A year ago I started rehearsing/creating the project Terra dei Fuochi/ Land of Fires. Two years ago I started working on the concept. Thanks to @lamamaetc the show has been produced and had its world premiere in nyc. It isn't enough, this is a dance, documentary theater performance aimed to share the story of the suffering mothers who lost their kids to cancer in my home region in Italy. Cancer triggered by the toxic waste that has been buried or just deoppes there and burned daily. Since I started the project things didn't get better, it is worse than ever. I am calling it as it is: a genocide. I am eager to bring the show everywhere in the world. Contact me if you, or anyone you know, is interested in having us at their festival, college, studio, museum, gallery, outdoor happening. We are ready!!! @marziacaccioppoli @bianca.falco.nyc @marcyfalco thanks as to the numerous donors and the Domenico Paulon Foundation for the support!
We wish to start a dialogue, to inform about what is happening in Campania and compare it to everywhere in the world. Please, let’s make this blog https://terradeifuochilandooffires.wordpress.com a platform for brainstorming ideas and find hope.

Terra dei Fuochi / Land of Fires is an environmental performance project which blends modern dance, music, and “documentary theatre” to tell the story of Campania Felix, an area north of Naples, which suffered devastating loss of life due to a toxic waste disaster and scandal. After watching the interviews of mothers who lost their children to cancers related to the toxic waste disaster, Bianca Falco was moved to act.
Learn more about the toxic waste situation afflicting Campania Felix during Open Hours, at the informational exhibit set up in the space.

About the Choreographer
Bianca Falco has staged thirty-some works in NYC, Canada, and Europe. She graduated in Ballet, and studied Jazz Dance and diverse Modern Dance techniques. She came to NYC on a scholarship from the Nikolais/Louis Dance Lab. Her early experiences in Europe include performing with Murray Louis and operating her own dance school. She received awards and special mentions for both her own video dance projects and as a choreographer for film and theatre.
Bianca seeks to explore connectivity: the interaction and ties people have with each other, other living creatures, objects, and their environment. She explores how the physicality of movement is challenged, modified, and transformed through response and engagement with outer phenomena.
She is from Napoli, one of the most creative, and sometimes, challenging cities in the world. Through dance, she learned that she could transcend difficulties through translating them into modern dance. She hopes to lead everyone to a different perception, a different place, where limitations are beautiful and a key to getting people together to find solutions to social issues as well as personal ones.
Bianca is proud to announce that Terra dei Fuochi / Land of Fires has been invited to be part of La MaMa’s 55th season. The full production will be staged in March 2017.
I am happy to announce that soon I will announce the date and location of the Fundraiser event for my Environmental Performance Project “Terra dei Fuochi / Land of Fires” .

Interesting article about the benefits of physical activity per se, not connected to loose weight.
THE LINK TO THE FULL POST IS HERE: The Pilates Experience byArdella Bang
Interesting teacher’s point view, from Ardella Bang:
“[….]As the consumer, I would sincerely hope that you would take time to look up the instructors and the classes to see if it is the right fit for you (Like buying a fitting pair of shoes). By doing that, you are doing your research and taking responsibility for the class you are intending to take. Being well informed would enable you to better prepare you for the class beforehand, this could eliminate discomfort in your body after the class as you will be mentally prepared for what you would be in for. Living in a consumer driven society, it is important to be well informed as the decisions that you make will have a direct impact on yourself. In this case, the Pilates experience. I would encourage new students to take a private class with an instructor of your choice who charges the amount that you both could come to consensus with to study for a period of time.
This is a detailed physical practice. It is also an investment on your physical instrument. Hence, you will notice the changes in your body when you are able to grasp the fine details and apply it in your body.
Pilates is a method.[…]”
