Within the project Secret Florence
Combining skilfully crafted choreography and sharp humour, TAME GAME explores the human tendency to meddle. Three male dancers set up a cheeky and exuberant world in which they test their self restraint and subvert the conventions of performance. The audience is invited to play along and be complicit in their witty game.
Igor Urzelai and Moreno Solinas are London-based dance artists whose work is characterised by their interest in the moving body and the immediacy of action as a vehicle for meaning, ideas and desires; and by a generosity of spirit. Looking both to reclaim the theatre as a genuinely meaningful place for assembly and to explore the cathartic properties of live performance, their ambition is to create a frame in which to share their views without dictating a single reading, instead creating space for reflection for the viewer.
Secret Florence‘s core mission of the project is to enhance the attractiveness of the city during the opening week of Pitti Immagine Uomo.
This is achieved through an innovational and high quality artistic proposal intended for a young, international audience interested in unveiling the connections between contemporary artistic languages and the extraordinary historical heritage of Florence.
Secret Florence is produced and promoted the Municipality of Florence with the support of Pitti Immagine and involves a number of Florentine organizations and institutions that work at the international level and represent a plurality of artistic expressions ranging from music to dance, from visual arts to the cinema : Fondazione Fabbrica Europa, Le Murate. Progetti Arte Contemporanea, Lo Schermo dell’Arte Film Festival, Museo Marino Marini, Museo Novecento, Tempo Reale – Centro di ricerca, produzione e didattica musicale, Virgilio Sieni – Centro di produzione sui linguaggi del corpo e della danza.
