Identity

SPECIFIC trains dancers able independently to handle their own body.
During the course, the dancers are stimulated to develop their potential through a proper athletic and artistic preparation, which is essential to achieve a very powerful performance in both physical and expressive sense.
SPECIFIC program provides for a daily training based on the study of the mechanics of body in movement and on continuous attempts

that allow the dancers to concretely experiment the infinite possibilities of movement suggested by the application of the physical and mechanical laws.
Thus the training is composed by specific exercises designed to acquire practical and theoretical tools so that the dancer can achieve high technical and performing skills, coupled with other exercises which require a significant emotional approach, in order to encourage dancers to integrate their own sensitivity.

Lithos

Creazione realizzata per Ensemble PP/T

Prendendo spunto dal mito di Medusa, “Lithos” si propone di indagare il mistero della sua origine. Prima d’essere trasfigurata, che donna fu Medusa? Quale colpa la condannò al suo destino? Il mito narra che la dea Atena volle punirla perché la fanciulla fu posseduta dal dio Poseidone in un tempio sacro alla dea, compiendo un grave sacrilegio. Ma poiché la divinità non è punibile, l’ira di Atena si scatenò contro Medusa che, oltre ad essere vittima di violenza, subì il castigo spettante al colpevole, rivelatosi ancor più grave dal momento che nessuno potè più avvicinarsi a lei senza trasformarsi in lithos, pietra. Lithos è perciò l’attributo di coloro i quali subiscono il fascino ambiguo della donna, ma lo è anche di Medusa stessa, condannata a restare sola senza neppure la consolazione della sua perduta bellezza.
Cinque donne in scena, cinque personificazioni della Gorgone, ciascuna recante il simbolo della propria fierezza, subiscono il gioco beffardo della sorte. Una sorte che tramuta in orrore, in lithos, l’eccesso di ogni virtù.

Ensemble PP/T è la giovane formazione composta da alcuni dei danzatori del corso di perfezionamento SPECIFIC Athletic and Artistic Training for Contemporary Dancers diretto dal coreografo Loris Petrillo, all’interno delle attività di Twain CPD.

Impromptu#01

28 ottobre 2017
Teatro Traiano – Civitavecchia (RM)

Creazione realizzata da Loris Petrillo per i danzatori di Specific training

Impromptu#01 nasce da un lavoro prettamente fisico, intenzionalmente privo di  disegno drammaturgico. In questo breve lavoro, Loris Petrillo si propone di manifestare la fisicità di un danzatore contemporaneo, un esercizio allo scoperto dove l’applicazione del metodo personale dello stesso Petrillo dà vita a una performance che vede in scena i danzatori del corso Specific.
