Maps, presented at Contemporary Festival – Prato , photographed by Ilaria Costanzo.
From the project Alphabet , Maps < / strong> is a point of surrender of the nanou group choreographic research process.

“This experiment attempts to grasp evidence in the choreographic composition and in the reason why bodies (also sound and light) move in space and generate activity.
The evidence has nothing to do with the caption. For how it is understood here, the evidence is the ability to remove questions, even if it is not exactly decipherable.
An example that I often report is the charm about the observation of the stars. I am not a physicist, I can not decipher the exact reason why the sky is so composed and so moving. Yet I read it, for its wonder and its accuracy.
In that way I would like to read the choreography, although mysterious. Choreography becomes evident for its reasons that reside in a severe device capable of generating spaces.
The relationship with the look is verification. The relationship with the map is evidence. “
Marco Valerio Amico

Neverwhere is a perpetually inhabited space in which the viewer is invited to enter and contemplate. The spectator will not be led by his Virgil, space itself is the designated path.
Neverwhere has no beginning and no end. The duration of the event will be three hours in which the spectator / guest can enter and exit at will.
The color of light will act as a continuous perceptive change, as a lysergic, therefore ritual path, to generate a continuous disorientation of the host, who relying on his gaze will be able to choose what to look, from which angle, for how long and how far forward.
Light and color trigger the device with which to articulate a three-dimensional space in dialogue with the performative activity. Lights and colors that change over time determine a space – unstable – that changes over time. The scenic device and the costumes, by means of materials with a strong chromatic connotation, illuminated by iridescent RGB Led lights, wants to emphasize the perceptual instability so that both the dancers and the public involved lose the sense of the boundary between what is and what it appears.

sound: Roberto Rettura

Space is a map. A map the dancer has to respect to obtain the limit able to verify the evidence of the work, underlining the paths to be taken.
Map as aerial and as a path.
The map is evidence that allows the reading of what the choreutical action is taking place.
The task of choreography is to highlight the limit to find ways to escape, to grasp the creative incident.
The choreography is constantly centrifugal.
The action is permanently transitive
The choreographic relationship between the bodies always includes the whole space.
There are no solos, duets, trios…
it is always a choreography for bodies that act in a vast space and define alliances.
The relationship of distance and trajectories is in the perceptive trigger of the field that the body is able to generate and relaunch.
The body is placed in a four-dimensional dimension.
The action relates to the geometric areas by dismanteling them due to its implicit figural characteristic, because it does not work for a design but it is used as a displacement force.
Time necessarily becomes space because it is the reverberation time of the action.
The action is at its maximum extent because it is always beyond itself.
The action is a continuous rewrite the balances of the space.
The action relates to the area projecting it orthogonally and placing itself always beyond its axis of equilibrium.
The eye must take as much space as possible, there is no time to blink.
The choreography is born because it generates and reveals space.
The design of the space is the tool to highlight and clarify the choreographic activity.

“The eye of the photographer Gianluca Naphtalina Camporesi on the choreographic experiment “color takes up space” brought by gruppo nanou, together with Daniele Torcellini at the Ipercorpo – Il padre festival.

A unique, site-specific event, developed with the involvement of a group of architects who have supported the creation of the project. A tribute to the festival and the use of urban spaces.

project: gruppo nanou + Daniele Torcellini
choreography: Marco Valerio Amico, Rhuena Bracci
with: Carolina Amoretti, Sissj Bassani, Marina Bertoni, Rhuena Bracci, Marco Maretti
sound: Roberto Rettura
lights: Marco Valerio Amico + Daniele Torcellini
colors: Daniele Torcellini

Color becomes space: Daniele Casadio’s look

project by: gruppo nanou and Daniele Torcellini
choreography: Marco Valerio Amico, Rhuena Bracci
with: Sissj Bassani, Rhuena Bracci, Marco Maretti
special guest: Daniele Albanese
sound: Roberto Rettura
light: Marco Valerio Amico
colors: Daniele Torcellini

“Light and color are the tools we choose to articulate a three-dimensional space within which to place the performative activity.
Lights, colors and bodies that change over time determine an unstable space.
The relational dynamics between light, color, space and bodies are placed in a continuous process of definition, alteration, loss and reconstruction of assets, within a paradigm of permanent instability for the affirmation of a continuous disorientation.”

Images were made at Ardis Hall / E-production during the workin and research week from 12th to 17th Febraury 2018. The choreography path involved Daniele Albanese who helped the creative process thanks to his artistic contamination.
The path is part of the project Alphabet.
