Lago Dance Fest presents the second edition of the site specific contemporary dance workshop inaugurated last year by the swiss choreographer Marcel Leemann.
Leading the 2019 edition will be the dancer, performer, choreographer and teacher Laura Moro. Lago’s spaces, streets, houses and natures will be the stage of a unique performance site specific.
The landscape we, from far away, feel as an unicum is always a variegated mixture of species and subspicies. The richness of a natural environment lies in its complexity and in the specific diversity of its elements. If biodiversity is a characteristic to be nurtured and preserved as something which adds value to a place, then why don’t we consider diversity in general as a resource, even and particularly when it comes to human beings?
It’s in this vision that The Landscape Body looks at the motor and
creative language of each of us. Through the act of dancing as a creative exercise, we dive into a choral experience which is itself the landscape. A meeting place, rich in its diversity where at every body corresponds a unique and irreplaceable creative language.
Nourishing the interest in the originality of the individual motor sign and in its unique and personal identity, contemporary dance focuses on this research as an important opportunity to create a point of contact, above the logos.
The Landscape Body it’s a methodology in the making: a series of guide lines based on the gesture transmission, in a continuous evolution.
Starting from dancing as an access point to a personal but universal language to the possibility to communicate and create, overcoming the verbal dimension, the landscape body is composed by exercises and motor ‘duties’ in order to develop the kinetic creativity of each dancer involved.
The Landscape Body is developed
starting from ‘ICP Il Corpopensante’ a system created by Laura Moro as port of the Movement Research Course at SNDP, School for New dance Development – Theater School, Amsterdam, as a tool for professional dancers and choreographer. Giving the possibility to get in touch with the inner originality and the personal body language of each of us, the method evolved over time with several projects of the artistic collective Art(h)emigra Satellite, dedicated to community dance.
Laura Moro comes back to Italy after twenty years abroad, following the trail of the Teatro La Fenice-Venice commissions.
