DANCE | SITE SPECIFIC
Starting from the author’s own autobiographical experience, the work manifests itself as a totally open process, a discourse in dance which investigates memories and traces left on the body by our culture of control, violence and offences. The project is conceived as a series of “protest” actions, born from solitary and meditative reflections. Mantric practices developed over the past few months of social distancing to train the body and its skin, to release what it perceives it has retained, to announce its wounds and expose the authentic “living body”, offering its vulnerability as the condition which allows its revolution to progress. The goal is to replace the rigid postures of defense and control, with new fluid, permeable and transparent postures. The movements are articulated as a stream of consciousness of feelings and sensations, shared to express actions of protest. The body becomes a territory in which the thought of “Care” and the freed gestures meet to express a revolutionary impulse born from one’s own vulnerabilities: a body that dances, aiming to dissolve the tensions stratified over time.
