Improvvisazioni itineranti in Parco Sempione
For the fifth edition of the festival, FOG and Ariella Vidach – artistic director of AiEP – stage a project conceived for public spaces, engaging young choreographers and dancers and supporting young talents and their creativity. The project is an unmissable opportunity to investigate the spaces of the city. Under Vidach’s choreographic coordination, dancers and performers stage improvisations and site-specific interventions in one of Milan’s central public spaces: Parco Sempione. Searching for a new relationship between body and nature, movement and urban space, they interact with the city’s everyday life, prompting an unusual encounter with members of the general public who also become spectators.
Three choreographic actions are held simultaneously and in loop in three different points of Parco Sempione. Discover the map and how to attend the performances (to follow them you must also use your smartphone; we recommend the use of earphones)
Ariella Vidach is a choreographer and dancer originally from Croatia, who trained in New York in the 1980s with key figures of American postmodern dance, including Trisha Brown, Twyla Tharp, Dana Reitz, Steve Paxton and Bill T. Jones. She started her creative work in New York, devising performances which were subsequently also presented in Europe. In 1990 she moved to Milan and in 1996 she founded the dance company AiEP, with Claudio Prati. She lives in Milan where she teaches at Scuola Paolo Grassi and Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera.
