When: Saturday 05 and Sunday 06 October time 10am to 4pm

Gabriella’s work starts from long molecular research on the body, its perceptive states, the different dynamics of weight and the relationship with one’s desire.
In the workshop a physical and discussion space is created – where the known and the unpredictable can interact and intertwine.
The methodologies of choreographic creation and work on the body are mainly based on the generation and the radical deepening of different states in the performers and students bodies/minds, digging deeply into the individual complexity.
The performer is involved in a process of research and “gestation” with a high degree of responsibility, according to non-formal elements, but rather following specific physical and mental principles to arrive at the creation and definition of an original physical language.
The physical “grammar” is composed of different techniques
Gabriella’s work brings out the dancer’s body
as an “omnivorous” body, which feeds on different layers of knowledge; a
sort of physical and mental desire to embody the world in all its
aspects, concordant and discordant.
The objects of desire – the space, the images, the techniques, the partners, the perception, the thoughts – mixed up by the student in a molecular earthquake, give life to an intense physical language extremely rich in its complexity.
