Twister is born from a productive project of Fabbrica Europa Festival and the company Aura Dance Theatre that brought together the work group of Salvo Lombardo (Rome) and the Lithuanian company.
This work is built around the Twister game that in a completely cross-generational and cross-cultural way has developed an excuse for many generations to revisit the concept of physicality and proxemics through a game.
The performance questions the concept of physicality and of a body as a relation territory and uses the choreographic language as a glue of social experience that leads to the formation of a temporary community where bodies are an extension of human relationships, social dynamics, cultural products and life experience of each performer.
Salvo Lombardo, starting with a series of Twister games between two groups, intends to put up a choreography, based on connections and micro-narrations deductible from that experience, favouring a share of performer’s personal memories, both motor and biographical, which re-enactment lies in improvisation and repetition.
