intensive composition lab merging body and nature
with rossella canciello, roberta ricci, stefania petracca 

the project:
embodying landscapes is a project already realised in 2021, created to turn the pandemic-imposed limitation of using essentially open spaces into a resource and a starting point for research. The aim of the project is to create an architecture of dance in close connection with natural and urban landscapes, in which the participants themselves will engage. It also intends to accompany different artistic realities into a moment of dialogue with the territory, considered as an important and necessary aspect of making art.
This is done by proposing situations of exchange, sharing and comparison open to the public.
The project is supported by the Goethe-Institut Neaple and it will
continue in a Summer Intensive one-week lab in the wilderness of the Itria Valley near Ostuni (Puglia, Italy), while the Berlin edition will bring together the urban environment with the city art scene.

the workshop
The work is based on instant composition, an improvisational practice that focuses on composing in the immediacy of the here and now. It pays close attention to the relationship between body, time and space, thus creating a greater awareness of the creative process in progress.
It will be explored and analysed how the body and the sound can transform the space and how it can transform them. The body will become a new sonic instrument and a specific tool for a choreographic score in connection with space and time. Simultaneously, it will investigate the body’s new abilities to produce a dance vocabulary inspired by a receptive, intuitive, playful and instinctive attitude.
It will explore the poetry of the body within the performative frame.
