TUNING INTO THE WILD 2019
E’ un seminario esperienziale volto a sviluppare consapevolezza e creatività attraverso il movimento.
Si svolgerà nello scenario della terra rossa di Puglia che sarà la musa ispiratrice della nostra danza, selvaggia e delicata. La natura sarà la nostra maestra, ciò che farà risuonare in noi tanto la parte istintuale, il selvatico, quanto il senso di gioiosa compartecipazione col tutto, luogo in cui la nostra identità potrà espandersi fino a farci sentire di essere noi stessi parte del mare, del cielo, di una nuvola passeggera, di un filo d’erba che trema al vento.
Franco svilupperà la sua proposta a partire dai principi che informano la pratica dell’Aikido, il Tai chi-Chi gong, la Contact improvisation, il Body work (massaggi energetici), la terapia Craniosacrale Biodinamica e la Deep Ecology . Ciò costituirà la base ispirativa per potersi abbandonare nel gioco del contatto con se stessi, con i partners e con la natura circostante.
Oltre all riserve marine e ai campi di ulivi secolari sono previste escursioni in luoghi poco antropizzati dove poter attivare la nostra natura sensoriale e apprezzare la vitalità degli spazi selvaggi. Il seminario si rivolge ad attori, danzatori, musicisti, a chi interessato alle terapie alternative, alla Permacultura, alla Deep Ecology, all’Ecopsicologia e a quanti vogliono lasciare spazio alla meraviglia e alla danza celebrando l’anima del mondo.

From silence to breath. The voice is the natural gesture I do to communicate, as the movement is. A body needs his voice, and the voice needs his body, do I perceive the path of my breath? where does my breath go and how does it become voice? How does my body move toward the voice?
During the workshop we will work on the active listening of the voice connected to the body, and on the relation with the space and with the others. The aim is to create a sound gesture starting from the silence.
We will make breathing excercises with voice and body, exploration of sounds, and improvisation in solo, duo and groups.
Each participant is asked to bring a small poem, or just sentences, or a little songs text.
Italian singer, sound artist, composer and performer based in Berlin. Her work is multidisciplinary and focused on the connection between voice, sound, field recordings, body and improvisation.

Art and life, sound and movement, the common line is the improvisation which leads her to research and to create new worlds.
“Everything spawns from the urgency I carry inside myself, and from the need to create an artistic dimension I belong to, an intimate and pure dimension devoid of any sort of strict rules, and shareable with whoever wishes to be part of it. A search towards the essence, leading to a continuous discovery of new worlds, real and unreal, deformed, imaginary, mystic, irriverent and extreme worlds. Tuning in with the outside, with space and events, actions become ritual, short circuit, a flow of alteration”.
