Fortunately in Barbarano there are no cases of COVID-19. Normally all the seminars and shows are presented in the big Cultural Center Church St. Angel where up to 50 people can train. But as a precaution and in case we are not able to use the room in St. Angel, it will only be possible to invite a limited number of people according to the regulations of the Italian Government. Equally the same conditions will be in place in the space outdoor (Flying Dance Platform).

To participate in the workshop-audition you must bring proof of a negative Covid-19 test result that has been done 2-3 days before arriving in Barbarano (at one’s own expense). Additionally, on the day of arrival in Barbarano another test will be carried out (this test will be free).

About the workshop: Elio Gervasi

The workshop proposes different forms of research based on various dance vocabularies and improvisation methods. The dancers will study how to bring in and develop their own vocabulary and individual style. After the warm up (based mainly on floor work) we will start with the movement research by reducing conservative patterns.

We will continue by focusing on specific themes such as space, gravity, collision, and other topics that will be proposed during our DAILY JOURNEY. We will apply these ideas firstly to solo dance material and follow this with group work, which will focus on different formations (duo, trio and larger groups). Here we will also work with contact improvisation and partnering.
Continuing, we will combine the previously created material and feed it with new information, adding something more each time in the so-called “choreographic engine”. Through this application and the distribution of a number of fixed set movements, we will compose and generate new choreographic aspects and images.
The workshop will end with a public showing on the outdoor stage.

More detailed information will follow after the invitation.
