Masterclass with Francesco Scavetta "A Surprised Body"

Masterclass with Francesco Scavetta "A Surprised Body"

The title of this workshop, "A Surprised Body", defines a metaphorical space - the image of a body in a constantly alert state, able to surprise itself, escaping from a habitual daily body and from any kind of routine. A body less focused on acting than on reacting, which forces us to avoid mental approaches. Through exercises and games, focusing on attention, reaction and different improvisation tasks, we will underline the pathway to an interesting creative moment which is rooted in mental relaxation and physical openness: a willingness to play, being totally engaged in what we do and see. We will explore how dance phrases can be de-structured and transformed treated as spoken phrases, where movements can be isolated as “words” and used to compose new phrases. The random in the phrases is created by improvisations or composition, trying to use even the small parts of movements as “syllables” to build new movements.

"I believe that in dance it is more important to be able to forget, than to remember." Francesco Scavetta

Born in Italy, Scavetta studied at National Academy of Dance of Rome, graduated in Theatre and Performing Arts and post-graduated in Sciences of Communication. He is the founder of Vitlycke-Centre for Performing Arts, Sweden (www.vitlycke.org). Scavetta has developed a reputation on the international dance scene for his wildly inventive work, playful humour and subversive intelligence. Scavetta’s theatricality has often been associated with the atmosphere of a weird dream or a playful world of a child: strange, funny, poetic and at the same time surprising. Scavetta has held workshops at P.A.R.T.S./Brussels, IMPULSTANZ/Wien, Henny Jurriëns Foundation/Amsterdam, SEAD/Salzburg Experimental Dance Academy, Greenwich Dance/London and at many other places in 44 countries around the world.
