THE CLASS: Matteo Carvone is a dancer and choreographer, his research aims for the heightened awareness of the quality of movement by a sensorial perception. He places the class participants in the context of creation, the individual appropriation of the different qualities that emerges for each individual. A constant research and physical dialogue with the participants. Rhythmical patterns, psychological alertness, spirals, architectural models and a direct connection with the breath are keys he’s using in order to develop his dance.
