Coefore Rock&Roll by Enzo Cosimi is a concert-performance, a dilated and horizontal choreography, involving visual and spatial elements in transmedial and interdisciplinary forms.
With a realm of childhood nightmares, broken toys and coloured blankets – a visual horizon inspired by the artist Mike Kelly – there looms the ferocity of a heinous crime that questions both the individual and the whole of humanity: the act of killing the one who brought you to life.
The work discerns the dual profile of Orestes, imprisoned within the conflict between imposing a new order upon the world and yet being damned for life for the murder of his own mother. In the chill of an implacable love and revenge, the icy yet passionate figures of Clytemnestra and Electra stand out, accompanied by the tribal echoes of the Furies (Erinyes), led here by an icon of club culture and Roman and international experimental techno music, Lady Maru.
The structure of the choreography unites text, vision and performative action into a fluid and poetic dramaturgy. This hybrid form of the work allows the performative language to trespass into other disciplines, in particular music and the visual arts, in the construction of a choreographic installation with a dramaturgy both horizontal and expansive.
