From January 16th to 21st Villa Nappi will host the residence of FOLK-S project.
Created by Alessandro Sciarroni, as part of Archeo.S – System of Archeological Sites of the Adriatic Seas, FOLK-S project is co-funded by the Programme Cross-Border Cooperation IPA-Adriatico.
Sciarroni, in this first phase of work, will lead a workshop for the 10 dancers chosen after a casting of 3 days. During the Villa Nappi laboratory he will select the artists who will debut in june 2012 as performers in Folk-s.
FOLK-S analysis looks at the phenomena of ancient and contemporary folk dance intended as rites of a social community, facing them as indications of a primitive form of thought, which also anticipates the creation of language. During the production some professionals in folk dances will be invited.
FOLK-S is a production of Teatro Stabile delle Marche e Corpoceleste_C.C.00#, in collaboration with Centrale Fies, Centro per la Scena Contemporanea – Comune di Bassano del Grappa.
Alessandro Sciarroni is an artist active in the contemporary performing arts and artistic director of the association Corpoceleste_C.C.00 #. In 2008 he won the “Nuove Sensibilità.” His works are regularly presented in some of the most interesting scheduling of European contemporary dance and theater.
