Motel – The waiting room, full video

Motel

For the tenth anniversary of MOTEL project, we make public the full video of the last episode of the trilogy, THE WAITING ROOM .
After the awards obtained with the first two episodes, with the productive help of the Festival Equilibrio / Armunia and his artistic director Andrea Nanni and Schloss Broellin , gruppo nanou is betting on the final.
THE WAITING ROOM further deconstructs the dramaturgy of the first two episodes by dissipating the bourgeois interiors that had characterized the imagery of the choreographic project. The scenographies are transformed from “realistic” elements into geometries and visionary spaces.
The scenes, created by Giovanni Marocco, led the company to the ballot for the Ubu 2012 Award .
With THE WAITING ROOM , the trilogy is completed by giving life to a performance in three acts and an overall stage duration of one hour and thirty minutes. A minimal choreography written in the smallest detail to build a photographic sequence inspired by Edward Hopper’s paintings, then dissolved with this ending.
THE WAITING ROOM touches important European squares such as Nu Dance Fest (Slovakia), Vicenza Municipal Theater (Italy), Unidram (Germany), Centrale Fies (Italy), and many others.

Namoro

Awarded with GD’A-Giovani Danz’Autori 2004/2005 dell’Emilia Romagna

In Portuguese Namoro is the period of relative intimacy that usually preceeds the official engagement. Rather than translating it as “flirt” or similar terms it has been decided to keep the original.

With the vision of a fragmented and thoughtless “love speech” and with a sheer respect for the radical discontinuity of the language storm bursting in a lover’s mind: the story never gets the main spot. The voices of the story come and go, they disappear, overlap. Nobody knows who’s speaking: somebody speaks and that’s all. There is no more image, only language. But the other character is not a text, it is an image. The action embraces me because I’m the lover but it has no evolution at all. It could be the case of redefining a distance, because I have found my love object but I’m not part of it, no more part of it, never been part of it. The love object is a delicate and distant one, an object I like to watch, to observe, because it ravishes me.
