Through the tools offered by the Axis Syllabus we will observe and play with the sophisticated
intelligence of the body in motion and its interactions with the environment that surrounds us; we
will work on theoretical and practical stimuli, individual and group improvisations, and we will dance together.
The workshop is open to dancers, actors, musicians, professionals and amateurs of the movement and to all who are interested in experiencing an accurate awareness of the body and its expressive potential.
