When do we begin?

When someone starts to write, according to the writer Italo Calvino, “we go from the moment when we could say everything in every possible way to the moment when we say one thing in a particular way”. In this choreographic laboratory the participants are engaged in a collection of experiments on the possibility of a beginning. How do we situate ourselves in the beginning? How can we begin again? How do we preserve the openness of the action? By studying the materiality of the beginning, we try to open space for developing a collective imagination and to generate new contexts and possibilities for choreographic thinking.
