23+24/11  The Polyrhythmic body with Francesca Pedullà and Lorenzo Gasperoni

Schedule: 10:30-13:30 + 15:30-17:30

The polyrhythmic body
Investigating the dialogue between music and the moving body
Live Music and live electronic: Lorenzo Gasperoni

The polyrhythmic body is a pedagogical project inspired by the relationship between polyrhythms and the dancing body in the cultures of West Africa and the Diaspora. In these traditions, dance and music are inextricably linked, in continuous dialogue. Mirroring each other, they come together in a single language that is in continuous metamorphosis.

In our proposal we merge the inherent wisdom of tradition with the latest studies in somatic practice, anatomy biomechanics and musical analysis with the aim to facilitate a deep intimacy between live music and the moving body.
Through experiment, guided improvisation, games and short dance phrases we suggest ways to gather skill and awareness, as well as engender and enhance creative expression:

Recognize a rhythmical structure
Move with or in opposition to the rhythm
Influence or be influenced by a rhythmic phrase
Compose your own rhythmical movement
Dance together without loosing the sense of self or personal style

The workshop is open to dancers, musicians, actors, and to everybody who wants  to explore  strategies for negotiating the body's inner rhythm and shared rhythms.
