La notte è il mio giorno preferito
April 6 – 7, 2022
The choreographer Annamaria Ajmone presents La notte è il mio giorno preferito (“The night is my favorite day”), a reflection on our relationship with otherness which explores animal ecosystems. The work is inspired by the practice of following the traces of wild animals to understand their behavior. Animal and vegetable worlds intersect: landslides and cries break the quiet of a techno-cultural forest which incorporates and transforms the signs left by its inhabitants. Signals and mysterious instruments of perception make up its connective tissue. Darkness is the space of the absented presence of the animal, of intuition and of the encounter with the Other.
Annamaria Ajmone is a dancer and choreographer. Her work focuses on the body as malleable and changeable matter which is able to transform spaces into places creating adjacencies and temporal overlaps. She collaborates with a range of artists on projects of different kind and duration; her collaborators include: Cristina Kristal Rizzo, Caned Icoda, Palm Wine, Bienoise, Francesco Cavaliere, Muta Imago, Sara Leghissa, Industria Indipendente, Felicity Mangan, Flora Yin Wong, Natalia Trejbalova. She has presented her work in several dance, theatre and performing arts festivals, museums, art galleries and unconventional spaces, including: Venice Dance Biennale, Public Fiction, Torinodanza Festival, Théâtre de la Ville, Short Theater, PAC | Padiglione di Arte Contemporanea. As dancer, she has worked for Alias Compagnie, Ariella Vidach, Daniele Ninarello, Santasangre, Mithkal Alzghair, Moritz Ostruschnjak. In 2015 she won the Danza&Danza prize for “best emerging contemporary performer”. She is among the organisers of Nobody’s Indiscipline, an independent platform for the exchange of performing arts practices, and NESSUNO, a public network for a community of people who meet at night to reclaim and celebrate the energy and diversity of bodies. She is associate artist of Triennale Milano Teatro 2021-2024.
