Nuova X is the professional dance program directed by Tom Weinberger, in collaboration with NOD, based in Turin designed to function on high intensity.
Each quarter, the program will involve a preselected group of dancers in two different creations with two different choreographers, each lasting five weeks.
This structure has the specific objective of providing dancers with the necessary tools to become a more skilled collaborator within a creative context and to develop a flexible mind as well as a creative one
The program’s emphasis is on giving ample time for a meaningful process, providing the opportunity to dive into and learn from the choreographers’ methodologies and creative practices.
Our goal is to cultivate an environment for a mindful educational journey, creating room to raise questions and space to challenge our physical and performative skills, while encouraging vulnerability and growth.
