Oct 30 – Nov 10, 2017
The program starts with an introductory week facilitaded by SMASH curator Alessio Castellacci, to foster an inspiring and supportive atmosphere.
The four following modules are divided into daily morning training and afternoon modules.
The morning classes (mon-thu, 2h) are taught by different guest teachers with the purpose of providing a thorough warm up, while introducing
the students to a variety of somatic movement approaches.
The four modules (mon–fri, 4h) focus on specific issues of contemporary performance. They are led by international choreographers who share with the group their personal research, vision and methodology with the aim of creating an open environment for artistic experimentation and critical discourse.
The final week of each module functions as an integrative space where the participants are invited to push their own artistic practice by developing a performative proposal related to the module's topic. This process is facilitated and mentored by the module's teacher.
The program includes an open studio week where time will be given to develop own research while working in self-organized ways.
