Uncivilize your body!

Online training on Mondays

Our individual way of walking, standing or breathing is a result of how we have been conditioned throughout our lives – basic movements, but always different! In this stage training we will set the focus on our daily habits, try to understand, break, develop and use them for the stories we want to tell. Parting from our individual bodiy we will crash into the unknown on the search for your inner idiot!

Physical stage training mixed with dance, yoga and Thai Chi.

Increasing movements

Possible offer

In daily life our bodies are not used to unusual movements and that's why we think, we are not able to do them. But it's not true: In this training we want to find out, what our bodies are really capable to do. Let's surprise ourselves: what will happen if we dare to step out of our comfort zone? Looking at our body in a different way by focusing on separate body parts and working with images that make us move, to free ourselves from "the little judge in the head"

The Afro-diasporic body

Online training on Thursdays
7:00 - 8:00 PM

With the rhythm of the drums, perception and "empowerment" (self-determination) of the body can be discovered in this course. Images and movements of the Afro-Brazilian symbology and its rhythm can be experienced. Movement (dance) in the context of the diaspora has always been helpful to feel one's own identity and ground. This is reflected, among other things, in the Brazilian culture in which the theater educator and choreographer Barbara grew up.

No previous experience is required! All are welcome.



The poetical body

Possible offer

The human body contains the informations of all ancestors in its DNA: the intelligence of plants, the qualities of animals, the connection system of mushrooms.

The poetical body is a workshop that awakens the source of poetry, which has shamanic roots. We are going to implement our "Listening" to the variation of the music. We go back to our birth and dissolve energy blocks, with the goal of becoming more and more magicians and creators of our life and artistic paths.

The poetical body is a workshop developed by Simone Galli with the knowledge of CineTeatro Roma.



Nature imPULS

Possible offer

We explore our connection and belonging to Nature. In a one-hour physical - theater training, we will work with butoh, yoga, object manipulation and much more. Inspired by dancing trees and singing stars, we find our bodies transformed into wilderness in the physical dialogue between humans and nature.
