WORKSHOP WITH Francesca Romano
The workshop will weave a journey through different exercises, eventually flowing into the free play. Focusing on reawakening awareness upon stored unnecessary tensions and those patterns that are not always functional, we gradually move beyond the field of mere physicality to embrace all aspects of the being. Only when able to recognise how much tension we accumulate in our system (physical, mental, emotional..), by releasing, we can transform the tension in real power while allowing the body to re-function organically and efficiently finding back its integrity. From that point we can enjoy the richness that unfolds in every small movement, especially when in connection with another person. In this way, we learn to not add, to not force, to not run away, we experience instead how to stay with what is there and ride every wave with honesty and wholeness. The partner in this practice is the best mirror, allowing us to playfully stretch the comfort zone and to get in touch with our patterns of reaction. The moments of free-play become opportunities to access a never ending flow of possibilities, responding intuitively with open mind and available body, crafting together an unpredictable interplay between confrontation & collaboration.

She started her studies in dance and movement when she was a child. Over the years she went through Artistic Gymnastics, modern and contemporary dance, contact improvisation, dance theatre, performing arts studying and working with many dancers and movement researchers. In 2005 she graduated at the School of Drama Paolo Grassi (Milan).

She works as a dance and movement teacher, performer and choreographer. Since 2013 she has expanded her research approaching yoga and martial arts having so far a deeper experience and knowledge about connection between body, mind and inner space. This movement field was a point of revolution for her studies and she started to follow this path, researching more and more what's beyond definitions, trying to always be in a state of openness typical of the "beginner mind". It was in 2015 that she approached the work of Bruno Caverna during a Play-Fight workshop. From that moment she started to follow this practice constantly, finding in its tools important points of inspiration, new ways to approach movement and life, new ways to connect with the others and herself. As member of Formless Arts team she supports the realization of specific projects and works as Play-Fight facilitator.
