The Exploded Body is a Laboratory of Movement where Facciocose invites performers and people from diverse backgrounds to get involved in an ongoing training and research process focus on the exploration of animals movement and construction of body masks.

We welcome individuals from different backgrounds interested in training their bodies and exploring different approaches towards research practices.

Focus of this Laboratory of Movement will be on:

  • Study of animals’ body and behaviour.
  • Embodiment.
  • Construction of body mask and body extension.
  • Study of microbes and viruses’ body and movement.
  • Devising techniques.

In this Laboratory of Movement, we will be working with Physical Theatre and Devising Techniques.

Our experimental approach aims to establish a conversation between Science and Theatre. We want to research and create a common language where the diversities of disciplines and approaches find unity in a creative process.

Facciocose is a Physical Theatre Company founded and directed by Monika Gravagno. We provide physical theatre training, and devise our own theatre productions.

Facciocose is a creative hub for experimental research projects in Physical Theatre, Design and Science. We have created cross-disciplinary projects in London and Europe, in which experimentation and competence work in synchrony to innovate Art and Theatre.
