Reconstruction Italian Contemporary Choreography Anni 80/90
Tango Glaciale, a historical pièce created by 22-year old Mario Martone with the Falso Movimento group, is now “reloaded” in a sort of time machine by Anna Redi, Raffaele Di Florio and three actors who were not yet born in 1982.
Yet, this is far from being a nostalgic operation.
The pièce is a necessary piece in the RIC.CI project, since it shows how, at a time when our choreographic tradition was undergoing intense renovation, contemporary theatre, under the influence of Artaud, was also moving away from the dominant role of language towards a more physical approach.
Sixty minutes filled with a cascade of images, music (pop, jazz and more!), dance and actions/quotations in a universe of rhythmic freshness: and, surprisingly, this “1980s post-modernity” launches us into the future.
