il cuore della terra
(theatre piece)

Premiere 2023 CROSS Festival

The theater piece summarizes the previous phases of the EarthHeart project by EgriBiancoDanza company in a new theatrical dimension. New technologies, videos , setting and dance will present to the audience, the power of the planet and the wonder of its ecosystems. Dancers wil be dancing in a perpetual flow of images. and sound: fascinating, magical, to be contemplated and indulged in .. Starting from the experiential path in situ,  EarthHeart by EgriBiancoDanza Company, under the guidance of the choreographer Raphael Bianco, reshapes the experiences lived in loneliness of 5 dancers in different months fro february to may 2022, within different ecosystems. The essence of the work is bringing towards the dramaturgical and theatrical dimension of the gesture. EarthHeart is a stage piece that is rooted in the Earth and metabolizes the experience of contact to talk about life, nature and humanity as a single organism. The environment permeates the body with suggestions, questions and dialogues with his physical actions / reactions: we are part of the beating heart of a microcosm that dominates us, immersed in an infinite macrocosm from which a ritual dance springs out. Elements of the research carried out in situ collected by METS –Cuneo Music Conservatoire relating to sound, and by Gaia Russo Frattasi for images, are reworked by the interdisciplinary artistic collective Ko-koschka Revival coordinated by theater director and film maker Ana Shametaj and sound designer professor Andrea Giomi.
