DANCE THERAPY

Since 2018, the museum has hosted a busy programme dedicated to dance therapy, curated and held by Marinella Freschi.

DANCE THERAPY

Dance therapy is a path of self-discovery, inner maturation and development of awareness. The body becomes a visible and concrete symbol of the inner world. Sensations, images and words not recognisable on a rational level take shape through movement and dance, to be understood. It is a chance to get in touch with the subtle language that, one step at a time, will lead to a new, but at the same time ancient perception of oneself, to the original genuineness that has remained buried and forgotten. Movement, present in every moment of everyday life, is recognisable in posture, gestures, expressions, words, sounds, actions and behaviour. Every act that takes place on the physical or relational plane has a counterpart of movement that takes place on the invisible plane. Unheard feelings, unexpressed emotions, denied thoughts, through energy move subliminal impulses that condition, stiffen, weaken, limit. The therapeutic aspect is to bring attention to and allow the expression of that which is blocked, to encourage the process of liberation, transformation and realignment.

ORIGIN

The origin of Dance Therapy dates back to the early 1900s, when in America, a number of dancers and choreographers were called upon to provide therapeutic assistance to the mentally ill, and numerous methodologies have been developed to date. The proposed method was created in 1996 by Dr. Elena Deepti Canfora, who combined her experience in the artistic field, research in the psychological field and her spiritual research path that began in 1975 in India. The principles of the method bring together certain aspects of evolutionary humanistic psychology and the Eastern vision, linked to the expansion of awareness. The research tools offered by contemporary dance, dance-theatre and bodily expressiveness are integrated with meditation techniques, inner and energetic exploration, in relation to the chakras. The mind/body/emotion relationship and the movement/therapy link are themes that bring together different fields, psychology, theatre, dance, painting, sculpture, where the exploration of the human is at the centre.

Marinella Freschi

Marinella Freschi dancer and therapist graduated in Danse-Thérapie at the Universitee Europeénne Jean Monnet A.I.S.B.L. (Brussels). Her experience started in the artistic field with classical, modern, urban, then contemporary dance, alongside a long path of theatre and inner research. Her experimental nature pushes her towards a continuous research that expands more and more towards the totality of expression, towards the deepening of the components that realise movement on a physical, mechanical and physiological, artistic level and above all in the relationship between acting and inner aspects. She works in schools and training support centres, with children, young people and adults, leading growth, integration and socialisation workshops, dance therapy meetings, meditation, energy exploration, expansion of perception and creativity.
