VIDEODANCE RESIDENTIAL WORKSHOP Second edition

With Ladys Gonzalez (videomaker, University Professor of Body Expression)
Chiara Zilli (videomaker, dancer)

Seven days of experimentation and collective creation of Videodance for research and production of visual, performative and multimedia art material

From 15 to 21 settembre 2019
Casina Settarte, Ostuni, Italy

The wild nature of Casina Settarte, Ostuni, Southern Italy, open the doors of the creation.

An audiovisual, physical, poetic, personal and interpersonal exploration where the environment will be part of creation, meant as a Being in dialogue with corporeality.

The goal of the 7 days of work is to give life to an intimate and collective geography, which consisting of dance and dance images, taking as a reference the body as a physical, emotional and energetic territory.

The basic questions we are asking are the following: Which biography tells my body? And if the body is my territory, where do its borders begin and where do they end? Which ones are the infinite ways of living it, exploring it, dancing, filming it? Is the sea also my body? And the body of the other? And the crown of a tree?

The different contents we will approach will be the nutrients of a sharing, a communion as a lighthouse that awakens and unites together.

The collective work will condense in a performance in the nature and in a video performance that we will share with the public on the closing day from sunset.

VIDEODANCE RESIDENTIAL WORKSHOP
Second edition

OJOS DE MAR Biography of the boundaries

VIDEODANCE

Videodance is an emerging gender aiming at investigating the movement, the body and the space from audiovisual experimentation, a language that emerges from the encounter between the body and the camera. Videodance allows new aesthetic configurations; it makes visible the cultural identity because it tells the Here and Now of the bodies.

Offers the opportunity to find new postulates about dancing, choreography, identity and audiovisual equipment.

WORK METHODOLOGY

The residency is conceived in a multidisciplinary way and it will be conducted by Ladys Gonzalez, Teacher of Body Expression specialized in Social Videodance, and Chiara Zilli, dancer and filmmaker.

It will be offered a cinematic view on the body’s work and a creative process to approach the performance from this view; specific knowledges about the use of the camera in the Videodance language and on the movements’ investigation.

The multidisciplinary residency will offer to participants an integrated learning that can trigger new paths of artistic, pedagogical and theoretical creation.

WORKING DYNAMICS

Si metterà in azione un dispositivo con modalità di laboratorio suddiviso in tre moduli teorico – pratici, durante i quali verranno offerti gli strumenti attraverso i quali i partecipani potranno costruire i propri materiali. Ogni modulo darà nozioni tanto di linguaggio audiovisivo che di linguaggio corporeo, richiamandosi a una costruzione interdisciplinaria, puntando alla costruzione e produzione collettiva o in piccoli gruppi di un Videodanza.

REALIZED BY

The workshop residency is realized by Flor Menudita Association of Chiara Zilli, a dance company and an open community of dancers, musicians and dreamers, and of all people who believe in the evolutionary potentialities of the human being through artistic practice.

Her mission is to promote and spread around personal well-being and growth through dance, conscious movement and videodance.

‘Falling into the body and feel through its eyes…
It’s from here that the movement it is born,
from a state of inner resonance that is transformed in the desire of gesture.
Each flap of skin, each periphery, each cell sings the desire for life, the dance of life.
Grace appears during the journey as a visible face of the flowing. '
