Beat Forward marks the collaboration between Igor x Moreno and Collettivo Mine.
This new creation comes from the reworking of BEAT, a solo created only by Igor Urzelai and Moreno Solinas in 2019. Beat Forward is a work in which the original choreography is reinvented and multiplied in the bodies of the five performers, Francesco Saverio Cavaliere, Siro Guglielmi, Fabio Novembrini, Roberta Racis, Silvia Sisto.
On a soundtrack of techno music, Beat Forward is a celebration of the pleasure of dancing, where the energy rise in intensity and the sensations, shared between performers and spectators, transform.
The movement vocabulary focuses on non-verbal communication, using and modeling it choreographically. The audience observes the transformations of the performers – the gestures, the nods, the posture, the facial expression. The choreography ranges from the movement of the whole body to the smallest details, from the abstract to the expressive, creating a rapid sequence of images, constantly upsetting the reading and interpretation of the beholder and creating a hypnotic effect.
Beat forward is a research on how we identify and how we relate, on how we recognize ourselves or not in others and on how we are able to project multiple images of ourselves.
