“CrePa – con noi” is a workshop on choreographic and poetic writing in which the image of a crack is used to reveal fractures, scars and fragments of the participants’ lives. Physically, the crack can be seen as an event that modifies the body and shows its fragility; metaphorically, it is a disruption of the experienced personal and collective balances. Sharing our words will define a common semantic area, whereas the physical practice will allow the participants to incorporate their meanings and sounds. Resisting judgements or self-analytical temptations, the truth of each private and public crack will go from the accuracy of the word that names it to the strength of the body that enacts it.

The workshop lasts 3 hours. It is open to all bodies and all ability levels and does not require any physical or literary skills. We recommend comfortable clothes and invite all participants to bring their own equipment to work comfortably (mats, pillows). We also encourage you to work barefoot if possible. “CrePa”‘s semantic area of reference is in Italian, but the workshop will be conducted in Italian and English.
