Jari Boldrini will be at PARC from November 4 to 9 for a residency during which he will work on Stanza 1.5, his new choreographic project.
In Stanza 1.5 I wear glasses with graduated lenses.
I tried to understand through movement how the body is influenced by a difficulty, by a distortion of the things I observe. Finding myself within this new status, I realized that body posture was the first thing to suffer, and consequently the movement. My structure therefore reacted to the surrounding space, which was distorted in my eyes. Then I focused on the reaction between eye and movement, between exterior and interior, between unknown and known and analyzed every single part of the body bringing attention to skeleton and body matter. I looked for ways to adapt my structure to a new space, asking myself if there where any and what could be the effects on the psychological attitude, given the possible condition of loss of control and necessary reset. The viewer does not see what I see and witnesses a reconstruction process in which imagination and memory play a fundamental role and are invited to perceive the process. The intent is to explore different conditions imposed by external elements, like in this case the lenses, which lead to a modification of the posture and have an effect on the birth and on the deep sense of the movement.
