Class Description:
This class is meant to combine intelligence and creativity, awareness and harmony, intuition and aesthetics. With an active mind, and through a moving body, we will explore the concepts of space, weight and fluidity, in order to find some functional dynamics and a deeper knowledge of our structure and unity.

While experimenting these concepts and clearing them by occasional and guided improvisations, we will also study some combinations and sequences which, through the use of gravity and ground, will let us enjoy new qualities of movement.

Leaving the memories of old experiences behind, the students will discover new ways of facing their techniques through different space levels – floor and more – without forgetting lightness and freedom.

In this workshop, we will start by working on contemporary dance technique that can be applied in the latter half of the workshop. During the composition module we will work with material from Stefano Fardelli's repertory, practicing a sequence from his Indian creation titled 'From "I" To "A"' by Eleven Movements. Using the same principles Stefano used to create the choreography with the Indian dancers we will work out a new choreography. The participants will use few tasks for creating their own material and so a new sequence alone and in couple can be composed.
