I like to think about the workshops I hold as OASIS, a place of salvation and manifestation of nature. I’ve chosen this name because I believe an environment with no judgement and full of chances makes you feel full of life, like when you reach an oasis surrounded by the desert.
Within this practice the sense of belonging to a community and the continuous dialogue with the space are principles of movement and creation. I propose a way to stimulate the awareness of the performers involved through exercises based on rhythm and the perception of the space. I utilize the weight of the bones to suggest a natural expression of the body.
The focus of my research is the idea of fragmentation of movement. I propose individual and group exercises through guided improvisations and a continuous feedback between myself and the performers.
My idea of the workshop is based on the perpetual exchange of energies and physical/emotional sensations. An environment of continuous questioning enriches the personal experience and layers everyone’s movement vocabulary.
There will be a final composition part of the workshop where we will apply the principles examined, discovering how much the quality of the movement can change thanks to the OASIS experience.
