Fabbrica Europa hosts the dancer and choreographer Luna Cenere for a residency at PARC.
Inspired by the surrealist current and the images of authors such as Ren Hang, Eveline Bencicova, Astrid Verhoef and Adey, Luna Cenere continues her research on the themes of the body, posture and gesture.
In this new project, Vanishing Place, Luna’s intention is to dig deeper in the practice of hiding and reveal, experiment the use of objects and start a chromatic research.
