Who moves who? – Roberto Bellatalla

Between lines, points, spirals, an invisible thread holds bodies and ropes together, like the grass that grows in the interstices, new forms are generated, perfect in their unpredictability, surprising at every deviation, true propulsion, with agreement and disagreement.
You listen out of the corner of your eye, the eye on a shoulder blade, on the elbow, on one side, look for another perspective, in an infinite game, calm and animated like a pond, suddenly becomes a wave and a torrent in flood . Sudden-action, listening to waves, many, strange, unpredictable, different, which intersect, which seek each other, each with its own story, to create yet another and share moments of pure magic.
Like foam on the wave of the sea.
Here this is the world shared by Contact Improvisation and Improvised music

Tra linee, punti, spirali, un filo invisibile tiene uniti corpi e corde, come l’erba che cresce negli interstizi, si generano nuove forme, perfette nella loro imprevedibilità, sorprendenti ad ogni deviazione, vera propulsione, con l’accordo e il disaccordo.
Si ascolta con la coda dell’occhio, l’occhio su una scapola, sul gomito, su un fianco, cerca una prospettiva altra, in un gioco infinito, calmo e animato come uno stagno, si fa onda e torrente in piena all’improvviso. Improvvisa-azione, ascolto di onde, tante, strane, imprevedibili, diverse, che si incrociano, che si cercano, ognuna con una sua storia, a crearne un’altra ancora e condividere momenti di pura magia.
Come schiuma su l’onda delle mare.
Ecco questo è il mondo condiviso da Contact Improvvisation e Musica Improvvisata

CONTACT SILENCE retreats is a social promotion project of LIBERA MENTE APS association

We firmly believe that contact improvisation holds great potential on a social and communicative level and carries within it an unequivocal educational message. In addition to being the vanguard of the natural and authentic movement, it teaches respect for one’s body and the other, nourishing the fundamental need of the human being to physical contact, gives joy and well-being to those who practice it, reconnects man to his creativity and the primordial dimension of the game.
