Surfing the rhythm

27-28 April 2019

Berlin, Germany

Francesca Pedulla , Sara Parisi ,


The workshop arises from a long-term research on West Africa and Hip Hop culture and dance.

In both those cultures music has a crucial role, suggesting accent, quality, muscular tone, acceleration /deceleration, delay and expressive articulation.

During the workshop we will use the anatomical and bio-mechanical tools offered by the Axis Syllabus as well as some basic rhythmical principles to find strategies to negotiate between our own inner rhythm and collective shared rhythms.

We will work with both theoretical and practical stimuli, do and observe individual and group improvisations, and of course we will dance together!

The workshop is open to dancers, musicians, actors, and to everybody who wants to explore a deep dialogue  with the groove…..
