Igor x Moreno
Running time 50’
Igor x Moreno’s latest work is a piece that pulsates with energy and transports the audience to a dancefloor like no other. BEAT is a mesmerising solo danced by the superlative Margherita Elliot to DJ Martha’s electronic music. A reflection on what it might mean to be part of a generation that was brought up with a sense of endless possibilities, the choreography is a chain of reinventions that playfully, yet powerfully, express our need and ability to perform multiple identities. Elliot’s relentless movement, unpredictable and utterly transfixing, guides the audience to follow her through many different transformations.
