Chiara Frigo: SUITE HOPE

With her project Suite Hope, Chiara Frigo will be hosted in the residences of Villa Nappi.
Suite-Hope, a show for two interprets and a paper people, starts from some questions linked with hope and its role in the present. This research begins with an exodus, looking for other places where it’s possible to live. The bigger effort is to see in the movements of the world the chance of recreate, change, improve yourself  otherwise you fall down.
“Suite-Hope is made within landscapes, changes from one space to another and different human conditions. The paper people is the guide of this experience; they’re forced by the contemporary society to changes and transformations. The performers will mix fluidly a ground writing with the dancing of Frigo and Ciappina, adding beautiful musics.” Elena Conti about Tamburo di Kattrin
