THE BODY DOESNT LIE
- FROM STRUCTURE TO FLOW -

In a world that bases the life on rational and rigid rules, where we want to define and analyse everything and where Nature, Intuition, Soul, Dream, Feelings are concepts so often devalued and misunderstood, I feel the need to propose a journey for Humans that are not ready to give up.

A transversal practice that embraces, is inspired and uses elements from different movement disciplines like dance, CI, yoga, martial arts, Play-Fight, somatics.
The wish to "explore" defines an open and alive approach to ourselves and the commitment to dive into the unknown without fears and expectations. This precious state is called "the beginner mind". We are ready to let us be surprised from what will come out.

The class will be focused on exploring our solid structure in relation to weight and gravity, looking for space inside and inner flow that will guide us to move in the space as complex systems. How structure can support the flow? Which is the interplay between solidity and fluidity?

FRANCESCA ROMANO
She started her studies in dance and movement when she was a child. Over the years she went through Artistic Gymnastics, modern and contemporary dance, contact improvisation, dance theater, performing arts studying and working with many dancers and movement researchers. In 2005 she graduated at the School of Drama Paolo Grassi (Milan).

She works as dance and movement teacher, performer and choreographer. From 2013 she expanded her researches approaching yoga and martial arts (in particular Khala Yoga with Diego Prodi - Indio and Play-Fight with Bruno Caverna) having so far a deeper experience and knowledge about the connection between body, mind and inner space. This movement field was a point of revolution for her studies and she started to follow these paths, researching more and more what's beyond definitions, trying to always be in a state of openness typical of the "beginner mind". From 2015 she started to follow Play-Fight practice with Bruno Caverna constantly, finding in its tools important points of inspiration, new ways to approach movement and life, new ways to connect with others and herself. As a member of Formless Arts team she supports the realization of specific projects and works as Play-Fight facilitator.
