Teatro della Luna – Polverigi
ENRICO TICCONI E GINEVRA PANZETTI – HARLEKING
HARLEKING is a demon with multiple identities.
His body expression resembles that of Harlequin of the Commedia dell’Arte, a sly servant moved by an insatiable hunger. HARLEKING’s mode of communication has a specific hypnotic quality in which its contents, often extreme and contradictory, merge to create a fluid, metamorphic system wherein anything can happen, yet all is blurred. It is reminiscent of the Grotesques, ancient wall decorations, in which monstrous figures emerge and blend in with elegant ornamental volutes.
Figures, which, although can evoke amusement, do not elicit any joy.

Ginevra Panzetti and Enrico Ticconi, based in Berlin and Torino, have been working as a duo since 2008. Their artistic research interlaces dance, performance and visual art. Deepening themes related to the historical union between communication, violence and power, they draw on ancient imaginaries, creating hybrid figures or images between history and contemporaneity.
Both graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and attended Stoà, School for rhythmic movement and philosophy in Cesena, led by Claudia Castellucci.
In 2010 they moved to Germany and delved into individual, but mutually complementary paths: Ginevra studied Media Art at Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst (HGB) in Leipzig and Enrico Dance, Context, Choreography at Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz (HZT) in Berlin.
With the work HARLEKING they have been selected by the european platform AEROWAVES Twenty 19, and the New Italian Dance (NID) Platform.
Aside from their projects, Enrico works as a dancer for choreographers such as Kat Válastur, Dewey Dell, Lea Moro and Adam Linder while Ginevra designs contemporary jewels under her own label Tegumenti.
