Ten years after Sport, Nanou returns in the dimension of choreography alone to deepen his own language, meeting the OvO band sound.

On the occasion of Dante’s celebrations, in collaboration with Transmissions Festival, with the support of Ravenna viso-in-aria and Fèsta, the company gruppo nanou and the band OvO rewrite their two latest projects, the album Miasma and the choreographic work in progress Arsura, to unleash a personal imagination that uses the strength of the radical languages of the two artistic realities.
Canto Primo of a collaboration that manifests itself here between sounds and infernal, dreamlike and disruptive images.
Arsura is a thirst that is generated thanks to the emptiness, the absence, the resistance of a body only in a vast space.
It’s a work of time.
Rhuena Bracci (historical dancer and co-author of the company) is an imaginary in movement, which cancels her own tangible individuality. She pursues shadows of purely physiological sensations that pour into the curved shoulders, in the continuous falls, in continually escaping from centrality becoming arid land, in fibrillation, waiting for a new transformation of the body’s state.
The revolutionaries OvO, in their ninth album Miasma, try to return how much science fiction and reality are, in hindsight, contiguous in our contemporaneity and how much, therefore, the miasma is close to us. Bruno Dorella (Ronin, Bachi da Pietra, Tiresia, GDG Modern Trio, Sigillum S, etc.) and Stefania Pedretti (? Alos) have taken a step back to their punk / hardcore roots, and have kept their typical organic and noisy electronics intact, as well as the radical contamination between tribalism and futurism, adding a significant amount of chaos, to the alchemical representation of the three phases of the miasma (Psora, Lue and Sicosi, according to Samuel Hahnemann’s essay chronic diseases dating back to 1828).

The two authorships merge in this first song, determining an object that is an elevation to the power of the two artistic realities.

“Miasma” è il brano che dà il titolo all’ultimo album degli OvO. “Arsura” è una coreografia in divenire del gruppo nanou. Le strade di queste due entità si incontrano in maniera del tutto naturale ed elettiva creando un cortocircuito dall’evoluzione imprevedibile. Questa versione di “Miasma” è tratta da “Canto Primo: Miasma/Arsura“, un lavoro multidisciplinare che ha trovato nello streaming l’inattesa prima tappa di un percorso che si costruisce anche attraverso gli ostacoli e se ne fa forza. Andato in onda in esclusiva su Dice.FM il 12 Marzo 2021 come evento speciale del festival Transmissions Waves nella suggestiva cornice del Teatro Rasi e grazie all’unione di forze di Ravenna Teatro, E Production e Bronson, ne diamo testimonianza con questo videoclip di “Miasma”, frutto del desiderio di due realtà aliene e inafferrabili come OvO e gruppo nanou.

Qui un estratto del concerto “Canto Primo: Miasma / Arsura” andato in onda in esclusiva su DICE.FM il 12 marzo 2021 in occasione del festival Transmissions Waves.
