The research for this project goes through two intersecting lines and is based on a few key words:

Linea Umana (= human line). Proceeding from images and atmospheres,
whose key words are exposure, generality, post-industriality

Linea Fisica (= physical line). Research of a supporting technique,
whose key words are impulse, exposure, repetition

Every single artist has the possibility to hide him/herself through technique.
How to go beyond the three levels of exposure (ourselves, the other performer, the audience) and keep the same sincere impulse of expression?
Why not to try to expose the two dancers bodies, on the sacred scene?
Which taste emerges when the performers get closer to the audience, by breaking the well known “fourth wall”?
Which is the border between the audience and the dancer?


Giovanna Rovedo, dancer and anthropologist, graduated in Anthropology at the University La Sapienza in Rome. She also graduated at the Accademia Nazionale di Danza in Rome and then she continued her dance studies at the Martha Graham Dance School and at the Merce Cunningham Dance Company in New York.

Between 2010 and 2015 she has been working with several companies in Italy and abroad, such as Umbra/Solis, WhyCompany, D’Amo’, Evidanse, Dimensionen, Ortoteatro and collaborated with the artist Nora Lux.
