Intensive contemporary dance seminar
End of workshop performance and final party | Saturday 13 July from 7.30pm
10 -14 July 2019 | OCRA Montalcino (Siena), Italy

Permanent School of the Living, in collaboration with Samuel Nicola Fuscà, organizes an intensive and residential contemporary dance workshop for a group of young American dancers, a stimulating experience that combines professionalism and different disciplines in a unique and fascinating environment.

The pedagogical proposal is based on site-specific research, in close relation with the place that hosts it.

The course aims to provide the group of young artists the opportunity to explore dance both as a motor discipline and as an art, through attention to perception, of one’s body and physical space. The knowledge of space through the awareness of one’s own weight, in a constant balancing act, provides the tools for a greater awareness of one’s subjectivity.

The days will be marked by a series of classes led by dancers / choreographers from different backgrounds, who will deepen the study of movement, choreographic thinking and site-specific improvisation through their own methods. The evenings will be dedicated to the study and theoretical exchange with external interventions. The group dynamics will be stimulated and strengthened by the possibility, for the participants, to share spaces and moments of conviviality; giving a high social value to the experience.

The workshop will end on Saturday 13 July with the final celebration during which it will be possible to watch the site specific performance.
