The choreographer and dancer Damiano Ottavio Bigi and the director and author Alessandra Paoletti are at PARC for a residency at PARC with the new creation That’s all Folks! (working title), co-produced by Fabbrica Europa.
That’s All Folks! is conceived as an ideal continuation of our previous work, Un Discreto Protagonista. And if Un Discreto Protagonista was based on the origin of the universe, the physical and astronomical processes that have been translated into myth in different cultures, this new creation shifts the focus to the arrival of man in the history of the universe, or rather the relationship between man and the cosmos.
It is a work that, on the one hand, sets the objective of investigating the nature of perception and time, questioning the distinction between reality, perception, and representation. While on the other hand, it seeks a connection with something ancestral, with the rhythm of the environment surrounding us through the study of ancient rituals and cultures that sink their roots into the distant past and still emanate echoes of those mythological, astronomical, and geometrical visions that permeated them.
