Encounters in Movement
Emma Scialfa | Rossella Fiumi


The choreographers and independent artists Emma Scialfa (MotoMimetico) and Rossella Fiumi (ALEF\Caravajal15 residenza dinamica) have formed a cultural partnership in a project to share creativity, knowledge, affinities and differences of their individual artistic methods. Their aim is to pass on their know-how and acquired experience in the field of the Performing Arts and movement to professionals and amateurs, students, tourists, patrons.
The population of Linosa is also invited to participate in the practical encounters to improve their psychophysical well being, develop creative and expressive capacities, both individual and as a group, to facilitate their awareness of themselves in a language that may not be verbal.

The project Azione Linosa! is based on a partnership between Emma Scialfa and Rossella in a context of relationships and mutual support of the life-long experiences of the choreographers, aimed at re-qualifying the Culture of the Body as a vehicle of awareness, well-being, health, and last but not least, an occasion for getting to know one another.


Relationships in dance
One of the objectives in the investigation of movement to be dealt with in this workshop is that of making the participants more aware of their bodies and its functions through a variety of techniques including: introduction to movement, Floor Work, improvisation, Contact Improvisation, Stretching and Release Technique.
By studying exercises in movement the aim is to provide the participants with the practical tools required in order to learn to interact with the other/others, taking on unexpected movements, facing up to their individual limits and perceptive habits (as well as those of others) and to gain an understanding of the inherent possibilities of the body and increase its capacities for awareness, integrating thought and action so they will move together. It is addressed to all professionals, amateurs and adult students.
The first hour will be open to all: adults, children, amateurs or simple citizens can participate in the lesson, joining the group of participants in the workshop, an occasion to get to know each other, and for cultural exchange and integration with the “peoples in movement”.

Improvisation Techniques
In this workshop work will be concentrated on the observation and exploration of the perceptions of bodily movement, a fundamental aspect of Improvisation.
The purpose, via specific exercises, is to make the participants aware of the part played by movement in facilitating group harmony, in interacting with the surroundings and in integrating these qualities in Improvisation. This is also an attempt to produce a language based on the ability to make decisions that become actions – fundamentals of communication – and to organize in autonomy a dance or an ensemble of personal actions.
Some of the exercises in searching for this harmony furnish the communication tools that cross the boundaries of the various disciplines, and throw light on the practice of performance and the processes of dancing. Elements of Contact Improvisation are part of the workshop.
The workshop, addressed both to beginners and more experienced individuals, plans for an investigation of individual work, as well as in the duet and group work.
