Mercurial George is the portrait of someone living on the margins of society, immersed in a personal world made of rubble, of piles of things, of childish innocence and scared mystery. A destabilising, funny and weird solo with a minimalist choreography still rigorous and confusing, which becomes a tool for digging at the very heart of our own identity, in order to find the roots of ourselves.
For the show, a group of young dancers (dance companion) will go with the audience, inviting the spectators to watch the show, then discuss and share their impressions right after watching it: an initiative of the Europeanproject Pivot Dance by Centro per la Scena Contemporanea of Bassano del Grappa along with the contemporarydance three-year course of Balletto di Roma.
