Esercizi per un manifesto poetico
Running time 40’
Esercizi per un manifesto poetico (Exercises for a poetic manifesto) is Collettivo MINE’s debut work, created as the company was founded. The manifesto is written through movement, in a dance practice composed by five collaborators. The individual’s breath and the group’s unison merge together; bodily plasticity becomes inspiration for the danced language and for a collective poetics. The piece revolves around a single staged action, both powerful and clearly structured, which is a tool for shared writing, capable of generating a unified body. A hypnotic and fascinating piece of choreography, which investigates the co-presence of rigorous scores and of a vibrant and welcoming affective performance.
Collettivo MINE was born out of the artistic encounter between Francesco Saverio Cavaliere, Siro Guglielmi, Fabio Novembrini, Roberta Racis and Silvia Sisto. MINE is a creative experiment, an attending to synergies that develops an artistic research focused on the sharing of practices, experimentations and languages.
