A wonderful playground where I can (re)discover my movability. Not doing, just being. Being danced. No work, just play! Freedom. ❤️
Ellen

I totally support what you’ve moved within me, because that is the gift I gave myself.
Roger

What Jerôme’s class brings me is a place of transformation and recycling of my emotions, through the body. I’m more self-aware in relationship as a result. It also strengthens my faith in human connection, because of the fun and kindness that develops.
Tamara
future teacher

In this space I can safely practice how to bring the relationship between my body and my mind into one of More equal and Playful cooperation, rather than one of discipline and domination. I become aware – can notice how – my Body/mind are always in dialogue, never static, and I am encouraged to move in the flow – yin/yang – without judgement or resistance. At least, that’s the goal 😉🙏💛
Michelle

Getting over mental boundaries about being close to others

Interacting with others on a different level also helps me deal with daily social interaction
Chronic pain management, making it easier for my body to return to a natural flow state
And feeling more at ease in my own body
Julia

Magical, just magical. The space: created by beautiful souls and their energies 💫The body is indeed sore today! 😆 and the emotional body allows some soreness too, some sadness to sit along with the amazement of receiving love 💛🚿💦
Michelle

Yes. And yesterday’s ending ceremony was the cherry on top. How important it is to be invited and to invite ourselves to connect and treat each other with kindness, love and care. We all know that as human beings and the mamals we are that this helps us thrive. 🙏 to the soul (I don’t know her name) who thought of inviting us to do this process.
Kim

I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed and appreciated the class – the community the safe space the JOY in the body! 💫 you have (co) created something special 💛
Michelle

So what really helps me as a musician is first the connection with my body, which i believe is integral in a performance, being musical or not, beyond that you also explore communication with your colleagues in a different way, as the same you would do in a improvisation in music, you would explore the movements and geometry of your own body in relation to another, counterpoint… so for me is also an ludic way of doing the same i would do in musical dialogue, but without all the self judgments and technical struggles with instruments

Last but not least, connecting your breathing to your movement is an excellent way of connecting better my breathing in my playing, in my case since i play wind instruments is even more, but for a string player or whatever would still be important and healthy, usually we tend to create unnecessary tension and disconnection with our breath when playing

What Jerôme’s class brings me is a place of transformation and recycling of my emotions, through the body. I’m more self-aware in relationship as a result. It also strengthens my faith in human connection, because of the fun and kindness that develops.
Tamara
future teacher

In this space I can safely practice how to bring the relationship between my body and my mind into one of More equal and Playful cooperation, rather than one of discipline and domination. I become aware – can notice how – my Body/mind are always in dialogue, never static, and I am encouraged to move in the flow – yin/yang – without judgement or resistance. At least, that’s the goal 😉🙏💛

We all know that as human beings and the mamals we are that this helps us thrive. 🙏 to the soul (I don’t know her name) who thought of inviting us to do this process.
Kim

I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed and appreciated the class – the community the safe space the JOY in the body! 💫 you have (co) created something special 💛
Michelle

So what really helps me as a musician is first the connection with my body, which i believe is integral in a performance, being musical or not, beyond that you also explore communication with your colleagues in a different way, as the same you would do in a improvisation in music, you would explore the movements and geometry of your own body in relation to another, counterpoint… so for me is also an ludic way of doing the same i would do in musical dialogue, but without all the self judgments and technical struggles with instruments

Last but not least, connecting your breathing to your movement is an excellent way of connecting better my breathing in my playing, in my case since i play wind instruments is even more, but for a string player or whatever would still be important and healthy, usually we tend to create unnecessary tension and disconnection with our breath when playing

Ellie & LO

Ellie &Lo – research  projet. 
Concept/ Direction Karine Guizzo
Performers Ellie Bishop , Lorenzo Capodieci 

“starting from improvisation, I want to develop a physical conversation, with a specific dance vocabulary: movements, wild and particular, rich in forms and dynamics, characteristic of dancing in a club( as starting point ) We work from virtuosity and competition – partly as a struggle, where each dancer shows its own way  – but also as an interplay and sensuality. 

Connection and intimacy with the audience is an important point in this project.ELLIE & LO can only be experienced up close and intimately with a small audience, who I consider – in an inclusive approach, to be part of the research project.

ME MONUMENTA!

ME MONUMENTA! is a research  project : a solo by Karine Guizzo ,with the performer Lorenzo Capodieci.Her inspiration comes from nature, where males flaunt their ‘parure’’ in colorful seduction to attract their females but also from the extravagant drag shows with all their lavish looks and acts

The performance is an experimental composition of( minimalist) dance and visual art  in which we explore and celebrate ’We humans as monuments’’. The second part of the project consists in performing in unusual places , like cafes , hairdresser salons or in an  art gallery  

Friday 9th September, at 17:30 and 19:00, we will present ME MONUMENTA

I am interested in deepening into several things that I have been studying for a few years about psychoacoustics, and improvisation methodologies.  My stay in Coud is based on defining a line of composition for this group of musicians in particular
