Join us at NOD International Contemporary Dance Program, 2 weeks workshop led by Andrea Costanzo Martini.
Workshop included into NOD International Contemporary Dance Program and only open to 3 external dancers
Where: NOD Nuova Officina della Danza , Via Mantova 34 Torino, Italy
When: October 24th – November 4th
The workshop will be held according to the COVID -19 regulations. The number of participants is limited. First come first serve.
The workshop will be divided in two parts.
In the first part the students will explore and get familiar with Martini’s repertoire by learning excerpts selected from some of his classic works like “Scarabeo”, “What Happened in Torino” and “Trop”.
The goal will be to understand the choreographer’s language and style and to see how this resonates in their bodies.
In the second part of the workshop the participants will dive into real life choreography making through tasks, development of movement ideas and composition tryouts.
The research will focus into what makes a movement, a scene, a gesture interesting to watch and to interprete
The aim of this investigation is not so much the final product but rather the experience, in a safe space, of a choreographic process and its endless possibilities.
