Cinema Italia, Polverigi


Born from a shared reflection between the choreographer Annamaria Ajmone and the musician Alberto Ricca, To Be Banned From Rome uses the virtual space of the web as a field of investigation. The objective is not to explain or criticize but to immerse the viewer in a bubble of perceptions: on one hand, the constant flow of music submerges the viewer into a state of contemplative hypnosis while on the other the choreography constantly reshapes the body of the performer across the scenic elements of Jules Goldsmith and the lights designed by Giulia Pastore. Inside this space the physical geographies are modified and the bodies become a metaphor of the changes in our personality and in the network of human relations that define us.

Annamaria Ajmone graduated in modern Literature from Università Statale in Milan and later received her diploma in dance from Civica Scuola Paolo Grassi. She has worked with Guilherme Botelho, Ariella Vidach, Daniele Ninarello, and Santasangre and has been collaborating with Cristina Kristal Rizzo, Muta Imago, Strasse as well as with the videomaker Maria Giovanna Cicciari. Finalist for Premio Equilibrio, she was awarded the DNAppunti Coreografici prize in 2014 and later presented at the Romaeuropa Festival and the Venice Biennial. Since then, she has touring all around the world.

Alberto Ricca received in 2014 his diploma in Elelctronic music from the Como Conservatory after graduating in Media Languages and after concluding a Master in Composition from the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia. In December 2015 he published as Bienoise the album Meanwhile, Tomorrow for White Forest Records. The album is considered by many specialized magazines to be one of the best albums of the year. Since 2015 he has been among the protagonists of The Italian New Wave, a project of Club To Club Festival which promotes new Italian creativity at an international level. He is also one of the founders of Floating Forest Records, a label and music collective.
