Los Faunos is a new project developed with the choreographer Quim Bigas Bassart, four Piedmont dance companies and a network of national partners engaging ten local dance schools and communities around Lavanderia a Vapore.
From January to April, the project will unpack as an incubator for emerging talents that will benefit from the encounters with the leading artists in an open, dynamic, and informal net where to cultivate and express participants’ creative potential.
During these months, leading artists and participants will revisit the figure of the Faun, its queerness and intersectionality, adopting the repertoire as a creative ground to revisit the code and reflect on the present.
The international guest and the local companies will develop creative tasks and choreographic scores that can activate in dance schools, teachers and participants, a compositional and expressive ability that goes beyond disciplinary teachings.
