videomaking: Giulia Fontanini
On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the Motel a> “First Room” project, we publish the full length video by Giulia Fontanini.
It was December 8th, 2008.
The company had won the “Fondo Fare Anticorpi” production award.
The Motel project was started. It would have involved the company until 2011 producing three shows that would give life to a trilogy, a real show in three acts that marked the Nanou’s language and its relationship with photography and cinema.
A minimal choreography written in the smallest detail to build a photographic sequence inspired by Edward Hopper’s paintings.
With the First Room, the meeting with the light designer Fabio Sajiz a> was decided that followed the whole trilogy and that is still collaborating with present and future projects.
The photographer Laura Arlotti completely followed the project winning, with her photos, the Hystrio prize for photography and presenting the shots in Lisboa “Luz Negra” exposition 2018.
The First Motel Room has hit major theaters such as Unidram (Potsdam, DE), Les Brigittines (Brussels, B), Nu Dance Fest (Bratislava, SL), Central Fies (Dro, IT), Fabbrica Europa (Florence, IT), Interplay (Torino, IT) and many others.
