Face In – Let’s Talk About Dis

The Double Bill presented by Candoco at Sadler’s Wells is a sharp exploration and comment on the nature of identity. Yasmeen Godder, ”Leading choreographer of the Israeli new wave” (The Observer newspaper) and Hetain Patel, one of the UK’s most exciting visual artist and recent choreographer, lead the Company. The result of their efforts is a pair of extremely clever works, which acutely challenge and broaden the conception of art and ability. Always shifting into the provocative, the two pieces conserve the distinctive and delicate touch that the Company have established over the last 30 years.

Salomè

Allo Spazio Avirex Tertulliano il regista Luca Ligato, complice la tagliente scenografia di Giovanna Angeli e i costumi di Carla Goddi ispirati al bondage giapponese, ci trascina nelle acque oscure dei rapporti di potere alla corte di Erode. Sotto il segno della dissoluzione dell’etica che ben rappresenta la sensibilità decadentista di inizio Novecento, restiamo senza giudizio di fronte alla sua Salomè bambina, che riscopriamo umana.

Bird’s Eye View

Bird’s Eye View, performed last Friday at the Italian Cultural Institute in London by dancer and choreographer Simona Bertozzi is the closest thing to a flying lesson you will ever experience. With powerful, broken gestures and impressive mimetic qualities, the dancer takes ownership of a bird’s anatomy and flight mechanics, and drags the viewer into its aerial world. Inspired by Roger Callois’ four categories of games, the solo is a mesmerising physical trip between human and animal states. Leggi tutto “Bird’s Eye View”
