One journey. Three stops. Three workshops.
Two journeys for professionals.
One journey for everyone.
An investigation.

The body, the movement. From a grammar to a poetics. From the relationship with space, with time, with weight to the relationship with the other. From stasis to dynamics. From animal to human.
Alessio Maria Romano conceived a workshop divided into three phases through which he wants to offer a glimpse into his pedagogical work on movement.
Thanks to a deep work on the body through the Laban/Bartenieff Analysis, the three “stops” along the journey aim to be an investigation on one's own movement, on the desire and the absence of the other, on one's own idea of dance and on the relationship between all these aspects.
The first two "stops" are designed for professionals whereas the last one is meant to be an encounter, an exchange and perhaps a transfer between professionals and non-professionals. The journey can be undertaken until its final destination or end at any intermediate station along the route of travel.
The rest is discovery and adventure.

Who does it interest?
The third stop is open to all levels.
It is not compulsory to attend every event and none of them is preparatory to the others.
At the end of the three stops' journey on Monday 9th May at 6.30 p.m. there will be a sharing open to the public and followed by a short discussion.
