Atelier des Enfants with Quattrox4

Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi
13/12 - 18/12/2021


From Monday 13 to Saturday 18 December
Atelier des Enfants with Quattrox4
Palazzo Grassi

Atelier des Enfants is a project dedicated to art and education and to the relationship between artistic practices and educational research. Artists are invited by Palazzo Grassi to conceive and lead activities specifically for schools.

The second guest of Atelier des Enfants is the contemporary circus company Quattrox4, which has been promoting contemporary circus as an artistic language since 2011. Contemporary circus emerged in the 1970s in France of a mix between physical theatre, circus disciplines and contemporary dance. Quattrox4 focuses on promoting and teaching acrobatic and circus disciplines to children and adults by working on the development of fine motor skills and by using the body as a means of expression and rediscovery of the relationship with the other.

The creative workshop is inspired by the Contrapposto, half-way between equilibrium, imitation fragility, and endurance.

On Saturday 18 December, Quattrox4 will perform for the visitors of Palazzo Grassi.
