Residential workshop of dance and perception at Stromboli island (Italy, Sicily) led by Dario La Stella and Valentina Solinas.
The 4 base elements (air, water, earth, fire) will be the core of the study. The peculiar geological environment of Stromboli allows entering in contact with the base elements in a unique and suggestive way. Wind, water, igneous rock and fire contribute to creating an ideal terrain to perception work as a stimulus to dance in osmosis with the natural environment.
Where: Stramboli Island, Sicily, Italy
When: 01 – 06 September 2018
Deadline for application: 12 of August (Early Bird 30 of June)
Each day will be divided into activities of “meditation”, “dynamic” and “expression”.
In the meditation practices, the work is focused on 5 sense perception in relation to wind, sea, earth and fire.
The dynamic activity is composed of exercises of warming up and stretching of muscles.
The work will be both personal in the own process of osmosis with the environment and in relation to the group.
In some days we will work in the night, in other days in the first morning before the sunrise or at sunset.
Dance, Theatre and Yoga techniques will be used during the workshop as also original methodologies elaborated by the performing practice of Senza Confini Di Pelle.
The perceptive exercises are used to open the body to its sensorial faculties, putting the sight in second order: the perception of 4 base elements will be stimulated by sounds, scents, surfaces.
