A body exploration from Sara Sguotti and Nicola Simone Cisternino
17-19 May, 2019
Wilhelminenhofstr 91, 12459 Berlin
The workshop is going to be a full 11 hours experience.
Sara and Nicola will work together, alternating a physical approach of the complexity of the body, with classes where the transmission of the movements will bring you towards an imaginary moved between rhythmical and spacial thematics. There will also be more free moments linked with the personal research of Sara and Nicola.
The theme of the workshop is Imagination. Nicola will use the improvisation research to go towards the relationship of frames that you create with the imagination in your mind, to be able to reproduce it with the body. Sara instead based her research on an emotional plan, starting from a concrete point, through practice, you will be guided to explore in sentimental states.
