Everything is already there
Presented by Marcello Palozzo
During this year’s intensive, the triad “preparation – imagination – application” will be presented.
We will start by investigating different body resets: from re-tuning the tension originated in different districts of the body to expand diverse qualities of the limbs, all the way to conditioning a great variety of neglected tissues, like those of the skin. To follow, the theory of games will serve as an underlying framework for understanding problem-building methodologies within an urban scene.
Peeking few meters beyond the horizon
Presented by Ilakkiya Mariya Simon
A connecting red string among many relevant disciplines from all over the world is the capacity of a person to engage in long-duration ventures and bring them to completion. How fascinating it is to hear the stories of humans crossing the desert walking for weeks or swimming for countless hours to avoid a threat.
We will study the power of long exposure practices, from an anthropological perspective and through practical scenarios: hiking, seeking, balancing, and waiting. Observing the key values like patience and reciprocity, lost in modern times.
You will also understand the power of proper breathing.
Expect the darkness and gain all the treasures resulting from the confrontation with it.
Corners: the geometry of dance
Presented by Gianluca Bettio
Vertical and horizontal surfaces will be put in a relationship with our bodies to investigate principles of flow and rhythm. Expect innovative creative research, based on vectors, spirals, points of contacts, crosses, knots, and layers. It will aim at shedding some light onto the geometry of dance.
Be ready to jazz with the ever-present corners of a city and to explore all the options that they offer.
Starting from de Lavoisier’s axiom “Dans la nature rien ne se crée, rien ne se perd, tout change” (In nature nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything transforms), it’s easy to realize that potential for action is only limited by the personal capacity to visualize change and interact with space.
End this Intensive 2019 with a different perception of how to approach your surroundings.
