The “Virus” workshop is organized on the basis of a gestural code, invented by Kinkaleri. Through this code, each letter of the alphabet is translated into movement. Thanks to this process, the body is no longer involved in the formal reproduction of a gesture in an aesthetic sense; rather, gestures are conceived as a “fact” of communicative value. The introduction of alphabet letters as a means of generating movement triggers a gap between speech and movement, effectively changing our perceptions of the latter. Dancers “talk” while simultaneously dancing, conceiving movement as a dynamic flow of gestures in progress. Set in a specific time and place, these gestures can help develop compositional strategies which, in turn, reveal new express possibilities.
