Accademia Nazionale di Danza hosts international conference jointly with Conservatorio “A. Casella”
We feature our own translation of the official press communiqué, circulated by Accademia Nazionale di Danza, about this first important undertaking that highlights the hitherto scantily appreciated role of the musician for dance:
Il Corpo nel Suono
International Conference organized by
Accademia Nazionale di Danza at Rome (Italy)
in collaboration with
Conservatorio “Alfredo Casella” at L’Aquila
Il Corpo nel Suono is the title of the international conference that will be hosted by Accademia Nazionale di Danza (AND) at Rome from thursday 29 October to Sunday 1 November: a meeting organized by AND in collaboration with Conservatorio di Musica “Alfredo Casella” at L’Aquila in order to discuss the eminently peculiar relationship between musician and dancer.
During four days, the fundamental problems connected with the relationship between music and dance will be dealt with, not only from the theoretical angle but also and above all from the operational one. The program actually features a series of theoretical-practical workshops in the course of which the participants will have an opportunity to encounter musicians coming from Copenaghen, Paris, Vienna, Berlin, London and, naturallly, Rome.
An extraordinary moment of meeting and discussion aimed at exposing joints, functions, devices that articulate together music and dance and that preside over the creative processes implied in musical composing and impovising for dance.
The Conference will also deal with the specific theme of training the musician for dance, comparing the different experiences that operate on the international level in this direction. Besides the experience brought forward by AND, it will be possible to learn about and evaluate the related initiatives present at Conservatoire de Paris, Scenekunstskole at Copenaghen, MDW at Vienna and UNSW at Sydney.
Accademia Nazionale di Danza, whithin which several musicians regularly operate, has designed to make itself the promoting institution of a never previously opened debate among the different experiences that are current in the international field, with the aim to make of it a regular rendezvous and in order that it may become an important moment of growth and promotion of a figure, that of the musician in dance, usually considered as merely pertaining to the background.
