A self-authoring dancer, to whom the choreographer leaves more creative space than in the past.
The contemporary choreographer often delegates the creation of choreographic phrases to the dancer, who personally mixes and reproduces them into a given context and space.
To do this, improvisation turns out as an indispensable tool for the choreographic creation, a technique allowing the dancer to listen his own body and the environment, a real expression of natural movement.
As dancer becomes author of himself, he is stimulated to affirm the 'solo', a place where the dancer has the chance to stage his unique creation. Improvisation is not only used for compositional purposes.
A new experience inspired by Circus Arts.
The Aerial Hoop, aka Air Circle, Lyra, Aerial Ring or Cerceau (in French), is a large circle hanging from the ceiling through ropes and carabiners.
Inside, athletes, or rather, "aerialists", perform often difficult and dangerous acrobatic stunts.
By using sheets, athletes perform spectacular movements, turns and falls while suspended in the air - at a height that can vary from 4 to 10 meters - creating strange and striking positions.
Break dance (real name b-boying or breaking) is a dance style coming from the American hip hop culture, widespread in the 1970s in the Bronx, the black neighborhood on the outskirts of New York City.
It originally draws some of his moves from the Brazilian "capoeira", immediately establishing a strong contact with the ground, carrying out very spectacular steps and movements, including:
Rotations ("spins" and "glides"), fragmented movements ("electrics" and "freeze") and acrobatic steps ("evolutions")
which still play the main part in this dance style.
