ECHOES transparent dances

This work involves five dancing bodies, tracing and composing uninterruptedly a choreography based on repetitions and differences, moments of solitude and choral scores, with simple and straight body subjects, musically supported by loops and very long lasting slowings down, produced by the R&B star Frank Ocean’s pop melodic sound. The composition of the image depends on a live streaming dimension induced by the dancers, an inner point of view bringing bodies and tactile details close to eyes and skin, revealing the potentiality of digital media to lay down affective particles. Anybody can watch this virtual part of moving images in streaming on the FB page of festival@festivaldanzaestate during the live performance, in another time or place. Echoes expresses simultaneously the light but radical tension of a dance, a choreo-policy, embedded in bodies’ thought.                


ECHOES transparent dances is developed within the research and production of TOCCARE_the White Dance, the winning Show of 2020 Danza & Danza Price, Best Italian Production.
