Mapping worlds
Mapping worlds


Mapping worlds is a programme of movement workshops for children aged 6 to 8 designed to encourage creative exploration of the relationship between the body and space.

Taking its cue from the senses of touch, hearing and sight, the workshop will invite participants to listen to themselves, to get to know themselves, to express themselves and to transform together through a sensitive relationship with that which lies outside them.

At a time when our experience with others is heavily restricted, mapping worlds is a space in which we can safeguard a joyful and inquisitive rapport with the outside world and experience both the self and the world through movement practices allowing individual expression and enhancing differences.


The workshops can be followed either continuously or individually, and they provide for an exploration pathway sensitive to movement guided by dancers and educators Marina Donatone, Susanna Odevaine, Sarah Silvagni and Teresa Noronha Feio, enriched with encounters with dancer and choreographer Elena Giannotti and with sound designer Painé Cuadrelli, both of whom are involved in conducting workshops for adults at the Mattatoio and who will be taking part in the programme devoted to children by sharing their artistic practices with them.
