How does reading move us? These sessions will concentrate on movements of reading, i.e. the often invisible movements generated while reading. We will cultivate the tiny movements (of perception, of thoughts, of imagination) and give them the chance to grow, spread, and expand to the other; in search for new realities collectively composed.

The sessions will comprehend:
- The study of the reading-movement and of the performance of readership: with dance improvisation and speculative movement exercises, we will awaken a tactile gaze (a reading beyond symbols and straightforward meaning making), and we will practice dreaming as a possible way of reading, how might reading lead us to the dream, to dance, and to the unknown universe of someone else?

- The dancing with and within landscapes of paper
- The sharing of imagined narratives and their material manifestations (dances of the imprint, dances of the pencil, narrated dances)
