On the occasion of Sebastião Salgado's photographic exhibition EXODUS, Nanou presents four choreographic movements setting up a scenic universe that offers itself as a further (living) suggestion of what throughout the exhibition is solicited for static and vibrant images.

Exodus is the composition of 4 choreographic movements that address the work on Salgado's photographic image, engulf it and rewrite it through a necessary path of reworking.
Exodus is a movement that takes dancers and audiences out of their home territory in search of a new space that welcomes them. Thus Nanou's work, moving from the theatrical stage convention, recontextualizes itself in a museum to trigger a direct connection with the work, at once encountering and eschewing narrative. The choreography accommodates details and suggestions of extreme places, times and conditions of human beings. The body, light, space and matter crystallized in Salgado's photographs become the tools for rewriting the vibrant part of the image and renew the invitation to the gaze as perception.
