if you wondered how to roll on a hard floor without getting hurt, how to land from a jump without making any noise, how to use explosivity instead of force to create unexpected effects with your body, then this workshop might interest you. the workshop i give can be accessible and adapted to all kinds of participants, as well as to professionals, and i think it could be useful for anyone who practices contemporary dance, has an acrobatic base, or wants to develop an organic and fluid quality of movement on the floor. the goal during the 6 days will be, first, learning a technical vocabulary of acrodance, and then working on the creation of sequences and movement research. in my teaching, i divide acrodance into 4 levels: level 1 being floorwork; level 2 being quadrupedal or intermediate level, including shoulder rolls and break dance moves, elbows work, etc; level 3 being standing, with variations of cartwheels, passing trough handstand, etc; and level 4 being jumps and aerial figures. the work of creating sequences will consist of choosing technical elements from these 4 levels and then connecting them, while working on the fluidity of movement and transitions. the movement research, on the other hand, will be based on improvisation and will leave space for the expressive and artistic universe of each participant.

please be aware of our early bird special offer for this workshop! you can apply for this offer up until the 24th of march 2023. after the 24th the regular workshop fee applies. applications are accepted up until one day before the workshops starts.

davide bonetti, 27 years old, is a professional contemporary circus artist, or more precisely, an acrodancer. he started his movement practice doing parkour from 16 to 18 years old and then got into flic circus school in turin, italy, improving his handstands and acrobatics. at 21 years old, he was accepted into cnac (centre national des arts du cirque) in châlons en champagne, france, where he became interested in a smoother and more organic way of doing acrobatics: acrodance. it is still a very hybrid discipline that doesn't only mix acrobatics and contemporary dance techniques, but it also takes from capoeira, floor-work, breakdance, martial arts, and other various disciplines. since 5 years, aside from working as a freelancer for circus and dance companies, he started collaborating with dance academies, festivals and circus schools, giving workshops on this discipline, which was very new and unexplored.
