Prototype for a choreographic installation

We assume dance today as a prohibited practice, both for its aggregative and live nature, and for the continuous risk of physical and epidermal relationship that it naturally brings with it.
Let’s forget about dance as a “product” to re-discuss it.
We open the doors, we make visible the intimacy of creation, the approach to a choreography that has yet to be done. The choreographic investigation allows itself to be passed through.
The audience place is redefined. All the space is accessible.
We look to the past to imagine a future.
A bar is located at the entrance.

On 12 September, from 7.00 pm to 8.30 pm Nanou will open rehearsals to choreographic devices. A path of trials and errors, comparisons, chat that culminates with the staging of a prototype. The imagination is unleashed starting from the bodily mechanisms, passing through the dynamics of space and adding, over time, the visual signs that characterize the language of the company.
A notebook that notes the creative strategies for arriving at a composition revealed when the sun goes down.

Choreographic notes:

Space is vast.
The vastness lies in the choice of encountering a desert that allows itself to be watched.
Not a dramatized or emphasized desert, but simply inhabited.
The point of view suggested is always a very long field.
The dance takes on cubist characters, the gestures lose all trace of naturalism to transform into an abstract choreography, the meaning of which is in the desire to bridge or conquer the distance between the gaze (of the spectator) and the bodies in action.
The only certain thing are the images produced by the bodies and immediately pulverized into abstraction.
The dance considers all possible trajectories, transforming weights and forces into matter that reverberates up to the epidermis of the gaze.
The choreutic action is a continuous search for relational tension between the elements in the field.
