    Alphabet: Method is a direct dialogue with dancers for the transmission and verification of gruppo nanou choreographic writing process.
    The meeting aims at the experiment by going through some choreographic instructions to activate an improvisation system that highlights the nodes of a possible body and scene writing.
    The instructions are abstracted to let each body use its own identity.
    The meeting plan takes place on redefining the choreutic space, ascertaining its functionality, treating the figure and the design of the body and choreography as an inevitable “waste”.

    “The action relates to the geometric areas, undoing them for its implicit figural characteristic, since it does not work for a drawing but is used as a displacement force.
    Time necessarily becomes space because it is the time of reverberation of the action.
    The action is at its maximum amplitude since it is always beyond itself.
    The action is a continuous rewriting of the imbalances of space.
    The action relates to the area by projecting it orthogonally always going beyond its own axis of balance.
    The gaze must engulf as much space as possible, there is no time to blink.
    The choreography was born because it generates and reveals space.
    The design of the space is the tool to highlight and clarify the choreographic activity. “
