Massimiliano Balduzzi: Physical Training








These six videos document a research in solo physical training developed by Massimiliano Balduzzi over more than fifteen years. Balduzzi is shown practicing a sequences of exercises/actions, integrating floor work and impulses/isolations, and finally putting all of these elements together in a session of “open work.”

This video was shot in February 2013 by Ben Spatz and Manuel de la Portilla at Cave/Leimay in Brooklyn, and edited by Ben Spatz. They can also be viewed through the Routledge Performance Archive. See also this article.
