Inclusive Practice workshop

Four days of study and development (from November 28th to December 1st) to create an inclusive dance that will be concluded in Mart’s spaces, where participants and audience will meet. Giuseppe Comuniello, Camilla Guarino and Stopgap Dance Company will be leading the works. On the occasion of the International Day of People with Disability, CID, International Centre for Dance, proposed to Mart, Modern and Contemporary Art Museum, to collaborate.
November 28th, 29th and 30th the workshop will be held in CID’s halls, while the last day, December, 1st, on the occasion of the International Day of People with Disability, the workshop will be inside Mart’s spaces to have a time of sharing of practices to the museum’s audience, who will be able to actively participate in a moment of exchange and dialogue.  
The workshop will have a first formative section, named In Ascolto (Listening), which will be led by Giuseppe Comuniello and Camilla Guarino. In Ascolto is a collection of practices that will focus on the perception of internal and external spaces, on the listening of others, of bodies and their possibilities. Participants will get to know each other through the body’s language and the encounter, trusting each other in the undertake of a physical journey that tries to develop thanks to imagination. A limitless plan of perception will be built, one in which conventional conception of space and relation with one another blend together.
The second research section, titled Inclusive Practice: the creative process and the didactical tools will be led by two members of the Stopgap Dance Company team. The activity will let participants know and deeply understand the approach and the creative and inclusive processes of the Britannic company. Everyday different research perspectives will be taken into exam: from the observational and contact capability, to the
choreographical techniques, and finally to an insight on the didactics.

Giuseppe Comuniello
Blind, dancer and teacher, he starts his journey in dance back in 2009 with the choreographer Virgilio Sieni, with whom he collaborates even these days. He worked for national and international choreographer such as Alessandro Schiattarella, Emanuel Gat, Emanuel Rosenberg and Michela Lucenti,; for the latter he participated in Bed Lambs, the winning show as best Italian production at the Danza&Danza awards.
At the same time he starts a journey regarding movements’ transmission through contact improvisation, on which he keeps workshop open to everyone thanks to the collaboration with MUVet in Bologna, the company Teatro Danzabile in Lugano, Uffizi Gallery and Florence’s Sert (the center for addictions’ recovery). Since 2016 he collaborates with Oriente Occidente Festival in the international network on accessible dance. His last works are Danza Cieca, developed and performed together with Virgilio Sieni on the occasion of Matera as European Capital of Culture for the year 2019, and Lonely Planet, the first study on a research work about perception who premiered with the support of Teatro Comunale in Ferrara on the occasion of the festival “Society in theatre”.

Camilla Guarino
Dancer, she approaches ballet and contemporary dance since she was a child, she then integrates her studies with theatre and choreography workshops held by Claudia Castellucci, Jacopo Jenna, Teatro Valdoca, Muta Imago, and Armando Punzo.
She becomes interested in the work of Virgilio Sieni in 2015, after a workshop on journalistic critique held by Massimo Marino and Altre Velocità. She graduates from her master’s with a work on the Ten Years of the Academy about Virgilio Sieni’s gesture art; she is then involved as an interpreter and an apprentice in the work of the artist. In 2015 she collaborates with the Dance Biennale in Venice and then in 2018 she participates in it with the project Biennale College ASAC cared for by Elisa Vaccarino. She is part of the association BlaubArt – dance webzine, which oversees dance in the area of Bologna; she also holds workshop in kindergartens and primary schools. She is currently taking a Master Degree in dramaturgy at the Dramatic Art Academy of Silvio d’Amico, while together with blind dancer Giuseppe Comuniello she is working at the first study of research work Lonely Planet.

Stopgap Dance Company
Britannic company led by Lucy Bennet, Stopgap Dance Company’s mission is crystal clear from the name: stop the gap, no differences, no divisions. Integrating disabled and non-disabled artists, Stopgap is committed to productions in which the human interdependency, strength and vulnerability intersect with poetic realism. The inclusive choreographies are entrusted to dancers who have worked together for more than a decade, and they are backed up by new generations to get over the concept of repertoire company and with the aim of facing always new artistic challenges both for the theatre and the outdoor spaces. “Working together thanks to an integrated dance – Lucy Bennett explains – means discovering new dance terms. We use our different physiques, experiences and learning modalities to find alternative ways of expression and movement, with the awareness that our differences are our means and our method.”
