HARLEKING is a demon with multiple identities.
His body expression resembles that of Harlequin of the Commedia dell’Arte, a sly servant moved by an insatiable hunger. HARLEKING’s mode of communication has a specific hypnotic quality in which its contents, often extreme and contradictory, merge to create a fluid, metamorphic system wherein anything can happen, yet all is blurred. It is reminiscent of the Grotesques, ancient wall decorations, in which monstrous figures emerge and blend in with elegant ornamental volutes.
Figures, which, although can evoke amusement, do not elicit any joy.
The work premiered in July 2018 in the frame of Open Spaces Sommer Tanz at Tanzfabrik Berlin and it has been presented among several European dance festivals and theatres. In 2019 it has been selected by the Aerowaves Twenty19 for the Spring Forward 2019 and the New Italian Dance (NID) Platform.
