Composition in Contact Improvisation
A workshop about dance and the things in it that are visible and invisible.
Vision is our way of seeing things. We will experiment with vision and stretch our ability to see from safety to aesthetic pleasure.
We will also look at what happens if vision is not our only way of looking and seeing. We will learn to trust this knowledge with our eyes open and closed.
We will practice CI and its relationship with the composition of space, time and place.
We will work with time and understand movement principles.
We will discipline the capacity to stay focused in the chaos and spontaneous in the clear boundaries of the form.
I am interested in seeing dance from the point of view of time, quantity, space, dimensions, pressure, gravity, temperature.
Like baking a cake.
Or calculating the weather.
Or telling fortune in the coffee grounds.
We’ll research the questions:
What is visible, predictable, teachable?
What is hidden, unpredictable and unteachable?
Can we see a jam as an art work in progress?
How does a witness influence a dancer? And how does a dancer influence a witness?
We will always start with ourselves and return to ourselves through dance, awareness, attention, silence.
CI is a perfect way to research different questions about dance, creativity, living through whatever is there. We invite you to walk the ladder from “real” to “magical” and back =) Our rivers will climb mountains. Life will surely become clearer!

“DANCE ON THE NATURE – NATURE OF THE DANCE”
Angelika Donij & Leonardo Lambruschini
We wish to create the space to really give participants to express them self in different forms. It is truly possible to open door for subcontinent mind to come on stage and to be understood. It is the best to do it in such safe conditions as Villa Gaya in Toscana on the nature. We hope the movement, dance, panting, writing can to satiate our body, refresh emotional stat, to clean the contact with itself.
We feel privileged to be part of this process and ready to share our presence, knowledge, passion.
