Ginevra Panzetti/Enrico Ticconi: HARLEKING

August 2, 2020

Monastery of Carmine, 21 Colleoni street
Bergamo Upper City  

Harlekingis a demon with an ambiguous and multiple identity. It calls to mind the Harlequin of Commedia dell’arte, a sly servant driven by the most basic proclivitiesand insatiable hunger. The onstage dancers, grotesque characters able to amuse without pleasing, evoke with their gestures the iconography of a wall decoration from Roman times, the Grotesque, in which monstrous figures appear and blend amid elegant, ornamental spirals. Harleking’s language has a special, hypnotic quality, so that the contents, often extreme and opposite, fuse into a metamorphic, fluid system, where anything might happen, but which confuses everything.

Harlekingdebuted in 2018 at Tanzfabrik Berlin as part of the Open Spaces Festival and has been performed in several European Festivals. In 2019 it was selected by the European platform Aerowaves for the Spring Forward 2019 Festival and by the New Italian Dance (NID) Platform.
