During the year laDiscoteca offers insights on the topic of movement techniques and use of voice run by professionals visiting.

In this  four days edition La Discoteca gathers at “Corniolo art Platform” to practice and sharing on the themes of the body, the groups working and their relationship with the concept of authority.
