An immer­si­ve retreat with Simo­net­ta Ales­san­dri and Ada­li­sa Men­ghi­ni.

A uni­que com­bi­na­tion of skill deve­lo­p­ment work­shop and a retreat. We con­duct a deep immer­sion into the work crea­ting a plat­form for per­so­nal renewal and deve­lo­p­ment in the uni­que land­sca­pe of Sou­thern Ita­ly. This work­shop is aimed at tho­se inte­re­sted in dee­pe­ning their kno­w­led­ge as a dan­cer, impro­vi­ser or per­for­mer, as well as anyo­ne who wishes to con­nect with them­sel­ves and others throu­gh move­ment.

The mor­ning ses­sions begin with the prac­ti­ce of body aware­ness throu­gh the Fel­den­krais Method and the prin­ci­ples of Neu­ro­phy­sio­lo­gy. Both are gen­tle and power­ful approa­ches to move­ment that dee­pen the per­cep­tion of how we move, thus increa­sing the qua­li­ty of coor­di­na­tion and balan­ced postu­ral tone, as well as crea­ting owner­ship and plea­su­re in our dan­ce. From this groun­ding, we grow into solo impro­vi­sa­tion, expan­ding out­ward into dyna­mic, more com­plex move­ment. We will revi­sit and reveal the fun­da­men­tal skills of Con­tact Impro­vi­sa­tion, such as: giving/receiving weight, fal­ling, lea­ning, fol­lo­wing and fly­ing. The after­noon ses­sions inte­gra­te and ari­se from the­se con­sti­tuent ele­men­ts. We will focus on the per­for­ma­ti­ve poten­tial of the body, expan­ding our ima­gi­na­tion to explo­re spe­ci­fic com­po­si­tio­nal tools and impro­vi­sa­tio­nal sco­res, inve­sti­ga­ting spa­ce, time and rela­tion­ship. We will prac­ti­ce obser­ving and fol­lo­wing the emer­gen­ce of spon­ta­neous group com­po­si­tions, tuning into the balan­ce bet­ween order and chaos.

The discus­sions will regroup, re-fra­me and anchor us fur­ther, con­tex­tua­li­sing our expe­rien­ces by sha­ring them with the col­lec­ti­ve kno­w­led­ge of the group and guests. Again­st the bac­k­drop of the worl­d’s chal­len­ges, we will jour­ney toge­ther to emer­ge with new capa­bi­li­ties and a sen­se of renewal. Con­text: The dan­ce hall itself is inte­gra­ted into the land­sca­pe, built to invi­te bree­zes in the mor­ning and eve­ning, thus allo­wing phy­si­cal work even in the heat. The­re are bea­ches near­by and the retreat orga­ni­za­tion inclu­des group excur­sions.

Simo­net­ta Ales­san­dri and Ada­li­sa Men­ghi­ni have built a tea­ching prac­ti­ce based on their expe­rien­ces rela­ted to the orga­nic deve­lo­p­ment of impro­vi­sa­tion and com­po­si­tion using the soma­tic approach of the Fel­den­krais Method. They each have more than 35 years of expe­rien­ce in the fields of dan­ce, per­for­man­ce and well­ness – span­ning tea­ching, per­for­ming, cho­reo­gra­phy and event pro­mo­tion – and all of this informs their work toge­ther. They com­ple­ment and sup­port each other in this jour­ney of lear­ning and renewal.
