MARCO D’AGOSTIN - AVALANCHE
Marco D’Agostin’s poetics is fluid, dynamic, always adapting. His works are inspired by atlas, M.P. Shiel, extinct creatures and the iconography of You Tube videos. His favorite art piece is The Disintegration Loops by William Basinski.
His choreography follows the advices of Amelia Rosselli, poetess: “Speaking about meter, it runs free following my desire and thoughts. Hostile to preordained schemes, overflowing, it adapts to a musical, instinctive, completely mental sense of time.”
In Avalanche the two protagonist human beings are being observed by the eye of a Cyclops, as ancient dusts preserved in a block of ice. They’re Atlases, walking at the dawn of a new planet under the weight of a millennial melancholy. The traces of everything that couldn’t remain act like invisible forces over what has survived and it’s now recalled as a rule, a collection, a list of possibilities. The dance lives in a constant tension towards the infinite of enumeration, desperately looking for an outcome.
Half-closed eyes, as to protect the gaze from the blinding light of a never-seen colour, they grab the blaze of one last possibility: a land of sand and seeds on which someone else will learn again how to move, after the last archive will be destroyed.
