DO YOU GET IN CONTACT WITH THE '' ANCIENT BODY '' OF SONGS?

As we walk we travel distances, connect points, transforming the space between them into a place of experience and encounters. The paths that we draw in the course of a life are innumerable, sometimes they cross others, and they come together. This is what happened to Valentina and Nuvola, their pedagogical and artistic researches on song and dance, when they met, they recognized themselves as translations of the same intent, and they gave life to a new path, fruit of the encounter itself.
Camminamenti is a path of investigation into movement and singing , starting from the experiential and proprioceptive analysis of bio-mechanics and the continuous physiological changes that allow both expressions. Knowing the tool that makes them possible, the limits and potential that determine it, allows us to develop adaptation to the context and a greater spectrum of expressive possibilities, while preserving the integrity of the body. On this common ground, the dialogue between the two practices offers itself as a further tool for understanding both. Can my singing support my dance and vice versa?
In a learning process according to oral methods and following the research of the Lichtenberger® Method, Valentina invites you to meet the songs of the Italian oral tradition and of the world: a place of privileged expression, free from the dictates of the ordinary. Singing, a space of poetry and rebellion, a revealer of secrets, has kept alive and handed down knowledge that inhabits the body, heart and mind. What happens when our body comes into contact with the ''ancient body'' of these songs? How do we meet the sound of our own and other voices in this ''special territory''?
Nuvola's proposal is rooted in the Axis Syllabus archive which rearranges tools and information on the body in movement in order to provide possibilities for a conscious choice and also the joy of dancing. By integrating different sciences: biomechanics, physics, anthropology, pedagogy, the Axis Syllabus aims to observe the movement of the body starting from its relationship with the environment of which it is part and flesh.
What moves me? What relationships make up the inner landscape of the body? What dialogue between interior and exterior landscapes?
