Kidimpro

What is KidiMpro?

KidiMpro is a performative practice of movement and improvisation, open to families with children from the 18th month of age, who explore together their body, gestures, movement, voice and creativity.

The improvisational techniques, proposed through play, are based on elements of dance-theater and contact improvisation.

During the course, small children, not yet able to correctly verbalize their requests, communicate to adults their desires and needs with a common language: the movement of the body and the sounds of the voice.

In spontaneous and sincere gestures inspired by children, adults rediscover their own childhood and establish an unusually extraordinary dialogue with their children.

In a game of encounters and touches, laughter and gibberish, leaps and rolls, children and adults move together in a child-friendly space and share it in an alternative way to the daily routine, discovering new levels of communication.

Small and big actors spontaneously create authentic performative acts and make each meeting unique.

She trained in the field of contact dance and improvisation with Thomas Kampe, Heike Pourian, Ray Chung, Emma Scialfa, Afshin Ghaffarian …

She has worked as a teacher and coordinator in several international and intercultural dance projects with adults and adolescents in Italy (Arte Magia; I Cuori Rivelati), Germany (eV Conduco; TPZ eV, Festspielhaus Hellerau, Dresden) and Morocco (TimArt, Timidert).

In 2018, with Anna Neuber and David Hülshoff, she founded the collective of performing arts bunterum, which offers interactive theater performances for families with children from 2 years.

From the experience of movement courses with families, developed KidiMpro, a new practice of improvisation and movement, suitable for families with small children starting from the 18th months of age.
