Bodies are called to smooth their borders and orient themselves in space to generate relationship and meaning. The choreographic speech unfolds fluid and dynamic, marked by proximity, pauses, crossings and suspensions. GENESI moves towards the historical and cultural Mediterranean horizon and questions the dynamics of flows and the relationship with the inhabited space, as a space for crossing / welcoming and ownership / resistance. Everything happens in a circular space, a place that gathers and calls to gather, in which to be observed and from which to look at the world. A circle with immaterial, permeable and sound boundaries, cared by the two musicians. Photos Cinzia Cantatore
