martial art with the principles of contemporary dance. Since 2006 he has been teaching instant composition classes and workshops in various festivals and schools in Europe and the USA.
