Inclusive dance lesson by Parkinzone in collaboration with the Laboratorio d’Arte of Palazzo delle Esposizioni
Dance Well is a project born in 2013 in Bassano del Grappa in collaboration with Center for the Contemporary Scene (CSC).The project was inaugurated at Palazzo delle Esposizioni in 2019, with the exhibition Sublimi Anatomie and has become a permanent event in the space. An open, inclusive dance lesson dedicated to curious visitors wanting to test themselves and experience dancing amongst the works in the exhibition space, communicating? through their bodies with signs, gestures, colors, materials, and space.
The project is based on the healthy impact that dance, as an artistic practice, can have on the neurological system, physical performance and development of people with Parkinson’s Disease and beyond.
Dance Well brings dance into museums, galleries, gardens and parks, seeking : wherever there is beauty, or wherever the place’s context can be a creative stimulus and a source of inspiration. However, the project also feeds on the enrichment that the mixed group brings with it, made up of citizens, Parkinson’s patients, students, dancers, asylum seekers, people with reduced mobility and blind people. The result is the creation of an inclusive community, underlining the importance of combining culture with health.
The Palazzo delle Esposizioni Laboratorio d’Arte was founded in 2000 on the occasion of the exhibition Tempo! Journey into the idea and representation of time. Since then, its main objective is to to bring different audiences – in particular younger ones – closer to art, offering new and original paths to observe and interpret reality with the languages of the contemporary.
The exhibition is presented by Irene Angenica (Department for Preventive Education, MACRO – Museum for Contemporary Art), and Carlotta Bortesi will lead the lesson.
The activity is free and can be experienced online via Facebook.
