COSA PUÒ UN CORPO? Research Lab

Genova / March 12th to 21st, 2020

The project is organized by Rete Danzacontempoligure and Axis Syllabus International Research Network in collaboration with Teatro della Tosse

Info&Registration: cosapuouncorpo@gmail.com

We are glad to offer a second edition of our research lab about gathering, organizing resources and using them to share information on movement practices.

Our aim is to create a research context where together  we cultivate resources, expand the tools offered by the Axis Syllabus, compare different approaches  in order to develop creative and logical transmission tools and strategies both for pedagogical and performative purposes.

Keywords: perception, perspectives, empathy, listening, transmission, negotiation, navigate the unexpected...

This year we set up a lab which develops in two sections: 

1. Resources I make  from Thursday 12th to Sunday 15th

2. Resources I use from Monday 16th to Saturday 21st 

It is possible to participate to the whole lab or to one single section.

RESOURCES I MAKE - Section 1 Thursday 12th to Sunday 15th

Facilitated by Francesca Pedullà, Barış Mıhçı, Lucia Palladino

In this first section we will focus on appropriate and effective strategies to teach, communicate and transmit information about the moving body.

A guided class offered every day by one of the facilitators will serve as a sample to start our investigation.

Moreover we will offer a frame which includes assessment skills, proposals for teaching, games and improvisation for enhancing attention and offer space to try and discover. 

The lab is open to anyone interested to expand their movement transmission skills for various disciplines and curious to experiment with different communication modalities.

RESOURCES I USE- Section 2 Monday 16th to Saturday 21st

Facilitated by Frey FAUST, Lucia Palladino, Francesca Pedullà 

In this second section we will use the tools developed through researching, teaching, communicating and transmitting information as lenses to look at Choreography. 

The study focus for this second year is an excerpt from the multiverse of Frey Faust's choreographic essays.

During the workshop a first moment is offered in order to warm up the body, a second is dedicated to the study of the choreographic material and a third one to its analysis.

A performance at La Claque - Teatro della Tosse - will give us the possibility to test and  share with the public our process.

This is as well the opportunity for us to create a study group in order to develop a further research and performative project departing from this material in 2020/2021.
