PERFORMARE PROJECT

19/21 June> “While I disappear” with Elisa Pagani
20/23 June> Peter Jasko and Clara Furey with “Deep Movement Consciousness” and “Constellations”

Three projects research that aims to create two brand-new pieces related to this year festival’s theme: PER FARE ISOLA/ “to create an island”, that will be performed during the Festival.
The festival has the mission of cultivating new artistic exchanges, therefore, “Performare Project” wants to be solidly connected to this spirit.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
Performare project is open to dancers, actors and performers who have a strong propensity to contemporary performance and who want to experience artistic cooperation, in order to create two short performances that will be presented to the audience at the end of the research.

CONSCIENCE OF DEEP MOVEMENT || PETER JASKO
The workshop is more of a creativity class than a dance class. Because of its nature, it is an open level class for professional dancers and movers alike. Rather than teaching form, the class focuses on expanding one’s artistic self-awareness. The class begins with exploring qualities such as rebound, flow, fractions, and shaking to reach a state beyond self-judgment and self-limitations. Here we will work within the gap between power and fragility. After waking up the body and mind, we will focus on isolations and polyrhythmic exercises to root back our focus. We move with the intention of never going back, developing one’s fearlessness and ability to trust each instant’s potential to lead somewhere. We give ourselves the necessary time to tune into our body’s intuitive intelligence to solve movement paradoxes that emerge during the research process. We will facilitate each other’s exploration by working in pairs and in groups, as well as individually. These simple open structures are simultaneously technical tools and tools for composition. We encourage the dancer to playfully explore their inner workings and personal language that result both from everyday lived experience and learned movement patterns. By opening up creative curiosity, we enhance our movement fluency. In turn, we will develop strategies to explore the space between continuity and disruption of movement ideas by naming patterns for those interested in building choreography.

CONSTELLATIONS || CLARA FUREY
We will sing together a mantra. We will work on listening to one another and to feel intuitively the different harmonies produced by the group. We will work on becoming one organism, on developing echolocation strategies, on using voice to shake the bones and send vibrations into each other’s bodies. In this workshop, singing is used as a choreographic act, a somatic tool to open internal spaces in the body and mind. We will deepen our sensorial listening as we work on the constant transformation of energy. It’s an invitation to feel the impressive weight of space.

WHILE I DISAPPEAR || ELISA PAGANI
