Street Trainers from the group Hoxton
Yesterday I participated to a street training session in Hoxton. I felt a bit awkward because I arrived late and decided to be both a viewer and a participant. Anyhow, it was really helpful because it made me a bit more confident of my surroundings. I just arrived to London from Venice, Italy. I've been having a bit of a rough start in getting settled here in the city (looking for a flat-share, job, fitting in, getting to know my way around). After the session I walked home with a different view of the city and I felt safer. I'd love to do more sessions while I am here and in any other place I go! I will be in Berlin with friends for new year's. I would love to introduce street training to all of them and have a session during that week.
I'm venetian/american. I will be doing a MSc in Law and Anthropology at the LSE for the year in London. I love languages and I am currently tutoring a PhD student in Italian here in London. I speak italian, english, french, spanish, and hindi. I don't have a place to live yet, so if anyone has any suggestions or needs a flatmate let me know! I lived in India for a while where I studied Indian classical dance in Rajasthan and worked with children up in the Himalayas. I will be around west kensington a lot dancing Odissi at the Bhavan Centre, Institute of Indian Art and Culture.
I am working with Lottie for the Hoxton Hall project.
i am a dancer, but street training interests and challenges me in many ways. i think i have always done my own version of street training naturally, and will always have this, but want to keep street training for sure.
I'm part of the group who will perform 'Street Training' at the Urbanism Season at Hoxton Hall.
I love improvisations, spontaneity, energy from accumulated people or empty spaces, languages spoken and unspoken, reversed and rubbished and let out, time and space for the subtleties and growths of life, our sensing.
