MORE ON THE AVOIDANCE DANCE, IN 3 EPISODES (15 mins)
more on The Avoidance Dance, in 3 episodes is a new chapter of bowl to the cat to the fairytale (The Avoidance Dance), a project attempting to frame the action (and inaction) of waiting, putting off, hesitating, in the face of what should be our duty: expressing ourselves and communicating our ideas and opinions.
The performer’s action is exactly that: avoiding the space in which she should perform, and when she eventually comes on stage she never turns directly to the audience. She wonders what exactly she is trying to say, and asks the audience what they expect of her.
The division of the piece into three parts (and the repetition of the same passage for each part) becomes a reflection on the general distraction of people today, on the need for brevity and familiarity in listening and on how relations with other people have changed.
L’O.fficina danza contemporanea
A first work-in-progress study revealing the show’s construction mechanisms, this project arises from the meeting between a number of dancers/choreographers from different backgrounds and young dancers.
It centres on the common intention to bring together the experiences of each, in order to live through an event contaminated by different energies, in a historical moment when union and exchange are experienced as necessity and privilege.
