The detail of the frictions between weightlessness and attraction.
The crossing of paths between a verticality and a horizontality that splits the flesh and the senses to the core.
The air matter, the air breath, the air caress which contains as much as it supports this scattered being.
Bathed in the heart of this space, the body is ether, incipient, but already sculpted, hollowed out by its own fall. A free fall that drags it and constrains it by an acceleration equivalent to 9.81 m.s-2. Thus removed from the past and freed from a future without redemption, the spirit comes alive and proclaims the legitimacy of its own race. The dancing body then dashes forward ever faster, defying time, in a final victory song rising towards its own finitude.
A celebration of freedom.
ARIA is a solo that will be created for and with the dancer Fabio Bergamaschi; we will deepen the question of the loss of spatial reference, the erasure of horizons through a work on space and time. Starting from an abstract and intimate premise, the choreographic research will be nourished by times of dialogue and reflection with Fabio, by our experiences and mutual references, in order to define the artistic material and make it both poetic and tangible.
