A daybreak work, the infancy of contemporary Italian dance taking its first steps in that distant year of 1982, Calore, by Enzo Cosimi, amazed the spectators of thirty years ago.
It was an authentic revelation of Mediterranean taste, of solar energy speckled with shadows, an original research expressed in peaks of (pure) dance while negating every code.
Now, thanks to its reconstruction, Calore can be considered the prophetic trail-blazer of successive international theatre and dance groups. Its temperature at boiling point is in the hands of a quartet of young people: the sea-swept regression to childhood and the way forward towards adolescence in a well-structured choreography coincide with an inner journey in search of subjectivity.
Calore: an amazing, fresh return, a conquest that is still generational.
