About the workshop // Liquid Bodies
The workshop will develop a technical work based on the relation to gravity, imbalance, fluidity, energy and the precision of the movement.The analysis of the internal paths of the body, of the “anatomy” of the gesture, allows exploring several amplifications and qualities of movement with a new authenticity.Some choreographic phrases of our productions will be learned, in order to research movement entirely experienced into the space.

About Marco Cantalupo
Marco Cantalupo – choreographer – (Italy) studied at The Scala Theatre Ballet School in Milan followed by the Hamburg Opera Ballet School, where he graduated. Several stays in the US gave him the opportunity to work with the choreographer Daniel Ezralow (Momix, ISO).

About Compagnie LINGA
After an important and international career as dancers, Katarzyna Gdaniec and Marco Cantalupo founded the linga company in 1992. As early as 1993 they are offered residency at L’Octogone Théâtre de Pully , a national stage located in Lausanne (CH), where they create a permanent space dedicated to choreographic research. Several prizes (Hanover Choreography Competition, Leonide Massine Prize in Positano, etc.) have been awarded to the company’s choreographers, whose language and artistic concepts quickly entered the repertoire of other companies as Dresden, Florence, Ankara Opera’s house, Mannheim National Theater, Portugal National Ballet.The choreographic process of the company has rapidly turned to political and social issues, exploring through dance social phenomena and their repercussions on the bodies. With go! (2004), a piece on immigration, the company developed a hybrid style, integrating a dance theatre research. emballe-moi (2005) denounced the mechanisms of consumer society, la kitchen (2006) dared to speak about domestic violence, mucus and angels (2007) questioned femininity, speeed (2007) queried our society’s fascination with speed, kiss me good night (2008) confronted the nocturnal world and carnal desire, no.thing (2010) wanted to portray a gesture as something unique, falling grace (2011) explored the relationship between balance and lost of balance.

Today, with more than 40 creations, linga has become one of the leading contemporary dance companies in Switzerland and is invited to the most important events on the international scene.
