in residenza


@ Casa Bachi / Polignano a Mare (BA)


This dynamic research-oriented intensive begins with a warming torrent of protean progressions, moving us across and through the floor,  predictably and incessantly to unmaster and to get lost with lucid discipline.

The second part of the day proposes scores, partnered work, and improvisation studies in and outside of the studio to investigate porosity between flesh, bone and imagination.


The course will be held from 22 to 25 April 2022, every day from 10 to 13 and from 15 to 18. The workshop will be held in Polignano a Mare (Bari, South Italy).


If you are coming from out of the region, please contact us as soon as you can. We can work with you and our local networks to find lodging according to your needs and budget. Because springtime-summertime demand for rooms is high, plan to consider anywhere from 20 to 50 euros per night, or approximately 100 to 250 euros for the duration of the entire workshop. Contacting us sooner is always better in finding better rates. Shared housing is also a strategy to reduce housing expense, so please let us know if you are interested.


Participants will be responsible for their own food. Each day, during a one-hour lunch break you can bring your own lunch, or there is a local café near the studio where you can order lunch


The nearest airport is BARI AIRPORT (BRI) or Brindisi (BDS) . There is a Polignano a Mare train station with service to Bari.
