Play Full Body
Technical exercises and improvisations with a clear framework will be the starting point for a work in group, couples or individuals. Participants will look for creative impulses that, when released, offer us new possibilities for achievement. During the workshop the particopants will observe how, sometimes, extreme qualities maintain a balanced tension; that the tension attracts attention and that many times silence speaks.

TOWARDS is a cycle of intensive workshops that include physical praxis, evening lectures, video screenings and live performances. TOWARDS offers the occasion to explore the work of renowned international artists, gaining an insight into their practice and methodologies as well the philosophical and poetic worlds that trigger their creative research. The project started in August 2018 with Julyen Hamilton’s workshop: Making Dances – Compositional and Poetic Richness.
