Segni mossi is a research project born in 2014 from the visual artist Alessandro Lumare and the choreographer Simona Lobefaro in order to investigate the interaction between dance and graphic sign with children and adults.
We partner with Mus-e Italia to promote social inclusion through art in public primary schools in Rome (IT).
Since 2015, we have been conducting training courses and workshops in more than 30 countries.

We have been selected by ​HundrED ​organization as ​​one​​ of​​ its ​​100​ most ​innovative​ ​education projects​ ​across​ ​the​ ​world for the years 2017 and 2019.
Our goals in the work with kids and adults:

valorize the sign and freeing it from any representative subordination;
become more confident in using our bodies as comunicative tools;
explore the connection between the expressive qualities of the body movements and the expressive qualities of the sign;
consider the experimentation as a working method;
linger on the creative process rather than the result;
develop the ability of engaging themselves in group activities;
gain confidence in itself and in others;
value the differences;
stimulate critical thinking and aesthetic feeling.


What are Segni mossi trainings?
Meetings full of drawing-dance operating practices, there to experiment with groups of kids, teenagers and adults, but above all, involving experiences and personal growth opportunities. Practical work is alternated by moments of observation and elaboration of methodological aspects. 

Who are they aimed at?
Educators, dancers, art therapists, curious.

Which one to attend first?
There is not an order to follow, they are independent programs, all equally crossed by simplicity, rigour, play, taste for exploration and collaboration.

A "Segni mossi" online course? It's nonsense! Where is the group, where is the rehearsal room, the sweat, the moods? Is anyone there? Yes, there is! People from all over the world, from every time zone, with whom to build together a look far from the everyday. A doing together, a risking together, piercing screens by sharing nourishing discoveries.

Who said you paint sitting down? That while the hand slides on the paper the rest of the body should remain to sleep? You can draw with the whole body: running, jumping, laughing. You can draw without looking, with the body of the other, with your voice, in the air. You can be incisive and you can get lost in space. You can leave a mark even while remaining motionless.

Our workshops intend to offer participants an occasion to help overcoming fears and conventions related to alleged drawing incompetence, to become more confident in using their bodies as comunicative tools, to develop the ability of engaging themselves in group activities, to stimulate critical thinking and aesthetic feeling.

We conduct occasional and continuing workshops in school contests, festivals, museums, theaters, cultural centres.

Our participatory performances for children and their adults are barrier-crossing games between audience and artwork and occasions of unusual intergenerational relationship. They are designed to rediscover the wonder of leaving a graphic trace.

Al cubo

An experience between music, movement and mark. A permeable and transparent cubic structure. People are free to move around it.
A dancer goes trhough the structure, she inhabits the space.
A designer marks the traces of her activity and inactivity on the transparent walls of the cube.
A musician builds his musical score in relation to what happens.
The audience gradually become confident with the mechanism, they are led to take part. Some markers start going round, passing from hand to hand: people start drawing, discovering themselves through the walls of the structure. Everyone is immersed in his own research, everyone is part of the collective action. Marks, gestures reverberate in music. The experience finally dissolves. The sound stops. Buzz, words, smiles, running children into the space.


100.000 passages

A living picture that pulses, that changes, in which you are completely immersed and that will live for the duration of the experience.

We wear white panels.
We cross the space.
We are like a sea current, we advance, we draw back, we swirl.
We are the breath of the sea.
Everything is in motion: bodies, glances, smiles.
Then the color comes, our passages, our crossings leave their trace.
Traces of color overlap on the panels, adding, dissolving.
The sea is rough, the sea is celebrating.
The wind drops, the sea calms down.
Imperceptible breeze.


To draw, to fly

to draw to fly

9 hammocks hanging from the ceiling on enormous white paper sheets.
To draw while floating.
Trails, trajectories in the air, on the paper.
Overlapping, moving signs, vertigo.
