In the Veins of the Earth

New production by Compagnia Giovani Tiziana Arnaboldi

Driving the dance creation, poems from Alberto Nessi, read by the author.

read all

Six dancers and a poet, surrounded simply by a pile of earth, which they make their way through. The glances, the hands and the feet wrapped in the bare, dark earth, are seeds, awaiting the moment when they are allowed to express their individuality and liveliness, tracing the memories that reside within us, furrows capable of generating wonder, beauty and hope.

unsichtbarst2

analyses the vision of a body changed as a product of a particularly exposed performance. Laid bare, as if on a mirrored plinth and observed from all angles, the dancing body becomes a living sculpture which mutates, questioning itself, having to continually redefine itself and ending up lost, over and over again.

They knit and they prepare little shawls to sell, in what appears to be a tiny knitting workshop. With them, lives a little one, Arturo, who can never stand still. Every evening, Arturo looks out of the window to see a marching band passing by, dreaming, like Pinocchio with Mangiafuoco's marionette theatre, that one day they will take him away with them.

In the biblical sense, the sinopia of the human being can be traced back to the figure of Adam and Eve, man and woman, the first layers of an entire genus.

An Encounter with Silvio Perrella, Calvino and Dance

Silvio Perrella, Italian writer and literary critic, tells us about his passion for writer Italo Calvino (1923-1985) who, more than anyone else, knew how to project his imagination against the world as a screen.

read all

He used a direct and multifaceted alphabet, based on his appreciation of literature as an inimitable and irreplaceable vehicle of knowledge. This is also why his work encourages an exchange with other arts, especially dance. The stage will see the performance of two dancers creating extraordinary gestural geometries.
