Fondazione Nazionale della Danza


in italiano

Upper-East-Side // coreografia Michele Di Stefano

Music: Lorenzo Bianchi Hoesch
Lighting Design: Carlo Cerri

The mathematics of the choreographic “phrase”, its placement within a system, its ability to be reproduced in time and the consequences that result from this are the starting point for this piece. From grammar to geography, information travels creating a linguistic impact on the space, in a never-ending desire to exchange, to breathe life into the dance as an environmental, explorative situation. What makes a place inhabitable? The architecture that contains it or the dynamic of that which passes through it? A body that is dancing truly does so when it allows another dance to exist alongside it. In this way, we create a landscape; in this way, we move to upper quarters.
