Parete Nord

mk
April 5 – 6, 2019
In Parete Nord, experiencing dance as interlocked movements means employing it to explore what is on the outside and attempting to lose figurative boundaries – dissolving into the world. The piece is organised as a diptych: the opening part, built on the incessant and close dynamism of the performers, is followed by a landscape scene, inspired by the “geographical disobedience” that every mountain territory brings with it.

Deposition

Michele Rizzo
April 30 2019
Teatro Franco Parenti
“Deposition” is a term borrowed from physics: it refers to the process of turning volatile material into solid matter. In this hypnotic and evocative solo piece, artist and performer Michele Rizzo draws inspiration from this process of transformation to present to the audience a possible reverse transcendence – from the virtual to the deeply humane and back.

ZERO
May 7 2019
"From post-global to post-experimental" is a true mix of sounds: from the latest proposals of Intelligent Dance Music to the urban sounds of South American cities, via the garage rap of metropolitan suburbs and a post techno between noise music and 4/4 drum beat.

Bizarre and exhilarating, the cycle “GONFLES / Vehicles” by Compagnie Didier Théron elevates air to motor of creation. The figures of these works are dressed in inflated latex: it is the air inside and outside the costumes that generates forms and deformations, energy and dynamics.

Walking Backwards

Alex Cecchetti
May 24 – 26, 2019
Secret place
In this site-specific work by Alex Cecchetti, the spectators are invited to walk backwards along a narrative path.

Hors-Champ

Ivana Müller
May 30 – 31, 2019
Situated in a colony of tents and performed by its spectators, this performance – in Italian premiere – questions our relationship to nature, to the other, to the concept of survival, to leisure and culture, through a series of meetings with “strangers” engaged in a scripted conversation.

Motus
June 4 – 5, 2019
Rip it up and start again is a show-concert-karaoke-manifesto which digs in the recent past to look at the present through different eyes and build up dissent over the idea of a “generation whose every move was anticipated, tracked, bought and sold before it had even happened” (Mark Fisher).
