From Individual to Collective Practices
This training is addressing professional dancers as well as performing artists with an established movement practice. The first part of the training will focus on body alignment by approaching simple movement patterns and observing their initiation sources and relation to gravity. It will be a personal exploration that, through few choreographed sequences and task oriented corporeal explorations, will propose a frame for a detailed investigation of the way we organize movement in space. In the second part of the training, I wish to connect from the personal perspective to the collective context of practicing together. By taking inspiration from my work Drifting#1, I will propose ways of layering multiple physical practices with the exploration of group dynamics. We will address questions of performativity and explore how a specific use of language can influence the way in which we shape our collective experience.
artistic practice is based on the idea of encounter which establishes a continuity between his activity as performer and the artistic projects he initiates. Alberto performed in the freelance scene as well as for theatre institutions in Austria, Switzerland and Germany (2005–2012), as member of Cullberg Ballet, in Sweden (2013–2015) and most recently in Mette Ingvartsen’s work to come (extended).
Since 2011, in his choreographic practice, Alberto gave particular attention to site-specific and cross-disciplinary projects. During the MA at UNIARTS in Stockholm (2015–2017) he focused his research on participatory strategies in performance. The latest creations are Do I look fluid? presented in Malmö in September 2019 and Drifting #1, a site-specific work for nine dancers presented in the Viennese Augarten park in June 2019.
This training runs from 16 till 19 December 2019.
