INVESTIGATE, REIMAGINE & MULTIPLY YOUR BODY’S INNER POTENTIAL
MoDem is the choreographic language developed by Roberto Zappalà for Compagnia Zappalà Danza, an Italian dance company that was meant to premiere their brand new work, Remaking Bach, in the M1 CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival in Singapore this year, before the global pandemic of Covid-19 changed everyone’s plans.
The concept behind this workshop is contained in “Omnia Corpora”, an essay written by the choreographer Roberto Zappalà himself concerning his approach to choreography, including notes and principles on the construction of his creations.
The most physical part of this workshop is empowering both the body and the mind through a powerful and muscular work. The choreographer’s language is based on simple criteria: the connection to the flux, and to harmonies that the body develops, thanks to a methodology hinged upon group interaction.
Joints and body sections are selected and stimulated through a process aimed at exploring the countless possibilities possessed by the limbs in order to investigate, reimagine, and multiply the body’s inner potential.
The visceral body is a key element in Zappalà’s work, just like instinct that identifies an apparent imperfection. Instinct and imperfection, together, are also added values to movement in the choreographer’s vocabulary.
This 1.5-hour workshop is priced at SGD15.
