SMASH #3 three-week module
morning classes

Peter Pleyer
Following the movement-meditation of DEBORAH HAY:
“The tower of babble:
there is not one thought
there is not one way”
This work will focus on different possible ways to warm up a dancers body by exploring information into dancing improvisational that were researched and articulated at the end of the last century of dance history.


Maria F. Scaroni
The bodywork I propose treats the body primarily as material: energetic, physical and emotional. The nature of the training is eclectic and sources from chi cultivation techniques such as Qi Gong and Pranayama, spine and limbs patterns explorations, hands on work and improvisational elements. I device journeys-like experiences, to allow the body to surrender to a state of presence, stressing the transformational potential of bodily matter and the proximity of this idea of ever changing device with the nature of performance practice. Duration, boredom and exertion are recurring tactics, whereas architecture, tracking material and immaterial structures is insisted upon to afford a more precise readability of space.
