A sound welcomes the audience’s entrance into a black and gold space, illuminated by three lights that guide the viewer into an encounter with the dancer, her movements, her breath and her voice. What Stefania Tansini stages in My Body is an intimate and evocative attempt to connect with others. In this process, the vulnerable side of the individual is generously exposed and shared. The choreographer pursues her research on the topics of body and movement in an authentic form of expression and in deep contact with otherness.

The 20/09 performance is followed by a conversation with the artist in dialogue with Fabio Acca
