Psychologists call “Cocktail Party Effect” the extraordinary human ability of selecting and listening to a single voice in the midst of a multitude, ignoring any other information from the surrounding environment.
There are though certain meanings or elements which seem to represent an except ion to this phenomenon and to enjoy a certain easiness in trespassing the filter of selective attention, even when they do not belong to the auditory stimulus consciously selected by the listener.
This happens, for example, when we hear an unknown voice pronounce our first name at a party, while we are conversing with somebody else.
This interesting psychological effect becomes here a pretext to develop a choreographic and environmental research focusing on the topic of interference and humming.

Cocktail Party Effect intends to enclose the spectator inside a total performative landscape, rich in well-modulated discordant stimulations, to invite to a reflection on the development of new abilities of selection and attention required by the technological, and to suggest a new challenge
to abandon, based on the conviction that we already are beings in constant and forced mutation and that our look is already learning to operate its choices inside the swirling stream we are immersed in.

Sara Catellani

 

Sara Catellani has been working since 2003 as a creative interpreter for several theatres and dance companies, among which Roberto Castello’s Aldes, Lucia Latour’s Altroequipe, Teatro Franco Parenti in Milano, Franca Ferrari’s Progetto D.Arte, Ismael Ivo’s Arsenale della Danza, Francesca La Cava’s E-Motion, and she has been working as an assistant choreographer for the projects of Virgilio Sieni’s Accademia sull’Arte del Gesto. Since 2010 she also works as dancer and actress for several productions of Teatro La Scala in Milan and Teatro Regio in Turin. After graduating in Milan under the direction of Susanna Beltrami, in 2009 she was one of the dancers for Arsenale Danza at the Biennale di Venezia, where she specialized with internationally-renown choreographers. Since 20009 she creates her own shows, selected by important national prizes for the collective opera_di_polvere (Milan/Berlin) and the Collettivo Piratejenny (Milan) which she has cofounded. In 2012 she graduates in Psychology at the University of Milan Bicocca with a master’s thesis entitled “Observing the Creative Body. Neural mechanisms involved in the aesthetic perception of the dancing body”, published by the review “Sistemi Intelligenti” (Il Mulino, 2015)
