within Metastasio Jazz
Kudoku comes from a long period of residency and following the debut within the dance and jazz project DAN+Z, produced by Fabbrica Europa 2016. With this new production Daniele Ninarello has been selected, along with Francesca Foscarini, as the only Italian artist among 19 European choreographers, for Aerowaves Twenty17.
Choreographer Daniele Ninarello and composer Dan Kinzelman meet on a common ground for exploration: space as a place in which to exercise and transfigure the physical and sonic body, its transience, its impermanence, the struggle to resist.
Dan Kinzelman improvises live with electronics, mixing synthesis, the inner noise of machines and feedback, along with sounds generated by the instruments that he has used most often over the years: sax, clarinet, flutes, stratifying the various elements using a loop station.
In composing the choreographic part, Daniele Ninarello not only explores his familiar field of instant composition, but works within a territory created by the continuous dialogue with the soundscape and the information he receives from it, to contact the invisible threads that bind body and space. The experimentation with sound and with the body thus tends to translate the perceptive elements that make the evolution of the human figure visible. Something inside the body vibrates ceaselessly like a threat: it is chaos, the inner noise of scars and thoughts. And this is true for everyone. Only dance can gradually bring these traces into the here and now. And wipe the gaze clean, find peace. Like a true physical mantra to explore in its continuity: the mute perimeter of properly unshackled thought.
