Italian choreographer Marco D’Agostin will be at Villa Nappi, with Portuguese dancer Teresa Silva, for a residency to create his new project “Avalanche” coproduced by Marche Teatro, which will debut in a national premiere at Inteatro Festival 40.
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.
