ProART Festival 2018

Contemporary dance

Inspired by the release technique, Nicola propose to we explore ground support, weight transfers and body alignment. While maintaining a certain sensory availability, we will work the qualities of fluidity and lightness without losing the effectiveness of muscular work. With sequences and exercises we will experience various body coordination, the weight in the vertical and the spiral in the movement. We will give space to creativity and imagination through elements of improvisation, always privileging listening to the working group and awareness of the space in which the movement is inserted.
