Silvia Gribaudi




11.00 - 12.30

Dance Cultural Centre


Masterclass for professional dancers

This workshop offers an experience of the poetic dimension that Gribaudi reasearches between the vivacity and presence of the body, where the cathartic dimension of humor and play are embodied in the expression of the body and of the gesture in each person.

During the workshop there will be an exploration of the vital body, alternately paying attention to the ability to have fun and to movement technique. Through a proposal mixing contemporary dance training and clown, with a focus on the value of the fall, imperfection and mistake are considered an expressive opportunity.

Key questions this workshop will seek to address are: How to revitalize physicality with self-irony and the dynamism of dance and humor? How does dance change the perception of the body in this playful atmosphere?
