Hosted by Francesco Lanciotti and Caterina Pio, this weekend workshop presents aerial straps as a tool that can be accessible to anybody, if approached with personal awareness of our own body state, set of skills, and physical and mental predisposition.
Often seen as something that requires above all a particular strength, straps can instead be “lived” - a useful instrument to discover and develop alternatives to our physical vocabulary, or to enrich our creative dimension by smoothing techniques and deepening levels of understanding.
The workshop is therefore open not only to those already practising straps, but also to aerialists normally working on a different apparatus and people coming from different athletic and/or artistic backgrounds.
ABOUT THE TEACHERS
Francesco Lanciotti started his career with the “Compagnia dei Folli”, before graduating in aerial straps at “Flic-Scuola di Circo” (Turin) in 2011. Since 2014 he has been working for “Compagnia Finzi Pasca”, joining his first international tour with the show “La Verità”. He’s currently still working for Finzi Pasca as an aerialist in his latest show “Nuda”. He’s also an associate teacher at “Flic-Scuola di Circo”.
Caterina Pio studied artistic skating, contemporary dance and ballet as a child, and first ventured into aerial circus in 2011 in Bologna (where she was studying for her masters degree in Political Science). She continued her education in silks and rope, travelling in Europe and Canada, working as a teacher and performer, and she approached straps for the first time in 2017. She likes to think of the circus world as a ground to “train” human skills such as sharing experiences and defying borders.
