Production Fondazione Nazionale della Danza / Aterballetto

In the performance created for the launch of the Marina Rinaldi by Roksanda capsule, I am going to draw geometric shapes and patterns through dance and body, following and connecting my work to the designer’s creations, which in turn draw inspiration from one of the artists exponents of minimal art, Frank Stella, but also from the idea of “opposites”.

I am fascinated by the concept of elements that are born from a principle of “abstractionism” but find their own story when meeting; just as a body finds its own narrative and the right feeling when wearing a dress, so the dancing body finds its own narrative sense in the encounter with music.
I imagine therefore an exclusive performance, where the bodies of the dancers intertwine creating plastic figures, broken lines and games of fluid geometries – retracing the aesthetics of Frank Stella – but always accompanied by the harmonious and poetic sound of a young cellist, to give geometry a soul, a place, a time.

Colour, shape and fluidity: a performance built for an audience that loves to be carried away by the poetry of line and elegance.
Drawing inspiration from the patterns at the base of Marina Rinaldi by Roksanda capsule, I am going to create an abstract poem of bodies immersed in colour.
