A Peaceful, Peaceful Place originates from the encounter between Davide Valrosso and three dancers from the Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts in Bangalore thanks to the support of the Crossing the sea project, designed in order to create and consolidate long-term collaborations between Italy and Asian and the Middle East countries.
The work is based on some choreographic actions that combines different languages: Kalari Payat, one of the most ancient fighting arts, elements of yoga (Asana and Pranayama) and gestures drawn from ancient traditional Indian dances.
The result is a compositional architecture with a highly original language, poised between the sacred and the profane, a space for reflection on the theme of the ONE, a principle that points out the unity of all things. A theme dealt with in one of the oldest sacred texts of the Hindu tradition, the Rig Veda, dating back to around the second millennium AC, and then taken up again in the West by Plato Plotinus and finally by Hegel.
