Application deadline: 2 September


The Course, which is free of charge, is part of the Societas Institute for Research and Applied Art, which brings together all the theoretical and empirical activities that take place at the main facility, the Comandini Theatre in Cesena.

The Course is intended for Dance Interpreters, Choreographers, Performance Interpreters and Creators, Teachers of Movement and Directors of Workshops for Educational Departments.

The ’Diabatic Dance’ postulates an integral dance, i.e. one that is entirely saturated with the psychic, and not only athletic, presence of the performer. Therefore, it indicates neither a style nor a method.

The Course is conceived as a specific exploration of the temporal aspect of dance, and the concept of moment -which indicates the smallest movement -provides the basis for a specialised study that defines and analyses dance starting from the first motor impulse. Observing and paying the utmost attention to all moments in dance that seem minor -because they are transitory- is the aim of this course.

Teachers: Claudia Castellucci, choreographer, dramaturge and teacher who works with Sissj Bassani, choreographer and dancer; Giovanni Campo, choreographer and dancer; Andrea di Serego Alighieri, researcher in Poetry and Metrics; Yasmine Hugonnet, choreographer and teacher; Joe Kelleher, Theatre and Performance scholar; Snejanka Mihaylova, artist and teacher; Francesca Proia, choreographer, writer and yoga teacher; Cindy Van Acker, choreographer and teacher; Simon Vincenzi, choreographer and teacher.
