ADVANCED TRAINING COURSES
It is a performative path led by the dancer-choreographer Mariana Porceddu, alias MARIANA, suitable for all those who in the artistic field want to deepen their relationship with the body and seek in it the true and profound expressiveness evoked by dance and gesture; one of the key objectives will be to know and recognize the space outside and inside the body, identified by breathing experienced as a principle of muscle relaxation or
as the prime mover. Measuring time, or feeling and managing the time of the scene: analyzing silence as waiting for action, building and recognizing the rhythm. To research
the Dialogue between instinct and reason and find its synthesis. The ultimate goal is to bring the artist to an immediate and conscious stage presence
Workshop held by Emiliano Pellisari, set designer, costume designer, illusionist, theater director and sui generis choreographer. Emiliano is a multidisciplinary artist who works on the integration of stage languages (dance, theatre, music, mime, physical theatre).
His course includes the study of the light that falls on the bodies, illuminating them with light and dark colors which goes well with the study of human anatomy, enhancing the figures and movements of the actors,
dancers and performers in a pictorial dimension based on central perspective.

In 15 years, critics have tried to interpret the Nogravity Company as a company of dancers who, however, did not dance. The paradox for operators has never coincided with the
audience enjoying the show and that's it. Isn't it dance, in the sense that it doesn't belong to
history of dance. But we have the human body that moves on stage and this anthropologically belongs to dance. There is no escaping criticism and conceptual dissertations,
however, 15 years after the first demonic work with an ultra-mundane theme (Daimon, Rome 2005), one can want to offer and reveal the studies and experiments that led to the creation of a unique style of its kind. NOGRAVITY wanted to take the choreographic choices that led to the creation of the scenic space and the choreographic technique of Nogravity to the extreme consequences. 15 years after the first creation, the theatrical space is increasingly synthesized, minimalist, where the physics of reality is canceled and everything appears as an extraordinary and miraculous natural experiment, dreamed with open eyes.
The Nogravity dancers charge into the scenic space performing movements according to a choreographic grammar conceived by Emiliano Pellisari and implemented over the years together with Mariana Porceddu. Do dancers fulfill Gordon Craig's dream? They are the super puppets used for their athletic abilities, their musical talent, the beauty of the gesture.
