Performance and dance, a project based on the active participation of academics, dancers and the audience

Through a practical-theoretical lesson open to all and based on simple actions that from everyday life achieve the status of dance, the meeting stimulates non-conventional audience participation.

Introducing the audience to the performative idiom through its history and the experience of ordinary action, we re-evaluate the everyday and its gestures within an artistic context and rediscover that performance art belongs to the history of humanity.

Each lesson is animated by an expert in dance, a dancer and by the audience itself and is composed of a practical-theoretical part and one of “physical transmission”, rethinking actions we know well but never stop to think about and discovering in an informal way the key passages in the history of dance and performance.

with Rossella Battisti and Roberta Racis

Walk, run: moving, on the stage as in everyday life. In the second encounter, abandoning the comfort zone of the equilibrium achieved when stationary we chose to break away from Laban’s icosahedron in infinite directions. Perceiving our unstable position in space and amongst others and having acquired the necessary awareness, we discover how to become performative even when crossing the road.
