Conscious Release Method with Agostina D’Alessandro

Monday, July 10 – Saturday, July 15, 2023
10:00 – 17:00

Dear professional dancers in Slovenia and abroad, Platforma NEST is more than excited to share with you news about the upcoming program for season 2023. In July we are honored to welcome back to Ljubljana the wonderful artist, pedagogue and choreographer Agostina D’Alessandro. For six days Agostina will guide us through her complex and transformative method Conscious Release. If you are interested in research in the fields of body mechanics, philosophy, physics, movement theories and metaphysical approach to dance, don’t hold back and book your spot on the workshop. Together we will enter the process of opening up the full potential of creativity to serve a unique performing expression of the present moment.

The application of this technique optimizes the body perception by building awareness towards the current state and abilities of the dancer. The body becomes a borderless tool for the imagination and its dance patterns. By using the contemplation of inner space and through the release of tension, an effective means to stop habitual patterns and formal movements in the dance arises.

This year, the workshops will be held in Stara mestna elektrarna and will end with a public presentation of the research process. The international group will open its creative coexistence to the audience on the last day of the workshop, Saturday, July 15.
