SPAZIOBIZZARRO IN THE AIR -ENGLISH-

Spazio Bizzarro IN THE AIR is an intensive professional formation in aerial disciplines with high-level instructors.

 

The project consists of 3 modules planned for October and December 2021. These events are dedicated to adult artists and acrobats of base/intermediate/advanced level, in small groups. The purpose is to upgrade the technical level through intensive training: 6/7 hours per day specific on apparatuses (vertical rope and silks or static trapeze and aerial hoop) more conditioning and stretching classes.

 

This formation must be considered as personal training to implement the technique of every participant.

 

At the end of the week, you will receive a certificate of attendance, that doesn’t qualify you as a professional instructor in aerial disciplines recognised by sports institutions.

 

To support and help professional collaborations of participants, the organisation will edit short personal reels and send them to associated contemporary circus companies, for example, Sonics, Circo Zoé, eVenti Verticali, Fondazione Cirko Vertigo.

 

This formation is sponsored by Ministero della Cultura and supported by A.C.C.I. – Italian Contemporary Circus Association (Italian sports promotion association).

 

You can choose one of the two weeks, according to your speciality.

Groups will be very small (10 people max) to guarantee everybody to be followed by instructors properly. To help the right flow of training, homogeneous groups of students will be formed and for this reason, we ask participants to have some skills that you will find in the form.

 

Training will be very intense and aerial practice will be integrated by warm-up, conditioning and stretching classes.

 

Nicola Bruni, Gianluca Gerlando Gentiluomo and Elisabetta Borrione, the organisational team, will be in charge of collateral activities.

 

Training spaces will be Il Dedalo, a rigged indoor place in the centre of Casatenovo (a small village near Lecco), and Spazio Bizzarro big top, located right inside Parco Vivo.

 

These locations are 15 minutes walking distance.
