22:00, AKROPODITI DANCE CENTRE
Luna Cenere – Italy
‘Kokoro’ is a single Japanese word translated as our ‘inner being’ but literally embraces two words/concepts, ‘mind’ and ‘heart’. Trying to deconstruct dualistic categories such as “good – bad», through the work I wonder about the matter of being and perception of reality. The writing of the movement is done instantly as a result of the research for a specific movement vocabulary. The physicality of the action is able to project an inner state through which the observer can distill the characteristics of a “character” or many “characters” never explicitly defined. It’s a dialogue with the body that, exposed in its nudity, can be transfigured through the performative space and become poetic vehicle, bringing out pictures belonging and not to the real world. The study of movement is joined with the perspective research pointing out that one scenic viewpoint can suggest many different readings. Important is the relationship with the space in which the action takes place where the point of observation and the dialogue between the performer and the surrounding environment creates new and constantly changing images.
Duration: 30 minutes
