FRANCESCO MARILUNGO - LOVE SOUVENIR
Driven by the precision of RTC (Real Time Composition), Francesco Marilungo focus its research on creating atmospheres. He uses the body to investigate the archetypes of our culture. He has worked with Lisa Kraus ed Elena Demyanenko (Trisha Brown Dance Company), Cristina Morganti, Julie Anne Stanzak, Juliana Neves and Quan Bui Ngoc (Les Ballets C de la B), Cristina Rizzo, Masaki Iwana, Gabriela Carrizo (Peeping Tom), Yasmine Hugonnet and collaborates with the Italian Enzo Cosimi and Mara Cassiani.
Love Souvenir is a performance for one dancer and seven embalmed ravens. The piece is inspired by the myth of Maria Maddalena, the saint with many faced, to investigate the transition of genre.
The “body” of Maddalena, transformed and changed through the times, becomes relic, souvenir, in opposition to taxidermy. Apparently distant, they both have a tendency to the infinity, fighting against the death. The relic body and the embalmed body connect us to the supernatural.
