NOD is proud to invite you to the Intensive 2-week workshop with Bobbi Smith. The workshop is included in the International Contemporary Dance Program 3rd trimester, and open to external dancers, only applications for the whole period will be considered.

Centro Danza Royal – Via San Marino 89/14 Torino, Italy

When: May 21st – 30th

Jene’s work explores the intersection of physicality, virtuosity, spatial poetry, and desire. With a focus on extremes: delicacy and explosiveness, simple and detailed, personal and political, pain and pleasure. She choreographs situations where we are able to see people behave, rather than perform. Asking artists to execute a series of tasks so difficult that it requires them to move beyond the confines of “performing”. She believes this unfiltered exposure reveals a truth in the body – the duality of masculine and feminine, where dominate and passive are married, and love and hate coexist.
The workshop will start with Gaga class every day
