Erotic Salon – The locker room and other taboos

                              Interactive debate on sexuality with psychologists and professionals


The Erotic Salon is an open dialog regarding personal experiences and a scientific look on the world of sexuality.

We will talk about images, sensations, bodies and desires in a protected and safe environment. Within the framework of EuroGames Rome 2019, the Erotic Salon will deepen the relationship between body and sexuality, exploring the physical, carnal and tangible dimensions of sex as well as the affective sphere, exposing the presence of these aspects within the world of sport.

We will talk about the locker room as the space where all the individualities that make up a team meet and share intimate moments.

How can the experience vary if we consider the locker room as a place where not only heterosexual people pass by? How much discrimination and prejudice will a locker room see if we declare it a free space? Sentences like “I’m rather not gonna undress in front of him, he’s gay” or “Better wait ‘till she’s dressed up and ready to go, I don’t want her to see me naked”. As if every gay/lesbian/bisexual person should automatically be attracted to pretty much anyone or as if every intersex/trans person should have separate locker rooms.

We will take it from here: let’s go on a journey exploring the relationship between sports, sexual orientation and gender identity.

Everyone is welcome, including non-LGBTI+ people!

Speakers:

Antonella Palmitesta – Psychologist and Sexologist

Deborah Peruzzi – Psychologist and Sexologist

Paola Biondi – Psychologist and Sexologist

Dance/movement therapy – Open day


 

Dance/movement therapy (DMT) is based on the fact that the mind, the body, the emotional state and relationships are interrelated. It is defined as the therapeutic use of movement to promote the physical, emotional, cognitive and relational integration of the individual, their affective and psychosocial maturity, the development of their creative potential for the purpose of improving health and well-being. “Dance/movement therapists” (dmt) are  professional figures operating in the clinical and / or socio-educational field, with functions of prevention, rehabilitation and therapy, through body language (dance and movement) in its representative, communicative and symbolic values. The APID – Associazione Professionale Italiana Danzamovimento Terapia (www.apid.it) recognizes 12 schools across the country that share a specific training of 1200 hours and an ethical code. The APID is part of the EADM T, the European Dance Movement Therapy Association which represents the professional Associations present in Europe.

In the workshop Elena Mignosi and Fernando Battista will offer an experience of contact with ourselves and with others through the movement and through the exploration of individual and group rhythmic modes. In a non-judgmental context, each participant will have the opportunity to find their own expressive modalities through movement and to discover the richness of everyone’s contribution, each one with tsi own specifics and differences.

Elena Mignosi is Professor in General and Social Pedagogy at the University of Palermo where she teaches Theories, strategies and educational system

Fernando Battista dancer and choreographer, he is Ph.D in the Department of Education Science (DSF) – Roma Tre University – and Vice President of Dance movement therapy Professional Association.

Rainbow Theatre – Lost Movement Company presents: “GLO”.
LGBTI stories through music and movement.


Directed by Nicolò Abbattista and Christian Consalvo

Co-produced by OPLAS – Centro Regionale Danza Umbria, Fattoria Vittadini, theWorkRoom, Fondazione Milano.

GLO tells about stories: all the same, all different from one another. It brings you inside a kaleidoscope where colourful images swirl to turn acts into emotions. It tells about people who love and desire one another. Women, men, transgender people who chose themselves and their own truth.

The postmodern beat meets the cha cha, goes through the ‘80s, slides on electronic notes as classical score, and drags the LGBTQIA+ world on the scene with all its shades: a world made of eccentricity, courage, boredom, freedom, makeup, transgression, tenderness, deep love, but also fear, madness and dark places to hide.

“So the thumpa-thumpa continues. It always will, no matter what happens, no matter who’s President. As Our Lady of Disco, the Divine Miss Gloria Gaynor, has always sung to us: We Will Survive”

Rainbow Theatre- “Ci metteremo la faccia” – presented by “Libellula”. A show
supporting Transgender rights


Written by Leila Daianis president of the Libellula Association and director of the Theater Company. Directed by Mario Misuraca

“Ci metteremo la faccia” (“we will stand up for it”) is the story of a theater company that brings on stage a show to save a theater in economic troubles. The show addresses a common matter which is usually treated in a stereotyped and superficial way: a path of the romantic feminine and masculine transsexuality that, besides attracting the audience, wants to leave a powerful message
