This long search began in the summer after the pandemic and originates from the need to regain possession of space and relationships.
This is why we started a journey that is taking us to different cities, countries and natural environments.
Another goal is rethinking the form of the performance and transforming it into a physical walk, that allows us to regain possession of our movement practices, free from any technical frill: bodies, space and time are our only tools.
In Faenza, the city will be our playground, our theatre.
In addition to public space, we also want to rediscover relationships by meeting heterogeneous groups of citizens who will share with us a simple and effective improvisation system, which allows us to improvise together after just a few hours.
It is how we get in touch with potential other dancers, who wish to learn the improvisation system and practice the tools for movement creation.
These tools are accessible at all levels and allow the participants to push, or not, the virtuosity of the movement according to their possibilities, and to enhance the skills and different abilities of each one.
This process allows us to easily create a relationship with professionals, but also to include children and amateurs, and to involve artists from other disciplines, such as I Musicanti di San Crispino in Faenza.
The involvement of people with different abilities is also possible.
We will explore the relationships between the dancers, focusing on space, time, and levels.
The improvisational system creates a strong unity even in very large spaces.
The simplicity of the relationship, easily understood by observers, allows to trace invisible connections even between very distant people and to focus on the different nuances and quality of these connections.
The mechanisms of contamination will be the result of mimesis, which will be immediately modified by looking for contrasts in rhythm, time, and timbre.
After training with common tools for movement creation, the group will be able to choose how to make the leader’s proposal resonate in a unanimous but also distinguished way. The individual proposal will be transformed into a choir proposal and enriched with nuances and details.
Like a flock of birds.
