What do you expect to be free from? The last group of dancers ready for the Bologna workshop
Here we are! Almost at the end of the workshop session of Performing Gender. The next 14th of December, the Bologna workshop will start and we are ready to introduce the ten dancers that will take part in this experience. The group of young professional dancers comes from several Italian institutions like Balletto di Roma, CSC of Bassano del Grappa. They will train with the dance maker and performer Jija Sohn together with the local dance dramaturg Greta Pieropan.
One of the themes during the week will be the boundaries and the confines to cross, so to get to know more about their approach to the workshop, we asked the dancers to complete this sentence

- DISCOVERING SOMETHING NEW ABOUT MYSELF
