Cristina D’Alberto

Thurs 2nd May 2024, 10am

About the class

In this class, we will embark on an exhilarating journey of shared discovery, immersing ourselves in the world of movement through an amalgamation of somatic practices. This process will serve as a catalyst, unfurling your authentic movement.

Together, we will navigate a myriad of imaginative and physical spaces through a series of designed tasks. This transformative journey will lead us through a whirlwind of profound emotions, culminating in explosive physical manifestations.

We will seamlessly meld with the floor. Gravity will be our trusted guide, leading us into and out of the floor, and we will relish the thrilling ride on its wave. We will cut through the air with determined precision. We will turn ourselves upside down! We will train our bodies to thrive within the spectrum of readiness and acceptance, oscillating between the animalistic and the contemplative!

Cristina D’Alberto

Cristina D’Alberto is a choreographer, performer, contemporary dance teacher and mother of two who lives, work and study across the UK, Italy, Netherlands and Germany. She earned her MA in choreography from Codarts University of the Arts (Rotterdam) and Fontys School of Fine and Performing Arts (Tilburg). Currently, she is pursuing an MA in Clinical Dance Therapy.

During her career, she toured internationally as a member of the Italy-based TPO company, a pioneering dance company using interactive technology in performances for young audiences. As a freelance performer, she collaborated with several acclaimed choreographers and directors. Her choreographic work, performed throughout Europe, delves into identities and human relationships. It examines the tangible and intangible connections between people and the artificial, natural, and imagined spaces they inhabit.

More recently, her work uses concepts of reflexivity, positionality, and situatedness to investigate the internal and external transformations of moving pregnant and ageing bodies.
