The Echoes workshop sees the meeting of nine young dancers with a group of inmates from the Potenza Prison. Echoes is a journey that collects physical responses of distant and recent memories. A laboratory of open ideas, where everything is possible, where everything is sensitive and listened to. The body becomes the physical response and sounding board of the experiences that will be shared within the 3-day work.

In 2002 he is a student at the Accademia Isola Danza directed by Carolyn Carlson, where he met the currents of North-European dance and movement research in the United States.He continued his dance studies with some of the teachers he met at the Biennale. In 2013 he undertook his first personal research project on the movement that saw him investigate the recovery of an instinctive movement, a research that led him to the realization of a training in the forest for three weeks. From there he developped some intuitions: a primitive / poetic movement that refers to a writing for images in which signs, space and moving spells are intertwined.
