The first time we met Italian choreographer Chiara Bersani was during Rovereto Choreographic Lab that took place in Rovereto, Italy in September 2017. The lab was part of the EU-project Moving Beyond Inclusion and gathered both dance artists and administrative staff from the participating project partners.
Chiara was one of three invited choreographers that worked with dancers from the project partners during the week-long lab. After the lab, Chiara got in touch with us at Spinn expressing how inspired she’d become by the Spinn dancers and their inquisitive approach towards investigation and creation, with a wish to keep in touch with us. And from our end, we’d become very curious about working with her in some way. Said and done. Monday and Tuesday November 19-20 Chiara visited Spinnstudion to hold a workshop for Spinn’s dancers and a few invited guests. We’re also very exited that Chiara has been chosen for Aerowaves 2019 with her performance Gentle Unicorn. Read more about this here.
Whether this work will develop into something else further down the line is still unclear, but we know for a fact that both the dancers and Chiara got incredibly inspired by working with each other during these two days!
