The underlying question of this project concerns the relationship between man and animal. Following a personal experience based on a trip to Namibia, the author, in direct contact with nature, has lived that sense of beauty and poetic evocation that springs from the simple observation of the animal that moves freely in its habitat.
Hence the reflection, by contrast, on the existence of real lagers in which the animals are forced to live, for reasons related to the needs and conditions of the current market, aimed at intensive productivity.
The observation of the market and of intensive production is not the ultimate goal but the reflection from which to look at the order of things, to relate beauty and ugliness, shadow and light, to become aware of and to renew a possible balance between these opposites that are inherent in human nature. The project involves of 5 dancers (including the choreographer), dramatist, sound designer, light designer. The creative process developed through residences in different places and includes sharing and mentoring by the artistic directors of the involved structures.
