LAZZARO is a site specific performance born from an idea by Giulio De Leo and developed in close collaboration with Erika Guastamacchia. The performance, initially intended for the production of video content, has shown an incisive character from the very first rehearsals in the relationship with urban places, museums, and cultural attractions, thus finding an unexpected site-specific performative dimension. LAZZARO reflects on the body's ability to regenerate movement starting from the fundamental vital acts, according to an organic logic of listening. A body lying on a table and revived by dance becomes the fulcrum of identity for the new community that gathers to watch over it.
