Descrizione: 

Il Play-Fight è una pratica fisica che amalgama le qualità cooperative della contact improvisation e partner-dance, con i raffinati principi di combattimento della capoeira e delle arti marziali interne. Attraverso un’esplorazione che va oltre il movimento fisico e lo studio delle forme, il Play-Fight è un vero e proprio allenamento all’osservazione e all’ascolto di sè in rapporto alle proprie esigenze espressive e al confronto costante con l’altro, una pratica che rivela i molteplici aspetti e le infinite possibilità dell’interazione umana in tutto il suo potenziale creativo. L’insegnamento principale del Play-Fight consiste nel mantenere la propria integrità fisica ed una mente calma e resiliente di fronte a momenti di potenziale rischio che sorgono spontaneamente – seppur in un contesto protetto e controllato – durante un’interazione che unisce il gioco alla lotta. Ancor prima, la comprensione e l’incorporazione dei principi della non-resistenza e della non-violenza, sono fondamentali affinchè si possa ritrovare quello stato originario dell’essere secondo cui “tutto fluisce”.

Francesca Romano – Ha iniziato i suoi studi di danza e movimento da bambina. Nel 2005 si diploma alla Scuola di Arte Drammatica Paolo Grassi (Milano). Lavora come insegnante di danza e movimento, performer e coreografa. Dal 2013 ha ampliato la sua ricerca avvicinandosi allo yoga e alle arti marziali. È nel 2015 che si avvicina al lavoro di Bruno Caverna durante un workshop Play-Fight. Da quel momento ha iniziato a seguire costantemente questa pratica, trovando nei suoi strumenti importanti spunti di ispirazione, nuovi modi di avvicinarsi al movimento e alla vita, nuovi modi di connettersi con gli altri e con se stessa. Come membro del team di Formless Arts supporta la realizzazione di progetti specifici e lavora come facilitatrice di Play-Fight.

Ester Braga – Ho esplorato il mio corpo attraverso il movimento da che ho memoria, provando una varietà di pratiche fisiche. Danza contemporanea, flying low e passing through, yoga, bmc, contact improvisation, varie tecniche somatiche e da 5 anni liquid body e play-fight sono quelle pratiche che per lo più hanno plasmato e tuttora alimentano il modo in cui mi muovo e ricerco attraverso l’espressione fisica e l’interazione con altri. Durante la mia formazione in Community Dance presso il Laban di Londra ho avuto esperienza in progetti di inclusività e lavorato con gruppi di ogni genere: diverse età, contesto sociale, disabilità fisiche e intellettive. Nello specifico, il più recente allenamento costante nella pratica di play-fight, sviluppata da Bruno Caverna, mi ha dato la possibilità di aprirmi alla contact improvisation con un nuovo stato mentale (e corporeo). Al momento sono estremamente motivata dall’ esplorare questa sottile linea di confine/unione tra le due pratiche. Da diversi anni faccio parte del programma di studio per insegnare Play-Fight condotto da Bruno Caverna.

Description:

Play-Fight, a self-empowering physical practice that weaves together cooperative qualities of dance partnering with highly refined confrontational principles from capoeira and internal martial arts. The exploration goes beyond the fringes of mere physicality. The reciprocal mirroring through the physical drills leads the practice into a deep space of self-discovery, for acknowledging and revealing myriad aspects in human interactions and expressions. The core guidance is to learn how to preserve own integrity and inner calm under controlled stress-induced events while being engaged through playfully confrontational interactions. The embodiment of principles of non-resistance and non-violence is at the top of all achievements for allowing flow to be embodied, returning thus to our original state of being.

Francesca Romano – She started her studies in dance and movement when she was a child. Over the years she went through Artistic Gymnastics, modern and contemporary dance, contact improvisation, dance theatre, performing arts studying and working with many dancers and movement researchers. In 2005 she graduated at the School of Drama Paolo Grassi (Milan).
She works as a dance and movement teacher, performer and choreographer. Since 2013 she has expanded her research approaching yoga and martial arts having so far a deeper experience and knowledge about connection between body, mind and inner space. This movement field was a point of revolution for her studies and she started to follow this path, researching more and more what’s beyond definitions, trying to always be in a state of openness typical of the “beginner mind”. It was in 2015 that she approached the work of Bruno Caverna during a Play-Fight workshop. From that moment she started to follow this practice constantly, finding in its tools important points of inspiration, new ways to approach movement and life, new ways to connect with the others and herself. As member of Formless Arts team she supports the realization of specific projects and works as Play-Fight facilitator.

Ester Braga – I have been exploring my body through movement for my whole life, trying a variety of physical practices. Contemporary dance, flying low & passing through, yoga, bmc, contact improvisation, and since the past 5 years liquid body & play-fight are those practices who mostly shaped and are shaping the way I move and discover myself through the physical expression and interaction with others. I have been inspired and supported by each of this encounter in different and unique ways, while at the same time the core of the research has been always there, simply in a nutshell: understanding myself, in relation to my surrounding. All these experiences are doorways to find more freedom: in the body in terms of flexibility, efficiency, softness, strength, grounding and flow; in the mind in terms of openness, widening the perception, softening the thinking process, getting to know patterns that are there and understanding that I can create new ones when necessary. I am thankful for all the great teachers and dance partners I have met until now. Now I would like to share some of the tools that have been of great support along my way. I care a lot about the field of contact improvisation, not only for the practice itself, but also for the set of values and qualities that are fostered through it. Although I have never gone too deep into training its technique, this practice and way of meeting through dance have always been with me. My latest consistent training into play-fight practice by Bruno Caverna gave me the possibility to open up myself to contact improvisation with a new state of mind (and body) which allows me to explore, within the frame of contact, but with a greater freedom cultivated through the play-fight training. For this reason I have been extremely curious to explore this fine line between the two approaches, in my body first. I am highly inspired to see how certain principles in the moment of the improvisation can work harmoniously together, empowering the dance from inside out, or can also take completely different directions. Since two years I am taking part in the Play-Fight Facilitator Program guided by Bruno Caverna; a mind-blowing journey. This path gives me the ground to facilitate play-fight and in this particular case is offering some tools to enrich my personal study that moves in between the two practices.
