Flavia Zaganelli, choreographer and performer, in residency at PARC with her creation The Game We Play

What is a system?
How do I move in a system? What posture do I assume? What attitude? Am I free to act differently every time?
What creates my every choice?
Can I create alternatives to the ongoing system, while continuing to live it?

The Game We Play is a choreographic investigation that develops around the theme of the Game. The serious and fictitious territory of the game is crossed by three bodies, three players who are constantly on the move, play, follow or do not follow its rules and continually create new ones. The rules of the systems change, the landscapes change, the challenges vary and open similar but very different universes in which the players swing, like spinning tops, in a constant Dance of Flexibility.
