Atelier tout public donné Par Alessandro Bernardeschi
For this workshop, I want to start from the students' proposals, desires and fantasies, as a meeting, a time of sharing, of opening, and of reflection on individual and collective freedom. How can we work together without losing a sense of individuality, find the balance between oneself and the other, be oneself and be a group at the same time? Between theater and dance, it will be a matter of weaving sensitive realtions between word and body, of breaking the borders that separate the disciplines to find a common space, to create a hybrid that plays on codes and references, a collective collage of crossed paths.
The Contemporary Body
Ayelen Parolin will employ her work Autoctonos II, which is presented in this edition of #DANCELESS complex, as a starting point to invite local professional dancers and movers to take part and experience the unique form of structure as well as the movement languages in the work. With a series of exercises, she will also share her directing tools to guide the participants to a certain state of body, which is available, devoted and listening.

Master in Dance and Choreographic Practices
Ayelen Parolin is part of the pedagogical team of the Master since its creation in 2021.
Conscious of today’s artistic challenges and the reality of the contemporary world, this master’s programme offers choreographers, tomorrow’s creators, a training framework for post-graduate education that combines and develops specific learning, competences and research in dance and its writing and production. Comprising a variety of different approaches and references, the programme is designed to reflect the aesthetic diversity and richness of choreography today. The aim of the master’s programme is to offer an international and multicultural teaching framework that challenges and stimulates the (re)invention of the place of artists in society, encouraging new forms of artistic action, practices, approaches and reflections to flourish – those of the choreographers of tomorrow.
Its objective is to link theory — history of dance, history of art, dramaturgy and analysis — and practice — both physical and choreographic. Taking centre stage, but in interaction with other disciplines and professional paths, choreographic creation is also addressed in terms of its technical and administrative aspects, including lighting design, sound, stage design, costumes and production.
Learning by doing and teamwork are the general principles guiding the education in the master’s programme in order to foster the freedom and responsibility of future choreographers and artists.
The training course runs for two years, from September to June each year, at different sites of the associated organisations (INSAS, La Cambre, Charleroi danse/La Raffinerie and at studios of other partners.
ULB and the Royal Conservatory of Brussels are also partners in the program.
