Conceived as dances for different spaces, the cartographies of Echoes get into a dialogue with the space hosting them, so much so that they become an intimate activity, an ability of bodies to get in contact with the anatomy of shapes and with the beauty of measure. For Fabbrica Europa, the place chosen is the immense white room of the PARC, in the morning with natural light.
The piece involves five dancing bodies, drawing and composing seamlessly a choreography that is built on repetitions and differences, moments of loneliness as well as choral scores having simple and linear bodily themes, musically supported by loops and extremely long slow-downs generated by the sound of the melodic pop by R&B star Frank Ocean.
The composition of the image envisages a live-streaming dimension, generated live by the very dancers, an inner point of view that creates a close-up on the bodies and on the tactile detail of body and skin, revealing the potential ability of digital techniques to deposit particles of affection. Anyone can watch this virtual part of moving images from their phones via the live streaming during the performance, in another place, or at a later moment. Echoes expresses the light and at the same time radical tension of a dance, a kind of choreo-politics embedded in the thought of bodies.
