The Alphabet method is a tool for choreographic research and linguistic observation that makes dialogue the tool for verification and improvement.
Drive by the choreographer Marco Valerio Amico of gruppo nanou, the Alphabet method is a direct dialogue with newly graduated or proven professional dancers, for the transmission and verification of the company's choreographic writing process.
By choreography we mean the set of instructions that orchestrate the different scenic instruments (body, sound, light, space).
To work within the scene set up for the Paradiso installation is the opportunity to confront the linguistic complexity of the work that Nanou, together with Pirri and Dorella, has created: a dialogue between body, space, sound and light in continuous movement.
The encounter is an empirical procedure: given some choreographic information to activate a system of improvisation, instantaneous writing and observation, the choreographic system, clear and simple in its information, becomes the limit to practice in order to generate and discover creative opportunities.
The instructions are applied on the spatial level (use of space), athletic, dance, sound, light.
Thus a field of observation is established in which to highlight the nodes of a possible choreographic writing that feeds on the peculiarities of the subjects involved.
The instruction, while remaining within the actors of the generated system, must become evident and unequivocal, not necessarily decryptable: when we observe the firmament we perceive its accuracy even without knowing the rules that allow those motions and those spatial arrangements.
