An artistic Project for women Over60 by Silvia Gribaudi
The project is developed through a period of residence and meeting with women over 60 of the area involved, who want to deal with a community experience, experimenting with movement through a free and creative expression with their bodies. This will enable them to gain a deeper approach with themselves and with the others through dance, recognizing themselves in a group, in a particular place and context.
The project was born in 2011 on the occasion of the “International Day of Dance” at the Bassano del Grappa city museum, and then it continued in several Italian cities and abroad.
At the end of the various laboratories, the women involved decided to continue the project:
In Bologna in 2013 the ladies organized themselves in order to self-finance a residence.
In Montorso Vicentino in 2013 the ladies requested to the Municipality funds to support the project.
Create through the act of performing a get-together moment and encourage social inclusion in the area that hosts the laboratory by creating relationships between people.
Dance, freedom, identity, experience and community are the key words of this workshop:
Starting from simple movements the choreographer creates a space in which all the participants feel as protagonists and can express their creative potential. Their mature age means a legacy of life experiences, personal backgrounds, that the choreographer tries to take out, at the same time keeping a playful tone:
Every woman becomes a Goddess, as they can have fun and entertain themselves, be in a deep contact with their body and create with the group the strength that only women can express, especially after the age of 60.
