AXIS IN DA HOUSE - When the Groove meet the Axis Syllabus

13-14 July 2019

Turin, Italy

Sara Parisi

Inhabiting music styles starting from a body mechanic organization approach in the landscape of HIP HOP, House, Funk, African and Brazilian dance. 

Surrounded in a soundscape of rhythmic elements and musical colors, how can the body be present, expressive and rearrange itself on the different layers? This research investigates our interaction with gravity, with rhythm, with others, and with the meaning of "feeling comfortable" in our own body,our first HOME ..  We will dive in a dense meeting zone between feeling, sensing, managing, suggesting and letting happen, to blossom into subtle and surprising virtuosity that the intrinsic poetic of our body can give us. The central role of physical parameters and individual organization strategies opens up a wide range of "arrangement variables” for a coordination initially dictated by aesthetic codes. We will focus on how kinetic energy can propagate through body structures and how to store potential energy in some parts to play in expanding our expressive modes in multiple aesthetics.

The Axis Syllabus information archive will facilitate a deep reading of the movement provide bio-mechanical references for adapting stylistic choices to individual possibilities.
