regardless of field of provenance, the event is addressed to whoever is willing to dive into a week long experience aimed to enrich and widen own self-discovery path within a varied community of people: amateurs and/or professionals, all open to share and question where they are now.

7 full days of Movement Immersion with Bruno Caverna who will share openly his lifelong experiences in various disciplines through Play-Fight, Liquid Body and Becoming Animal. The practices will operate as main common channels to achieve a deeper understanding and communication among the group, at all times integrated and supported by what participants will actively and consciously bring everyday in the space.

Formless Arts aims to provide concrete and diverse opportunities of studies, exchanges, inter/intra connections between people and human practices, to empower individual journeys by offering a space where to meet, integrate and dialogue on a deeper since formless level.



A self-empowering physical practice that weaves together cooperative qualities of any type pf partner dance with highly refined confrontational principles from internal martial arts. The exploration goes beyond the fringes of mere physicality. The reciprocal mirroring through the physical drills leads the practice into a deep space of self-discovery, for acknowledging and revealing myriad aspects in human interactions and expressions. The core guidance is to learn how to preserve own integrity and inner calm under controlled stress-induced events while being engaged through playfully confrontational interactions. The embodiment of principles of non-resistance and non-violence is at the top of all achievements for allowing flow to be embodied, returning thus to our original state of being.

A flowing practice that proposes the deconstruction of acquired, dysfunctional movement patterns by rewiring the nervous system for adaptability, resilience and prowess. The activation of wave-spiral principles and spinal undulations are the doorway to allow participants to groove delightfully in the rhythmical motif of our primeval fluid nature. In the end participants are left with self-empowering tools and guidelines to integrate their experiences into daily activities outside and inside the dance studios. By liquefying our minds, we may dissolve and crystallise lifelong blockages sculpted in bodies over time.

What is strikingly fascinating upon observing animals is the display of tremendous physical tenacity and inner clarity whenever engaged in challenging situations. They seem to not have any concept of themselves and therefore there are seemingly no expressions that are not true and accurate.
As opposed to merely provide a set of new ideas, movements and techniques within a familiar playground, Becoming Animal’s overall aim is to lead participants safely to explore uncharted territories.


FORMLESS ARTS proposes a transdisciplinary hub aiming for deeper levels of communication, interrelation and boundless exchanges between art-forms of all fields. Being in dialogue with the formlessness of our creative source that honors all human creations and expressions. In the process of recognizing conceptualization for that what is, the individual boundaries that become our segregating filters how we perceive reality will tend to disperse. Conversely what will become more prominent is the rediscover of that raw curiosity of child to explore life free of concepts, a latent quality we all share despite of the massive external divergences that take on shapes as we become more or less indoctrinated. Returning to formless origins requires a constant exercise to distinguish the ever-changing values culturally acquired and what remains constant within this ceasaless river of changes.


Originally from Rio de Janeiro Bruno started practicing a vast array of physical practices at the age of 8, such as capoeira, contact-improvisation, contemporary dance, acrobatics, taiji, qi-gong and russian martial arts – systema, just to mention a few. In 1994 Bruno started teaching/sharing passionately and tirelessly his life experiences with people from all walks of life in more than 30 countries. He authored Formless Arts, an umbrela for Play-Fight and Liquid Body practices as a result of a vision that questions our crystalized concepts while at the same time interweaving a multitude of disciplines and tribes through a common thread. Currently Bruno is based in Russia where he is given the privilege to learn internal martial arts and other concealed knowledge from renowned russian masters.
