Serious Play improv workshop with David Hernandez
SERIOUS PLAY / Improvisation Practice
Diving into a daily practice centred around improvisation and the concerns connected to improvising. Exploring methods, honing skills, diving deep with playfulness - connecting to the senses and how they nourish us in improvisation. Considering readability and collaboration- performing practice, practicing performing, scoring, and free wheeling. It is a daily rigorous but fun work in order to gain experience and develop the skills of being an improviser. An example of a working day could be starting with an guided open warm up session followed by some more targeted investigations of themes and tools ending with improv sessions where we can implement some of the skills and tools we explored as well as engage in feedback and dialogue based on what we have seen and experienced.

Contemporary technique class with Vittoria De Ferrari Sapetto
The training “Artylogica” proposes different kind of exercises, engages different technical abilities and passes through structured dance sequences and physical theater guided improvisation. The aim is to question our creative habits and find new pathways to enrich our movement vocabulary. The class is influenced by martial arts and investigates the relationship between body, dynamics and architectural space. Participants are invited to explore theatrical aspects of their physicality and approach movement through a specific “state” rather than perceiving it as a simple technical task. Artylogica is Vittoria’s creative translation to searching a logic into the art of dance; an utopia considering its constant state of change. Within the boundless scope of logical choices, what matters is the one which suits each one of us.
