with Lorenzo Gasperoni

"The relationship between music and dance is dialectical in nature. Dance presupposes music and is also conditioned by it, but at the same time dance influences or even controls Music as it takes possession." Luciano Berio.

Music and Dance are sister art forms that both describe or articulate time and space. Possibly the first scenographic elements that a Dancer must confront are sounds and silences, while the plasticity and dynamism of the human Body in Motion are likely to have been among the first Inspiration for melody and rhythm. 
The objective of this Workshop cycle will be to provide dancers with the analytical means to a more profound and rewarding relationship with Musical material, and more acute ability to listen and hear. A large part of the session will Focus on rhythm, because the first relationship of the dancer is the mapping of time through Pulsation or frequency, whether regular, irregular or Abstract.  
Please bring a Piece of Music you would like to analyze.
