Torinodanza Festival and Biennale Democrazia 2023 collaborate to explore, with the students from a few high schools of Turin and surrounding areas, the theme of the freedom of the body.

With the workshop project CORPO LIBERO #COLLECTIVE, Turin artist and choreographer Silvia Gribaudi, with the collaboration of Andrea Rampazzo, Elena Rolla, and Viola Scaglione, leads a group of over 200 teenagers through a creative process that explores the boundaries between body, identity, and freedom.

The project includes movement workshop sessions with a view to create a collective urban action that will lead to the re-appropriation of the public space by the teenagers; there, each body, with its own uniqueness, will be able to express its need to be a protagonist.

The action lets vibrate and generates a revolutionary flow of bodies in their diversity, complexity, and beauty.

The workshop path is articulated through practices and exercises addressing themes such as:

  • Inhabiting and re-inhabiting my body; physical practices of dance and theatre to reawaken one’s body
  • The gaze: how does that affect our bodies?
  • How we watch to see in a different manner
  • Individual body and collective body: how can they get into a dialogue?
  • Visible and invisible body: being in the body with and without the others’ gaze
  • Being one’s body.

The meetings are conceived to stimulate and let emerge for every participating teenager their personal perception of their body, and to deliver a flash mob in urban spaces, which is repeated various times during the day.
