“If you want to know my name is Alessandro Rivellino. If you want to know me better just forget it. I am dancing and teaching that dance is the teacher, for a long period. Time is an experience of time, I am walking slowly with the rhythm of the heart. My body is half heart. I love to jam and I feel contact as practice. This is what it is.”

About the workshop:

How to run with eyes closed?! This workshop will open the field for the dance to happen with trust and surrender for the forces that lead and crosses the bodies. How to fall in love with the dance, again and again?! Thin slices of presence can include layers of attention that can deeply open dancing. Light an soft.

Arriving from the somatic approach this work brings attention to arrive and develop an available listening body, with bases where the forms can arise as a consequence of being, not as a predictable path. How the body can fit the container? As water does?
