Her latest publication focuses on the documentation of dance for the Mind the Dance dance teachers.
It is about what is wtritten in the body and what can be inscribed in other surfaces.
This workshop is based on consideration, analysis, inquiry and movement as allies for understanding and implementing choreographic writing.
Starting from the creation of movements, we search our diaries so as to create pre-choreographic structures and compose together.
We look at the history of dance to find proposals from other creators that we can use as inspiration and content on which to base our own proposals and ideas.
The workshop will be in two parts, one where theory and practice combine to create a collective imaginary from which we move on to the second part, focusing on the creation and coach of each session.
