MONZA_ROVEDO_ABDO_ABDELRAHMAN - GREEN LEAVES ARE GONE
In 2015, Tommaso Monza, Giovanna Rovedo, Ibrahim Abdo and Shady Abdelrahman met during a five days meeting between Italian and Egyptian dance artists at the CCDC Center in Cairo. They began their research on movement by sharing their own creative questions within the format of a daily, informal working plan made by the sharing of personal practices that ended with a sharing presentation. In the end, they decided to keep the connection and an open dialogue with the goal to be a platform of intercultural exchange focusing on performing arts and live performance.
The strong, non leading democratic working group have continued its research thanks to creative residencies in Polverigi, Pordenone, Faenza and Cairo.
Green leaves are gone starts with a question: what it means to disappear?
The concept of disappearing at the moment exist in every human field. In every society everything is going to disappear: opportunities, wishes, wellness. Just by starting an approximate reflection on the idea of disappearing, we can test how this concept exist around us and how we start to lose our community values. Even if in every society are different those are always more disappearing to became something set from outside.Also the spaces that we have around – as individual and community – are changed: the meeting points for the people are shifting from a real space to a digital space.
The time is suspended.
The micro consequences regards the single individuality and from those the group starts to work in artistic field sharing different experiences of disappearing: someone felt the weight of this, someone else just feel the wish of disappearing.
