Villa Nappi garden – Polverigi


Outdoor dance floor by Salvo Lombardo reinterprets the contemporary clubbing esthetics, replacing his imaginaries both in the theatrical and unconventional spaces. With this performance the Italian choreographer identifies in the in the club culture a hybrid dimension in which dance and music become a territory of “possibility” for the bodies and the occasion for the affirmation of a “feel” of the body that transcends social and gender conventions. The performers Daria Greco and Salvo Lombardo put on the stage a choreographic action based on a series of imitable short sequences supported by a constant pulsation in relationship with the beat the of techno music.

At the end of the piece the audience will be invited to join the flow of the two performers to experience, through dance, new relational dynamics, echoes and reverberations of the movement. Outdoor dance floor wants to embody an act of pure sharing, sociality and aggregation of bodies.
