Laboratory of contact improvisation and interpretation of time

lead by Emma Scialfa and Giorgio Rizzo


10-11 March 2012

Teatro Lari, Pisa


A RELATIONSHIP. Dramas and desires

A contact improvisation workshop in conjunction with a study of time and sound. Open to dancers and actors and to anyone who wishes to explore, through the poetry of movement, gesture and sound, around and within their own way of building relationships.  


The Techniques:

Contact improvisation, listening, the inner world, the being of matter, communicating through gesture, the grammar of time, the relationship between movement improvisation in contact improvisation and the usage of the rhythmic means.




First section: Two

The contact: compatibility, contrasts, duplicity and other dynamics directly linked to relationships that take place between couples. Listening.

Second Section: Group

Metamorphosis, settlements, balances and imbalances that trigger in each set. Organization and chaos. Listening.

Third section: Two and Group and their relation with the public

What changes within ourselves when we know we are being watched?

Development and elaboration of the two sections dealt with previously; the couple and the group in relation to the third party. The public. Listening.



First section: Identification of time

Time as musical and interpretative structure, schematization of rhythmic structures, identification of the quarters and of the first movement.

Second section: Listening

Listening to the time and frequency, the distinction between intro and musical theme. Listening and interpretation of high, medium and low pitched sounds.

Third section: The sound within the group

Discerning the single sound within a complete structure no longer separated, but within a complete melodic rhythmic structure. Identification and interpretation of a sound, subject to the structure of the musical movement and of the body.
