Poetics of Movement
A basic dance phrase will be presented as a “key phrase”. Then, with several different tasks for improvisations, will be de-structured and transformed in relation with space and time.
The movement phrase is going to be treated as a spoken phrase, where movements can be isolated as “words” and used to compose new phrases. The random in the phrase is created by improvisations or composition, trying to use even small parts of movements as “syllables”, to build new movements.
Through exercises and games, focusing on attention and reaction, we will underline the pathway to an interesting creative moment, which is rooted in mental relaxation and a physical openness: a willingness to play, being totally engaged in what we do and see.
Francesco Scavetta proposes a personal approach to contemporary dance, based on Release technique and Contact Improvisation, influenced by his experience as a dancer, choreographer and as well by his practice of Tai Chi Chuan, that links a deep transformation of the body to delicate "poetics of movement".
"I believe that in dance, it’s more important to be able to forget, than to remember."
