DESCRIPTION OF THE PERFORMANCE:
We invite you to a after-workshop performance created by Rossana Gamson, an award-winning and highly acclaimed choreographer from Los Angeles. Rossana visits Łódź again to share with us her knowledge and experience. She will run 7-day, original workshops which will be concluded with a after-workshop performance based on improvisation and put on at the International Theatre Festival Retroperspektywy 2019.
Rossana Gamson's method of working develops dancers’ and actors’ dynamic range, their musicality, interpretive skills and an ability to enter deeply into the work of others, the work of the dance partners. Her work is inspired by games and it provides choreographers and directors with a new toolkit for movement invention and new compositional strategies. She offers a rigorous yet constructive investigation of artists', dancers', choreographers', actors' and directors' physicality and imagination.

FRAGMENTS OF REVIEWS:
"Like the always welcome dinner guest who brings an insightful new perspective to any conversation, Gamson is consistently one of L.A.’s most provocatively thoughtful choreographers." (Ann Haskins, LA Weekly)
"Rosanna knows her compositional technique inside and out and is able to communicate these ideas and concepts clearly through her highly developed methods of teaching. She inspired me in ways that pushed my artistic voice and her no-nonsense approach encouraged me to develop my own creative thought processes. I would never be the artist I am today without Rosanna’s invaluable mentorship." (Daniel Charon - Artistic Director, Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company)
"Rosanna is an "Artistic Scientist" who goes inside your brain to analyze your thoughts and your goals and helps you to make them a reality. She gives you many different approaches on how you can choreograph and makes you see a new perspective on how you can create your work when you feel lost and don't quite know the direction you want to take." (Jacques Heim, Artistic Director of Diavolo- Architecture in Motion)
