Opening and conversation whith the choreographer Marco Valerio Amico and the dancers in residence for the ongoing project Paradiso.
Paradiso is the beginning of a common journey starting from the Third Canticle of the Comedy by Dante Alighieri; like Paradise, it is another space inhabited by light and evanescent figures; a cinematic long shot in which to immerse yourself thanks to the music of Bruno Dorella – for a choreography in synergy with visual art.
The gestures lose all trace of naturalism to turn into an abstract choreography, whose meaning is in the desire to bridge the distance between the gaze (of the viewer) and the bodies in action. The limit of the backgrounds is forced, torn, deteriorated by the body that attacks it with its choreographic action.
The choreographic images are produced “accidentally”, and the bodies are immediately pulverized thanks to the process of abstraction that produces pure plasticity that surpasses all other instances.
