Bruno Caverna is a pioneer in creating authentic multidisciplinary body-mind practices sustained by an embodied movement philosophy drawn from over 35 years of studying and immersing in various of disciplines such as Gymnastics, Capoeira, Acrobatics, Contemporary Dance, Contact-improvisation, Taiji, Russian Systema, Watsu, Surfing and Freediving.
I began teaching in 1995 as a capoeira project leader at a psychiatric hospital. The highly demanding context supported his auto-didactic nature to flourish whilst the process was becoming deconstructive in its essence, the pedagogical ground for all the other future teaching projects that eventually expanded over 30 countries worldwide in the past 20 years.
I eventually transformed and recycled my lifelong experiences through my own inner resistances as the core subject of interest present in his practices and embodied philosophy. In 2012, Play-Fight and Liquid Body coalesced as authentic practices out of a need to label my lifelong research in the body-mind field. In 2016 I founded Formless Arts, an international cross-disciplinary hub that represents a moment of maturity coinciding with the foment of a community of self-responsible individuals.
My teaching philosophy consists in becoming a revealing mirror to one another by sensibly exposing the boundaries of our crystallized social masks and the acquired self-deceptive mechanisms. In the end, I am convinced that it is mainly through the hurtful exercise of constantly looking after our own shadows and confronting the human flaws that we may find a sense of wholeness from within, while at the same time acknowledging and honoring a diversity of artful expressions with substantial tolerance towards conflicting perspectives.
