Simona Bertozzi / Nexus – Quel che resta – ph. Luca Del Pia


A choreographic dialogue that invites us to explore the relationships between two bodies that work like a living organism in continuous expansion. In its growth, the organism multiplies its directions and continually makes possible new balances and new links, without avoiding the occurrence of mutations.

Quel che resta (What remains) is a journey towards the wonder of movement, made up of moments in which dance freezes in a gesture and surprising explosions, sudden bursts, unbalancing and repositioning of the body in space. A journey towards a territory made of landings and new departures.

Since the beginning of my journey with Marta, I have tried to attribute to the space environmental characteristics that could generate visions, change the density of the air and generate the unexpected ability to cross. Unusual ways of being.

All this so that we could meet in a boundless dance, able to reverberate beyond the awareness of our actions and surprise us, almost despite ourselves, in attitudes of affection and irresistible resonance.

Quel che resta (What remains) was, at first, one of the territories of the map and of the practices, between glaciation, skins, escapes, and then became the overlying image, the bubble, the necessary degree of presence, the shared gaze, the inevitable questioning on which to pause, to find the subtle breath and transit from one dance to another.

Simona Bertozzi / Nexus – Quel che resta – ph. Luca Del Pia

From a section of space, Quel che resta has become the whole organism, the living, a multiplication of vectors, perspectives, anatomical flexions, rhythm and time.
It has made us connective tissues, to imagine and welcome other inhabitants, to make temperatures and origins reverberate, to generate multiform agreements of entry into movement, looking for unexpected capacities to make the world. To generate amazement.

Quel che resta is the impetuosity and the lingering of bodies, the weightless touch: it extends a vocabulary of waits and starts, of repeated geometries, of figurines, ice, resistance, epidermis and pupils and of refrains. To be hooked.

Simona Bertozzi, dancer and choreographer, a graduate from DAMS in Bologna, has been committed since 2005 to an authorial path of choreographic research and in 2008 founded the Simona Bertozzi | Nexus Company.

Over the years, her projects have been supported and hosted by important Italian and European circuits, through co-productions and choreographic residencies.

Her most recent works include: And it burns, burns, burns finalist at the 2017 UBU Awards as Best Dance Performance, Joie de Vivre co-produced by ERT Emilia Romagna Teatro Fondazione, Fondazione Teatro Comunale di Modena and Tra le linee project co-produced by Torino Danza, MilanOltre, Nexus and Festival Est Ovest.

Since 2014 the creation path has also addressed young performers, involving children and teenagers.

In 2019 he won the Hystrio Corpo a Corpo Award and the ANCT (Associazione Nazionale Critici di Teatro) Award.
