Cristina Caprioli has worked for many years on the Scandinavian scene, developing the concept of expanded choreography. She presents a laboratory investigating text, gesture, narrative, body and translation which leads up to the installation Notes on a Pebble.
Set within the film Yellow Labor, this installation-performance work sees the workshop participants and the audience present writing the choreography (text/book/novel) investigated during the laboratory on pebbles.
One word per pebble, one pebble after the other, the novel is transferred onto the floor of the Stazione Leopolda and, imbuing the space with sense and meaning, it creates a high-impact image. A stunning image, partial view that covers/invades the territory of visited space, yet that leaves its “horizon” intact. And tangible display of collective Labor of precision, of scripture/reading as long-term micro-displacement, and of translation as report/return from one materiality to the next, or rather, of the passing of signification from a narrative to a multitude of other materiality, in pieces.
From Monday 9 to Friday 13 May 2016, Fabbrica Europa will host the intensive workshop Yellow Labor led by choreographer Cristina Caprioli, linked to the creation of the interactive installation Notes on a Pebble.
The laboratory will investigate the notion of expanded choreography by performing a series of transferences between text, gesture and image whereby narrative proliferates signification.
The work will provide insight in the art practice of Cristina Caprioli and the ccap company, where choreography and transference are indistinguishable, and one another constitutive.
The workshop will be structured in two parts:
from 10.00 to 13.00 : lectures and discussions
from 14.00 to 17.00 : working on the installation Notes on a Pebble
Applicants must send their CV, ensuring the presence for the entire period, to

Selected candidates will be contacted by April 27.
