Weigh Station / Waag+3
Friday, November 24 is the tenth Bolzano meeting with the international “CreativeMornings” network: once a month at Weigh Station for breakfast, connecting with more than 200 cities in 68 countries around the world.
Take one hour for you before starting your work, we put coffee and content on it, don’t forget the cup! In November, the proposed theme is “RHYTHM”, and we will discuss it over breakfast with Erika Salamone, theatrical.
If we look around us, we realise that we are surrounded by billions of sounds, noises, rhythms. Objects, the body, nature, the reality around us is immersed in a sound universe. But we do not only find rhythm in the reality that surrounds us; we also find it within ourselves, just think of the breath, the heart, the bowels. An inner rhythm.
But when the body encounters rhythm? What does it generate? How does it react?
Specifically, we will talk about the body in motion. A body that can generate movement, dance, music and theatre.
