smooth criminal

if you've wondered how to roll on a hard floor without hurting yourself , 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 technique into 4 levels: level 1 being floorwork; level 2 being quadrupedal or intermediate level, including shoulder rolls and breaking moves, elbows work, etc; level 3 being standing, including variations of cartwheels, passing through handstands, etc; and level 4 being jumps and aerial figures. 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 2024. after the 24th the regular workshop fee applies. applications are accepted up until one day before the workshops starts.

davide bonetti is a professional 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, breaking, martial arts, and other various disciplines. since 6 years, aside from working as a freelancer for circus and dance companies, he started collaborating with dance academies, festivals and circus schools in Europe, giving workshops on this discipline.
