In a jungle of rhythmical elements, how the body could be actively expressive and arrange itself in to the different layers of the music? We will decline some of the tools to let the groove have us.. each of us. The central role of individual body parameters and organization strategy open a big repertory of variation and adjustments for the same coordination. We will look at how kinetic energy migrates through the structure and how to keep some potential energy stored in the body. We will dive in a dense meeting zone between coordination, feeling, intuition, limit, technical tricks individual poetry.
Dancer, performer, pedagogue and choreographer Sara Parisi is currently involved in artistic and cultural international projects in Europe, Benin, and Bahia (Brazil). Parisi graduated in Motor and Sport Science in Genova, Italy and continues to expand her biomechanical movement analysis skills through the Axis Syllabus system.
Her artistic path began to take shape in 2003, through study and collaboration with the Italian artist Francesca Pedullà, and evolved to date in various pedagogic and artistic projects in Benin and Europe. Having trained at Traditional Arts Academy “IAT GONG” (Ge,Italy), she constantly deepens her personal research on the interrelations between "tradition - code - contemporary" in performative arts languages.
