Mid-Mountain Dancers Art Week Changsha | CN

International project

Within the CRISOL – creative processes project, supported by the Boarding Pass Plus program of the Ministry of Culture, the Italian choreographers and dancers Pierandrea Rosato and Michele Scappa and the sound artist Katatonic Silentio will be in Changsha (China) for a residency at the Mid-Mountain Dancers Art Week. They will work with the director-choreographer Lian Guodong and the choreographer and dancer Lei Yan on the project something not right together with the performers of  Mid-Mountain Dancers Pan Yu, company’s artistic director, Xie Ziling and Xiao Jin, accompanied by the cultural operator Fabrizio Massini.

Starting from everyday life, something not right questions the concept of “right”, or correct, in the most varied contexts such as politics, gender identity, collective memory.
Investigating the concept of “correctness”, the project focuses on everything that can be (and is) labeled as “wrong” or “incorrect”: reflections, policies, sexual orientations, collective and personal memory, history, aesthetics, art, body, movements, rhythms, traditions, future.

The first results of this creative process will be presented in Changsha as part of the Mid-Mountain Dancers Art Week.
