Identity

SPECIFIC trains dancers able independently to handle their own body.

During the course, the dancers are stimulated to develop their potential through a proper athletic and artistic preparation, which is essential to achieve a very powerful performance in both physical and expressive sense.

The SPECIFIC program provides for a daily training based on the study of the mechanics of body in movement and on continuous attempts that allow the dancers to concretely experiment the infinite possibilities of movement suggested by the application of the physical and mechanical laws.

Thus the training is composed by specific exercises designed to acquire practical and theoretical tools so that the dancer can achieve high technical and performing skills, coupled with other exercises which require a significant emotional approach, in order to encourage dancers to integrate their own sensitivity.

Loris Petrillo trains contemporary dancers with notable technical and performing abilities for years: at the end of a study period with him, most of them have begun the career, joining in the staff of prestigious Italian and European companies.

The dancers who followed a dance training with Loris Petrillo worked for:

Akram Khan Company | Cie Emilio Calcagno | Balletto Civile | Keneish Dance | Zerogrammi | Theater Pforzheim | Compagnia Virgilio Sieni | Compagnie Zemiata | Compagnia Zappalà Danza | Compagnia Muxarte | Compagnia Petranura Danza | Cie Twain | SineSpazio | Compagnia Francesca Selva | Deja Donné | Compagnia Giovanna Velardi | Compagnia DNA |

Impromptu#01 - creation realized by Loris Petrillo for the dancers of SPECIFIC training
28 October
Teatro Traiano - Civitavecchia (RM)

 Impromptu#01 nasce da un lavoro prettamente fisico, intenzionalmente privo di  disegno drammaturgico. In questo breve lavoro, Loris Petrillo si propone di manifestare la fisicità di un danzatore contemporaneo, un esercizio allo scoperto dove l’applicazione del metodo personale dello stesso Petrillo dà vita a una performance che vede in scena i danzatori del corso Specific.
