Workshop with Silvia Pezzarossi
24-26 June 2022
From 24 to 26 of June 2022, within the framework of the Erasmus+ program Here and There, Hat – Performing Ecologies, the second workshop for the Greek group will take place by Silvia Pezzarossi.
The aim of DIVING BODIES workshop is to explore the relationships of the physical and emotional body within urban reality and how they influence each other. Through a physical and sensory guided improvisation session we will discover and explore the wide range of movement qualities inside the body. Once the latter embodied they will become our toolbox for creation within the urban context: Starting from banal everyday situations we will let our bodies merge with urbanism and give birth to different physical states alluding to absurd situations and imaginary characters.
Bodies who resist, who fall, who melt… vibrant bodies and bodies suspended in time.
Fragile and powerful in their singularity as in the gyre of the group.
Silvia Pezzarossi is a dancer, teacher, choreographer and massage therapist of italian origin, based in Belgium where she lives since several years. After a long training in ballet dance Silvia discovers and studies contemporary dance first in Italy then in Switzerland and finally in Belgium. While collaborating with several artists and choreographers she begins to develop her own language and artistic universe which prompt her to create her first creations and performances for the theater as well as for urban/site specific spaces. Rich in different experiences, teachings and artistic influences, Silvia develops her own pedagogical practice of dance improvisation based on movement qualities, physical states, images, the theater and the absurd. Thus she gives life to DIVE. Silvia teaches DIVE in various artistic realities of Brussels but has also traveled to Turkey, Italy, France and soon, Greece.
