Movement & Voice 
Techniques of Instant Composition

with Paolo Cingolani

Instant Composition is a method to create movements, sounds and words in an intuitive and spontaneous way. During the workshop we will work from the physicality of the body to the meaning of the words. Sounds, pre verbal text, logics of grammar, cohabitation of movements and voice will be some of the areas of study touched during the week.

The method proposed aims first of all on increasing trust in one’s own intuition and spontaneity, and then on the creative aspect of action. Through the participation of the body and the observation of the mind, the students will learn to create dances and poetry in the flow of the present moment.

Participants will be guided in the workshop through a progressive approach that starts from the simplicity of the individual act, to reach the complexity and richness of an instantaneous group composition.

Paolo Cingolani is an Italian dancer specialized in the art of improvisation and instant composition. His work is characterized by a specific training on intuition as the first tool to create dance and text in performance. Since 2012 he is a member of Allen’s Line company of Julyen Hamilton. Paolo has also dedicated to create performances with other artists, dancers, musicians and visual designers. His way to compose choreographies and characters on stage defines a clear poetic of time and space in the contemporary scenic arts. In this freelance context, he has performed extensively through Europe (2005-2020). As a teacher, he has developed his personal body’s technique resulting from the combination of Tai-Ji and Qi Gong with the principles of contemporary dance. Since 2006 he has been teaching in schools, universities and festivals all around Europe.


Contact Improvisation

with Leonardo Lambruschini & Consuelo Pacheco
Contact Improvisation, as a dance based on improvisation, pushes us to accept whatever happens in the present and transform it into an expressive creation.
Pay attention to what happens spontaneously, experiencing fluidity in a dance for two or more people within the improvisation.
The movement derives from a physical relationship that inspires an instant creation, that is, an improvisation.
Participants are invited to explore and move without resorting to sight, move following hearing, move and express themselves following internal and external impulses.
A child’s first relationship with the world begins with a hug.
An authentic and pure dance that welcomes our thoughts, the limits of the body and fears.
We will work following the fundamental principles of the I.C. on the relationship between weight to gravity, inertia and constant dynamics of a living body always in motion.

Leonardo Lambruschini – Italy
Contact, trust, movement are the central focus around which I develop teaching and practice, both for adults and children. Above all, trust in the present moment as a fruitful source of inspiration and meaning. I am attracted to places and contexts where various forms of art meet, communicate and create something new, that transcends languages and differences. I am also the co-founder and Art Director of Spazio Seme – International Cultural Arts Center in Arezzo (Tuscany, IT). There, we create opportunities to research, organize, and manage festivals, intensive workshops, performances, artistic productions, and residencies. I develop and lead classes for children (ContaKids, PlayContact).
I teach C.I for adults and students, in Italy and abroad. I feel very attracted by the nature and expansive dimension of travel. I have taught at festivals and done intensive labs in India, France, Portugal, Greece, Israel, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Denmark, Russia, Moldova, Georgia, Northern Ireland, Mexico, Argentina, Chile and Brazil.
I am one of the organizers of ItalyContactFest –

Consuelo Pacheco – Chile-Italy
Dancer, Teacher and somatic researcher. Since my childhood, the Dance experience has accompanied my work as a human being.
I started practicing C.I 12 years ago, and during this time my curiosity about the phenomena of the movement continues to expand and invites me to continue to explore unknown places. I am interested in exploring the dimensions of improvisation and the virtues of creativity that can be applied to plasticity and creativity to dance. In my curiosity about the phenomenon of being alive, in recent years I have ventured into the universe of contemplative arts and somatic practices, studying the Alexander Technique in greater depth. In addition, in my daily life I spend a large part of my time lovingly and respectfully raising my daughter Amanda, researching the Montessori and Pikler methods to delve into psychomotor evolutionary development in early childhood. Currently, I am studying the Ecology of Childhood Training at the European Institute of Perinatal Mental Health.



with Andrea Vazquez-Aguirre
This innovative somatic method was created by Alexander Munz, founder of MAISON MUNZ. In this class, you will experience the benefits of spiraled sequences in the floor that promote elasticity and vital resilience within your fascial system. The class is guided verbally, and the student is empowered to work with their own capabilities.
