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.

The Polyrythmic Body live wks in Thessaloniki

Lorenzo Gasperoni – live concert

Francesca Pedullà  solo - masque blanche

Morning Training :  x1 class 10€ / x3 classes 25€

  Axis Syllabus WARSAW SERIES
Posted by: administrator - 05-16-2019, 12:00 PM - Forum: AXIS SYLLABUS EVENTS - Replies (1)

I am very happy to inform you that the very first systematic training in Axis Syllabus will be launched this autumn in Warsaw. 

You will find more information here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1988208521302553/

and in the description below. 

With kind wishes, 

The idea for this program comes from a desire to bring interesting and profound approaches to movement to Poland where the demand is high but many disciplines haven't been discovered yet.

More info about AS:

Training consists of 7 modules, hapenning from October 2019 to May 2020. Workshops will be taught by certified AS teachers with huge experience in the pedagogical field.

The program is a whole which means that the people who want to take part in every module will have a priority. Participation in single workshops will be possible if the full group doesn't gather.

4-6.10 – Frey Faust: "Butterflies and Zebras" Axis Syllabus Alignment Fundamentals

15-17.11 – Francesca Pedulla: Time Curves. Negotiations between internal and external rhythms – Collectivity

13-15.12 – Baris Mihci: "Less is more" - force economy and coordination

10-12.1 – Diana Thielen: Getting hip - from overwhelmed to inspired: how an inquiry of the pelvic girdle, hip joint, SI-joint functions and pelvic floors unlocks our movement potential

28.2-1.3 – Antoine Ragot: Mixed Movement Arts "From constraints led practices to Dancing"

18-19.4 – self-practice weekend with no teacher

8-10.5 – Kira Kirsch: Move me tender – the alchemy of sequencing

The detailed description of workshops including hours and the bios of teachers will be presented in the comment section below.

VENUE: Warsaw Dance Department, Palace of Culture and Science

PRICE: 550 euros if the deposit of 200 euro is transfered until August 15 and 650 euros afterwards.
Price of a single workshop is 125 euros.

QUESTIONS & REGISTRATION: Andrzej Woźniak; ej.posluchaj@gmail.com

Dettagli su morning training e workshop a seguire

Conversazioni fra centro e periferie

Guardo al corpo  come una complessa architettura, sensibile e dinamica in  cui ogni momento, dall'azione funzionale al gesto espressivo, è il risultato di continui adattamenti a condizioni interne ed esterne.

Attraverso gli strumenti offerti dall’Axis Syllabus osserveremo come le informazioni che provengono dall’ambiente possono essere rielaborate dalla colonna vertebrale  e come piccole rotazioni e  cambi d’angolo possano essere amplificati da braccia e gambe.
Da dentro a fuori, da fuori a dentro…da intimo a estroverso e viceversa…una conversazione continua.

Le lezioni sono  rivolte a danzatori, attori, musicisti, professionisti, amatori del movimento e a tutti coloro che sono interessati a sperimentare un'accurata coscienza del corpo e le sue potenzialità espressive fra centro e periferie.  



Studi anatomici creativi

Attraverso l’esperienza chi usa il corpo come strumento, chi si muove, accumula un sapere difficile da esprimere, toccare o definire.  Nello stesso tempo è esposto a un sapere più palpabile, attraverso lo studio delle scienze che si occupano del corpo umano: le diverse anatomie, la fisica, la biomeccanica l’antropologia, le discipline terapeutiche…
Anche se apparentemente incompatibili questi due  tipi di sapere hanno un ovvia e profonda influenza reciproca.
Come si relaziona ciò che è palpabile  a ciò che è impalpabile?
Invece che dogmatico e normativo lo studio anatomico può diventare creativo e lasciare spazio alla soggettività?
Mi piace pensare a uno studio anatomico in cui il corpo è nello stesso tempo soggetto e oggetto dell’ indagine; un portale di accesso all’archivio di memorie antiche e recenti che sono iscritte nel corpo.
Immagino che attraverso il movimento il corpo riveli la sua poesia intrinseca, mentre risolve il conflitto fra passato e futuro che io vedo come presente.

Durante il percorso offrirò stimoli pratici e teorici con l’obiettivo di creare uno spazio condiviso per cercare, confrontarsi accumulare e condividere esperienze e muoversi insieme…..

Le lezioni sono rivolte a danzatori, attori, musicisti, professionisti e amatori del movimento e a tutti coloro che sono interessati a giocare con le percezioni legate al corpo  in movimento e le sue potenzialità espressive.

Dettails on the morning training and the workshop below

Conversations between center and  periphery

I see the body in motion as a thinking, dynamic architecture adjusting and re-adjusting inner relationships and parameters, calculating distances and directions, calibrating the never-ending paradox between resisting and letting go.

During the classes we will play with the dialogue between center and periphery. We will look at how the axial body can re-channel the input from the environment and how small rotations and angle-shifts can be amplified by the arms and legs.

From in to out…and from out to in…a continuous conversation…



creative anatomical studies

Through experience and dedication, movers accumulate knowledge, knowledge that is difficult to express, touch or categorize. They are also exposed to seemingly palpable knowledge from the study of the sciences that investigate the human body; various anatomies, physics, biomechanics, anthropology and the healing arts, among others.

Although they might appear incompatible, these two kinds of knowledge have an obvious and profound influence on each other. How can the palpable relate to the impalpable?

Rather than dogmatic and normative, could the study of anatomies become a basis for intuition, for inventive inquiry and creative research?

I would like to think of an anatomical study where the body is both subject and object of the inquiry; an access gate to an archive of ancient and new memories that are written into the body's process of inventing itself. I imagine, that movement reveals the body in it's intrinsic poetry, while it is solving the friction at the interface of the past and future, what I think of as the present.

During the seminar we will work with both theoretical and practical stimuli, find time to discuss the process, do and observe individual and group improvisations, and of course we will dance together!



Dance artist, Axis Syllabus teacher and independent curator. Fascinated by human relationships and curious about successful, unsuccessful and unfinished dialogues, she makes the body the subject and the object of her inquiry. Based in Berlin, but always in movement, she choreographs, performs and teaches throughout Europe, Israel, the USA, Canada, Brazil and Benin.



In Roma again, to keep on training and stay tuned on a consonant work with the Axis Syllabus vision:
(an)atomic expression: quando la danza incontra l'anatomia
with Emanuela Vitale
monday and friday from 13:00 to 14:30
at Scup
via della Stazione Tuscolana 84
