29th of April – 15th of June

Info

Starting with April 29th, on the International Dance Day, until June, we invite you to meet a dancer and walk together in a dancing walk.

Walking is common, but with each step before the other the movement becomes automatic, unreflective and we tend to forget its potential to create. We invite you to take advantage of these walks and to understand it as a dance. Walking, a concrete, everyday thing, then becomes abstract, because it opens the possibility within.

In the idea that every body movement is expressive, even walking, you will spend together an hour in which you will be attentive to the body, you will explore what happens and how you feel when you bring intentionality in movements that you perform.

In the walk we propose you take together with a dancer, we invite you to let your body be like a site for researching a world understood through dance. We propose a meeting that will bring your attention to your attitude, posture and the way you feel. A dancing walk about the things that change your energy in your body through ordinary movements. An hour about the things that turn movement into dance, about the thoughts that appear when you have body awareness and about the techniques that you can use to feel good.

A dancing walk does not necessarily look unusual – from the outside it looks like a simple walk. The most important thing is that you become present in your body, and from something so simple, dance opens a new world for you, whose creator we invite you to become.

How does a dancing walk go?

1. You meet and greet a dancer in a quiet place, which you choose together.

2. Establish a route to walk for an hour.

3. How do you feel when you move? Starting from this question, discover together how to listen better to your body and what is the relationship between what you feel and where you are.

4. My practice, your practice. The dancer shares a practice that they use to make them feel better, and if you also have one, you will explore them both together.

5. Wrap-up. End the meeting by discussing the things you noticed and discovered during your walk.

The project takes place outdoors, in one-on-one format. Each partner entity decides on the days of the project, depending on the regulations in force in each city. The protection measures and legal regulations imposed against the spread of CO-VID19 will be respected throughout the meetings.
