domestic rehearsal documented by Ciprian Gheorghe
yesterday we continued our workshop-audition in Riga and we worked for a half day in our own flat. it was an amazing day full of great moments…thank you for your daring & lovely solos.
back in Porto after many years. the first (and only time) I visited Porto was in 2005 with the “Serial Paradise” performance. my memories are blurry from that period. I just remember working the whole day in the theatre to setup the performance, a very good show with audience laughing. And a sea food dinner with my dear colleague and wife Gabriela (who was the tour organiser and producer of the Serial Paradise). And a late walking in the city…my first day in Porto started also with a walk into the park of sentiments. very nice feelings….
the houses in Porto are beautiful as well as pastes de nata, one of the best sweets in the world.
hmmm…..hard to develop a solo based on people’s desires and preferences. following some discussions on Facebook with female friends and colleagues about how a man should dance in order to become more attractive for a female, I developed a solo section. but i’m not sure if I heading in the right direction….what do you think ?
today I lead a one day workshop about fragility in my studio in Bogliasco which was attended by professionals and amateurs dancers from Genova. we tried the heart dance and the emotional trip. i was maybe a difficult workshop but seems that everybody enjoyed the experience. for me it was a great and rewarding day testing some of the idea I was working on. we also visited the Bogliasco Foundation’s beautiful garden and enjoyed the nature smelling the orange flowers. mille grazie ragazzi!
i asked several people on the Facebook and dear fellows in Bogliasco, how they will prefer to see a dance performance. from a gay couple I got the tweak dance which I didn’t know initially what kind of dance was. google help me to found a new type of dance which looks like has a lot of funs. please try to imagine a men dancing in the same way like this girl….
