Dance workshop
Objects, voice and movements

Intuition, spontaneity and technique are the tools used to enter in the topic of the workshop. Through the participation of the body and the observation of the mind, the participants will learn how to compose movements, play with materials and use the voice in the immediacy of the present moment. The instant composition will be the main frame through which all these elements are organized in one single practice of dance. The proposed exercises will focus on perception, pro-active use of gravity, agility and lightness in the process of thinking, imagination, compositional mind and poetry of action. Participants will be accompanied during the lesson through a progressive journey that starts from the simplicity of the individual act, up to the complexity and richness of an instant group composition.


Paolo Cingolani is an Italian dancer specialized in the art of improvisation and instant composition. His work is characterized by a specific training in intuition as the first tool to create dance and text in performance. His way of composing choreographies and characters on stage defines a clear poetry of time and space in the contemporary scenic arts. He mostly works as an independent artist, making performances and projects with other artists, dancers, musicians and visual designers. In this freelance context, he has performed extensively throughout Europe (2005-2020). Since 2012, Paolo has been a member of Allen’s Line – the company of Julyen Hamilton. Allen’s Line has presented its productions in Germany, Belgium, France, Norway and Italy. As a teacher, he has developed his personal body’s technique resulting from the combination of Tai-Ji Qi Gong and the principles of contemporary dance. Since 2006 he has been teaching in schools, universities and festivals across Europe. Videos and referral material:
