Slittamenti is the public presentation of the intensive Masterclass conceived and conducted by Cristina Caprioli, Italian choreographer and Sweden residing scholar, with the curatorial participation of Pietro Gaglianò, art critic and expert in body politics.
The masterclass, scheduled from September 27 to October 3 at the PARC Performing Arts Research Centre in Florence, invites four choreographers to present a solo. Works still in progress are admitted, provided they are already clear in terms of intention, concept and form, with a specific “body” placed in relation to a specific context. In other words, works already formulated but not fixed, inclined to take on new forms and formats with the participation of eight other dancers/performers and the contribution of four visual artists. The project intends choreography as the continuous slipping through of language, ready to deviate from its own discipline, navigate foreign spaces, and leave its territory to inhabit multiplicity. The contributions elaborated within the work sessions will converge in the final presentation in various formats, including an open and interdisciplinary concept of choreography.
Cristina Caprioli, born and raised in Italy, after a dance career in Germany and the United States, is now resident in Stockholm since 1983, where in the 90s she founded CCAP, still the basis of all her work. Cristina dedicates herself to choreography in various forms and various formats, such as shows, installations, exhibitions, films, festivals and publications. Each work is a long-term research, which goes hand in hand with “community projects”, national and international tournées, and pedagogical activities. Cristina is Professor of Choreography and has received many scholarships and various awards.
Pietro Gaglianò, art critic and curator, researches into the relationship between the aesthetics of power and the counter-narrations acted by art, opting for urban and social contexts with a particular focus on the theoretical systems of performance. In his books and exhibitions, experimentation with hybrid formats between art and social sciences is central to cultivate the political perception of public space and the community. He teaches in Italian and US institutions and is active in international projects and networks that experiment with non-formal art and pedagogy practices for education against discrimination.
