People

People is a deep and secret analysis – in a few moments perhaps seraphic – of the contours of human beings, members of a race that in contemporary society is increasingly exposed to a fictitious contact, made up of sharing photographic, of judgments, of liking, of following and status, invented and proportionally more and more limited – often exiled – to a social solitude.

Dacru is a group that ‘transforms’ the language of hip hop dance by combining it through contemporary dance and performing art. The group, often a guest at international festivals and reviews, has for some years been one of the realities associated with Naturalis Labor.

Concept and choreography: Marisa Ragazzo and Omid Ighani

Room. Home. Body. Mind.
The perimeter of everything, solitary or overlapping. Blended and interlocking perimeters or S E P A R A T E D, far from contact and shared thoughts in shared spaces.

space
/speɪs/
[from Latin spatium, possibly der. from patēre “to be open”].
Circumscribed perimeters, physical and mental where one does not suffer unknown emotions because everything that arrives has already been known in an intimate personal experience.

PEOPLE is a deep and secret analysis – in a few moments perhaps seraphic – of the contours of human beings, members of a race that in contemporary society is increasingly exposed to a fictitious contact, made up of sharing photographic, of judgments, of liking, of following and status, invented and proportionally more and more limited – often exiled – to a social solitude.

The company reflects on the extraordinary power of ‘social distances’, a theme that is dear to them and has already been dealt with in [zerocentimetri], the last production staged in 2019, which, in a predictive manner, introduced what later became an undeniable fact.
And so, in a limited and delimited space, each breath becomes a quest, a small land to conquer where all the dancers occupy their comfort zone, blind to everything that lives outside.
A simple and bare scene, few objects related to everyday life, small rooms drawn in an open space.
An extraordinary dense crowd of living beings, separated but too close not to secretly wish the opposite.

Have you ever felt lonely?

solitude
/ˈsɒlɪtjuːd/
Origin from Latin solitudo -ĭnis, der. from solus ‘alone’

 

Marisa Ragazzo and Omid Ighani began their artistic collaboration in 1996, systematically mixing their personal artistic curiosities, backgrounds and talents, careful to keep their differences intact and often succeeding in enhancing them.

Their different artistic backgrounds, academic for Marisa (Prebil, Trayanova, Lupov, Peter Goss, Sebron) and street for Omid (freestyler, like many talents born and bred in the hip hop culture of the 1980s), produce a highly innovative and certainly singular artistic code.

Both in love with extreme experimentation and the contamination of styles and languages, they create an unusual choreographic dimension, while remaining absolutely attainable. They love speed, technical virtuosity, and the fusion of the theatrical space with the artistic code of the street, from which they draw their drives towards art in its various aspects, which often leads them to collaborate with underground musicians and visual artists.

Their primary goal remains to break out of conventional spaces through originality, invention, innovation and research.

In 1996, Marisa Ragazzo and Omid Ighani opened two professional hip hop dance schools, still active today, in Lazio and Sardinia, to which they added, over the years, another 8 locations shared in organisation with Cruisin Arts (MC Hip Hop School: Milan, Verona, Jesi, Florence, Rome, Bari, Catania, Cagliari), and a specialisation school for Video Dance and House (Cruisin’ Urban Dance Hdemy: Modena and Rome).

In addition to professional schools, they carry out an intense teaching activity, in Italy and abroad.

Dacru is a group that ‘transforms’ the language of hip hop dance by combining it through contemporary dance and performing art. The group, often a guest at international festivals and reviews, has for some years been one of the realities associated with Naturalis Labor.
