THE RISICO SHOOTING | Media Dance
Artistic residency at school
aimed to Istituto Albe Steiner (Torino)
with Alain El Sakhawi
curated by COORPI
within the experimental project Media Dance 2020/2021
The choreographer’s or dance professional’s artistic research is dropped for a short period of time inside the school building, in order to involve a group of students in the work, contaminating it with their presence and bringing art and creative movement of bodies within the school.
Due to the closure of the schools by governmental regulation, the artistic residency will be carried out telematically.
“I born in France and grew up in Paris from a French mother and an Egyptian father. I have lived between Paris and Sicily which is the meeting point between my ancestors cultures. This gave me a great rise of inspiration. Since October 2019 I moved to Rome (Italy) to follow an intensive Cinematographer Course specializing in D.I.T (Digital Imaging Technician). I come from martial arts, artistic gymnastic, comic books drawing and my first profession for 15 years have been dancing. I worked as a dancer for companies in France, Germany and Italy. As a filmmaker I worked for several companies for promotional contents. I have been directing my own work together with the « QBR Collective » basing it on combining languages of dance with grammar of cinema. The work was lead by linking shots with architecture, dance with all kind of intentional movements, editing with rhythm, body with environment, dance and cinema through cinematographic references.” (Alain El Sakhawi)
