“A surprised body” 7th cycle

Companie/Coregraf / Company/Choreographer:
WEE/FRANCESCO SCAVETTA (NO/IT)

* Activitate din cadrul proiectului Laboratoare de formare profesională, cercetare coregrafică și scriere critică co-finanțat de Administrația Fondului Cultural Național.

Scopul este ca participanții să se concentreze asupra procesului de învățare: să se întrebe cum să învețe „cum să învețe”. După o primă parte dedicată principiilor de lucru, workshop-ul se va contura printr-o cercetare a mișcării și prin improvizații structurate, concepute ca o provocare conceptuală, dar și fizică și mentală; workshop-ul este legat de performance-ul „Surprised body project”.

My aim is to direct the attention of everyone, to the approach to the “learning process”: to question how to learn “how to learn”. The workshop, after a first part dedicated to ground the principals of the work, will articulate through a series of investigations on the movement and structured improvisations, intended as a conceptual, but also physical and mental, challenge and connected with the process of the performance “Surprised body project”.

Wee
Wee was established in Oslo (Norway) in the 1999, by choreographer and dancer Francesco
Scavetta (Italy) and dancer Gry Kipperberg (Norway).

Francesco Scavetta’s personal way to tell stories, mixing together theatrical actions and dance, is transforming along a constant curiosity for different forms of art. A distinctive feature of last performances is an integrated use of originally composed music, played live, and video art.Francesco Scavetta’s theatricality have often been associated with the atmosphere of a weird dream or to a playful world of a child: strange, funny, poetic and, at the same time, surprising.
The core of the research has always been to deal with fragility and paradox, epiphany and dream, empathy and surprise, avoiding narrative and physical cliché, questioning reality and identity with humoristic disbelief.
