Fresh Friday with Livia Massarelli
18th January 2024
It’s that time of the week again … Fresh Friday! This week we have the brilliant Livia Massarelli in to take class.
Livia is a multifaceted dance artist passionate about the investigation of the humans’ inner world.
Her approach involves leveraging her expertise as a dance artist, meditation guide, and life coach. Through dance, Livia intertwines her skills, creating a holistic methodology that goes beyond conventional boundaries, aiming to uncover the depths of the human experience trough movement.
Livia, with more than 10 years of experience in the dance sector, has worked as freelance performing internationally works by Emanuel Gat, Shobana Jeyasingh, Patricia Okenwa, Tony Adigun, Dora Frankel and others.
She has presented her own works in various festivals in The UK, France, Italy, Portugal and Belgium.
Livia teaches dance and meditation workshops internationally and from 2020 is the Rehearsal Director of Equilibrio Dinamico Dance Company (IT).
What can our dancers expect? “Livia’s dynamic and energizing workshop aims to support dancers in deepening their practice and developing their physical and mental skills while investigating their own creativity. Starting from a moment of self-awareness and deep listening, it seeks to build up the strengths and the uniqueness of the performers, to work the technical skills, and to explore individual and group creativity in a playful environment. The workshop includes work through improvisation, set exercises standing and on the floor, and movement phrases. Particularly, attention is given to self-awareness, awareness of the body in space and how dancers can creatively interact and experiment.”
