A solo performance.

Duration: 40 minutes

Small / medium format

Project & choreography: Francesca Foscarini

Dancer: Romain Guion

Inspired by the painter Antonio Ligabue and his extraordinary visions of the natural world, Animale brings to the stage, in the words of John Berger, a frightfully indifferent nature, made of energy and combat, that exists without promising anything, where life’s first need is for shelter, its first prayer an appeal for protection, its first sign of life pain.

It is in this desolate context that we find beauty, and the discovery is sudden, unpredictable.

Vocazione all'Asimmetria

Piece selected by Aerowaves17

Duration: 35 minutes

Stage & site-specific

Cast: Andrea Costanzo Martini & Francesca Foscarini

Vocazione all'Asimmetria is a piece in the shape of a duet, which cautiously unfolds in an alternation of solos and moments together, of the time to show and the time to meet, of the discovery of what divides from each other and of the research of what unites and creates a possible Us.
