PARC Performing Arts Research Centre Firenze | IT


The collective Melting Point, formed by the dancers Giovanfrancesco Giannini, Fabio Novembrini and Valentina Zappa, in residency at PARC from October 16 to 20 to develop the Memories project which, as part of the Crossing the sea project, will be in residency in China in November, hosted by the Er Gao Dance Production Group in Guangzhou.

Memories is a choreographic project focussed on the interchange of bodily practices aimed at the research into memory.
The will is to highlight how the body can be a central, clarifying and crucial element in a so complex contemporary world, where political forces play on amplifying the fear of diversity by fuelling racism and xenophobia. In a historical period like this, in which we are witnessing the total debacle of capitalist culture based on product and money, the aim of the project is to demonstrate how a new positive globalization is possible, starting from the exchange between different cultures and the centrality of a political body that through dance can be witness to new glimmers of humanity.
