platform A35


Borderlight is the second chapter of a project thought as part of a triptych where the protagonists are beauty and fulfillment, revealed in the moment in which the error is faced to turn it not int o a failure, but into an opportunity.
The whole itinerary is marked by a resistance against the change, by the certainty of evolving, when actually exists a state of motionless in own position. The attempt of a dialogue among three elements/ characters: my reason, my body and the other, in that specific case, a rudimentary machine guided by reason/ body. Then the dark, the unknown, the risk of being contaminated by what does not belong to you. Gradually, an outstretched look in ahead, to be certain of will to proceed. Fragments of me, corners of my skin, they are exhibited. The muscles are tightened, they tense, they contract, they are trained for the conflict. The body is my armour, the skin is my cuirass.

I keep on walking, cannot stop. I am not alone. Another step. On. Off. The attempt to remain fixed, in crystalline, perfect, sure positions, but already fallacious, false. I move, but I do not change. I am not ready. My body is only a naked body. I am shown in full light.

I am in the Bordelight. ERROR.
It changes the space. ERROR.
Control loss. ERROR.
Cut, fracture, spot, split, crack. ERROR.
The scratched skin. ERROR.
I drown here. I surrender. I receive it.
I am.
The enjoyment of letting go, of listening and declaiming the breaking, error, which makes you free of opening, of appearing, of having to look at you, as you really are. From this illusory breaking begins the composition of a work, of a communication that transcends the inactivity.
From this illusory error, the life begins.

platform A35 develops in the new space of Fabbrica Europa, PARC ex Scuderie Granducali in Florence, an unconventional place.
The project is based on the idea of presenting young choreographers, Italian and not only, whose research shows new creative processes, but also the changing society that is necessarily reflected in them.
