Sofia will be assisted by Adriano Popolo Rubbio & Paolo Piancastelli (dancers of Wabi Sabi), and will dive further into a movement research session….to offer a sense of the whole in a physical and sensorial way through the exploration and therefore the discovery of new possibilities with our bodies. In KOMOCO research, this practice takes the name of Kreaturistic Character (KC) as we connect to the creature that we are – that we just forgot about – which consequently brings more awareness to our unique artistic individuality to be expressed in endless ways through a series of games and guided improvisational tasks. The laboratory ends with the sharing and learning of sections from KC choreographic repertoire, which has been widely presented in Italy, Spain, Albania, Germany, USA, Hungary, Kosovo and Canaria Islands.
