Leonardo Lambruschini (IT)

 
Actor, dancer and performer.
My journey in the performing arts started with the theatre, dance came afterwards. But then, when I encountered the Contact Improvisation, it was magic at ‘first sight’. Acting, playing and dancing were finally melting together as a whole. I dance as a student, as a teacher and as a performer with an unquenchable “thirst” for exploration and… for the ‘wonder’ on what happens in that ‘middle-land’ that is created in the process of receiving and returning, of uttering and listening to. I love the creative process that leads people to formulate plans and actions that promote the movement as a form of artistic and personal evolution and social expression.
Contact, confidence, movement and reliance are the central focus around which the teaching and the practice are developed, both for adults and children. Above all the reliance on the present moment as a fruitful and complete source of inspiration and meaning.
I’m appealed by the places and contexts where several art forms meet, communicate and create something new, transcending languages and differences.
I am also the co-founder and Art Director of Spazio Seme (www.spazioseme.com), an international cultural Arts Center in Arezzo (Tuscany) . There, we create opportunities for research, organize and manage festivals, intensive workshops, performances, artistic productions and residencies. In particular I develop and lead classes for children (ContaKids, PlayContact) and I teach Contact Improvisation for adults and students at Art Schools and Universities.
I am one of the organizers of the ItalyContactFest –www.italycontactfest.com– an international festival of Contact Improvisation.
I am grateful to have met artists and masters like Angelika Donij, Nita Little, Leilani Weiss, Esther Gal, Claudia Schnürer, Itay Yatuv , Steve Batts, Martin Keo and many others.
