Cie Twain Physical Dance Theatre
Getting rid of the body weight and, especially, of one’s own thoughts, fears, prejudices to enable movement, expression and to freely dance. Than sharing it and merging with others, with nature and life flowing around, while distinguishing who we are and who we look like. This is what Cie Twain Physical Dance Theatre wants to promote, a contemporary dance and physical theatre company. It is an educational as well as psychological journey, which leads to the origins of the self, to now forgotten feelings and impulses. Right here each person’s intimate strength originates, the same strength which also enables the body expression and which tightens muscles and tendons.
The idea came from Loredana Parella’s mind, a choreographer, director and dancer who, during her career, has worked with internationally renowned artists. Everything originates from the body. Body language is a powerful instrument which can interpret meetings, destinies, needs. The courses and workshops organized aim at teaching how to use one’s own body, how to move into space with agility, elegance, strength and a touch of irony. The student shall learn to ration and regulate his own vital energy and power, to feel muscles under his skin, to feel, coordinate, stop, control his own body and to imprison in it all the possible power and energy. Everything while dancing. The best dancers of the course will become members of the Cie Twain Ensemble dance company, through works in progress and short performances.
