gruppo nanou was created in Ravenna in July 2004 by Marco Valerio Amico, Rhuena Bracci and Roberto Rettura, as a meeting place for different research fields that characterize the work of the artists involved: the body, the sound and the image, that communicating one with the other find a common language that gives life to an organic work. gruppo nanou focuses its research on the body, defined as: body/sound, body/object, body light, which are all involved on the same level of the performer’s body, that becomes a sign among the signs. The choreography is used as the common language of the various artistic specializations.
