Hosted by Teatro Isola di Confine
SEPTEMBER 10 – 12
“Stiltasana” is a means of introducing the vocabulary of acrobatic stilts used and practiced by The Carpetbag Brigade in their performance work. The “Stiltasana” workshop prepares experienced stilters, actors and dancers by dynamically integrating principles of Ashtanga Yoga, Butoh Dance, and Contact Improvisation into a physical theater practice with stilts. We will rise and fall with grace from sky to earth practicing stilt inversions, oppositional still points, fluid descents, ground movement, partner lifts, and alignment in motion. The practice will begin with technique and move towards improvisation and composition. The three day intensive workshop will have two 3+ hour sessions each day plus evening video presentations on monday and tuesday.
Teatro Isole de Confina is in San Venanzo, Italy and is directed by Valerio Apice and Giulia Castellani and is a theater dedicated to research and practice as well as production.
