CollettivO CineticO in 10miniballetti

Directed, choreographed and performed by: Francesca Pennini

Dramaturgy and light design: Angelo Pedroni, Francesca Pennini

Assistance: Carmine Parise

Co-production: Le Vie dei Festival, CollettivO CineticO

Residency: Teatro Comunale di Ferrara

An anthology of dances balancing between geometry and swirl where the aerial element is the paradigm for a reflection on the boundaries of control.

Currents and storms, air fans and drones, birds and gran-jets become allegories of the relationship between choreography and dance in an investigation that bounces from the repetition to improvisation, from writing to interpretation. Among contortions and asphyxiating efforts it is triggered a respiratory exchange that mixes the volumes between body and space, audience and stage in a suspended and floating geography.

Friday, March 4th at 21:30 CET (Rome)

20:30 GMT (London) / 3:30pm EST (New York) / 2:30pm CST (Chicago) / 12:30 pm PST (Los Angeles)

DispensaBarzotti in Homologia

By: Rocco Manfredi, Riccardo Reina, Alessandra Ventrella

An eternal silence punctuated by habit. An old man, alone, in the vacuum, in constant drowsiness. Something comes down from the attic and awakens this numb body. Welcome to Homologia. Homologia is both a «studio of man» and a «studio of what is identical». A telescopic vision applied to human in the effort to produce careful analysis. A big illusion.

An impossible birthday party animated by hundreds of abortive attempts.

Domenica 6 Marzo @ 17.30

INC InNprogressCollective in toPRAY

Choreography by: Afshin Varjavandi

Performed by: Luca Calderini, Mattia Maiotti, Jenny Mattaioli, Elia Pangaro

Sound design: Angelo Benedetti

Light design: Fabio Galeotti

Project developed in residency at La MaMa Umbria International

For everyone there is a moment in life when we learn to search within ourselves. toPRAY is a long and narrow passage to the human soul. We move through the symbols we have ascribed to what we cannot see, to give life a different value. They say that ‘we have a soul’. But what does it mean to ‘pray’? Perhaps our very doing is an act of worship: the contemporary man acts on the body to draw a worship. What about if the most sacred thing we possess is our imagination that allows us in the course of our life to discover our soul?
