‘Universal discussion’

C&C Company, Carlo Massari will be sharing an intensive 2 days long workshop for professional and non professional dancer/actors/performers.
Worshop will be based on a physical theater training which is most representative of the company.
C&C language and research is built on a very concrete way to be in relation with another person in space, in movement or/and in dialogue.
To find real action and concrete movement, improvisation must pass by a long moment of contact research, which include an important physical warm up of body and mind. This class is followed by a long moment of contact improvisation with a straight direction to
put in the foreground relationship and the comparison.
We are trying to find an original movement that can make us dialogue with another body in a universal way. Trying to be read and understand by everyone.
