A show by Jacopo Jenna
(Italy, 40 min.)

2 shows for this event

An intense dialogue between dancer Ramona Caia and a large number of multifaceted video clips that show the history of dance and performance, cinema and Internet. The performance is designed through the montage and processing of this powerful material, always keeping in mind its contact with the stage: in this way, a choreographic universe that concerns the past and the present, places and cultures that are near or far away, is born. Finally, the performance reaches its climax in a sequence of choreographies where the human being is absent and the landscape celebrates through dance, uniting clips and dancing bodies in the same intangible and pervasive matter.

The 22/09 performance is followed by a conversation with the artist, in dialogue with Fabio Acca
