Italian première at Ravenna Festival per il nuovo progetto di Nanou we want miles, in a silent way.

we want miles: Nanou approaches Miles Davis’s immense work by looking for a method to rewrite his own choreographic language.
Getting inside the improvisational and compositional methodology of the musician to grasp rules and processes capable of disturbing and perturb the scene.
It is undeniable that much of Miles’s work is based on the processes of altered perception: his work on time, rhythm, the search for continuous new sounds, referring so often to “color” are all elements that have defined his language and made his sound “material”

Davis explained in his autobiography that already in KIND OF BLUE he wanted to express the an-cestral relationship between music and dance, therefore between time and space, mind and body.

To face Davis you have to proceed in a silent way, removing the trumpet, subtracting his music because the comparison is on the perceptive destabilization that Davis has managed methodo-logically to generate through all his work.
