Anatomie spirituali

Premiere,19th October 2019 - Casa del Teatro Ragazzi e Giovani Torino

A choreographic and choreologic work, pushing the body between stillness and motion: the meaning comes out of it, without a deliberate narration. Our body, made of flesh and blood, is directed by a mind and gets life from a heart. But when we reflect upon more deeply we may wonder: what is our relation with different areas of our body? Which ones would we conceal? Which ones do we like? Which ones face the world and which ones should be hidden? Where do we feel strength and energy and where fragility?

An investigation on the dancer’s body, a real process of anatomical dissection. A choreographic itinerary with esoteric perspectives, a mysterious ritual producing, here and there, images which might upset being surreal, joyful, comic, poetic.

The creative process is going through different dimension, lead by natural sounds (Leonardo’s favorite) as well as echoes of renaissance music and some of his writings, it gets the main inspiration from Leonardo’ s anatomy drawings that never are just an exercise of style, but deep investigation on life and its progressive fading.
