Kurs with Angelo Petracca

I call my class Rhythmic Volumes Practice and like to define my work holographic, which produces a three-dimensional effect, iridescent, with mobile and shifting reflections. 
My class is based on improvisation tools starting with a strong connection with the spine and how the perception of it leads and gives birth to movement. Where is it born, how is it born and where does the gesture end? A constantly evolving investigation that develops by questioning itself how muscles reacts to impulses, if they can create any of them and how are these transmitted to the affected limbs and to the whole body, making the movement perceptible to the human eye. I utilize what RHYTMH and VOLUME mean to me as parameters to challenge the dancers through the dynamic combination of those. An act of pure honesty in order to discover the functional movement, indispensable and strictly consequent to the state/action in which the body is placed. 
My research looks for a continuous evolution of movement and aims to apply the practice to moments of meticulously precise, geometric composition, logical writing alternating them with states of total openness, research and listening. I invite the "intelligent body" to live the research with extreme precision and clarity empowering empathetic skills.
