HOODOO is a thought moving on a continuous stream.
It leads us towards instinctive places, makes tribal beats flow alternating them with melodies, sometimes evocative, sometimes innovative and, without breaks, it overlaps, melts together, mutates, transforms and dwells.
It evokes dreamlike, hypnotic and ritual images, and, at the same time, uses contemporary languages.
The two real artists on stage translate this idea, each with his own code: Gianluca Petrella with electronic music and jazz, and the Parisian Dominique Lesdema with fusion, urban and experimental dance.
Gianluca Petrella. He’s one of the most gifted Italian musicians in the world. He has worked with international artists and has recorded with prestigious labels, such as ECM, both for his own projects and together with Enrico Rava.
He’s also extremely active in many projects that trespass into other styles. He devoted himself particularly to electronics.
He plays with Jovanotti.
Dominique Lesdema (Paris).
He begins his career as a dancer in the Companies of René Deshauteurs, Géraldine Armstrong, Wayne Barbaste, Mia Fryedel and in the Jeu de Jambes Collective.
In the early eighties, he debuts in the Parisian clubs as well, where he comes upon funk and, above all, jazz-rock, a technique that becomes his reference discipline and the stylistic root of his research.
Through the choreographies produced for the urban dance Company Stormy Brothers, he brings a fantastic universe to life, in which the bodily agility melds with his imaginary world.
