A FREE BODY Workshop with Silvia Gribaudi

A free body – Workshop with Silvia Gribaudi

The workshop is an experience of the poetic dimension that Silvia Gribaudi researches between the vivacity and presence of the body, where the cathartic dimension of humour and play are embodied in the expression of the body and of the gesture in each person. Through a proposal mixing contemporary dance training and clown, with a focus on the value of the fall, imperfection and mistake are considered as an expressive opportunity.

The workshop is organised in cooperation with the Italian Cultural Institute in Beirut and the Beirut Physical lab; it will be held from 8 to 12 July 2024, five hours of activities each day, with an open sharing on 13 July 2024.


Silvia Gribaudi is an Italian choreographer who also specialises in performing arts in general. Since 2004 she has focused her research on the social impact of bodies, having set at the centre of her choreographic language the comic element and the relationship between audience and performers.
