Lost in is the development of an idea on which Saul Daniele Ardillo has been working for more than a year. So we can see a creation that shows perhaps the most extraordinary function of art: to help us to inhabit, even literally, our living spaces, in a detached and profound vision, that allows the beauty that seems lost to emerge.

A stage can be presented as a sort of ideal map, in which the dancer looks for his or her own routes, stops puzzled – as if in an unknown city – or throws himself or herself safely along lines that seem to belong to him or her since the very beginning.

Lost in is the development of an idea on which Saul Daniele Ardillo has been working for more than a year. So we can see a creation that shows perhaps the most extraordinary function of art: to help us to inhabit, even literally, our living spaces, in a detached and profound vision, that allows the beauty that seems lost to emerge. Like piano music, it makes its way between urban sounds and electronic interferences.

Saul Daniele Ardillo started from maps of large cities, created by the painter Jorge R. Pombo, positioned on the ground, on which five dancers of Aterballetto performed the first version of the show: a site-specific performance of great emotional strength staged at Palazzo da Mosto in Reggio Emilia in the fall of 2018, with the title MAPS 1:610 (allusion to the scale used).
In that version, as in the current one for theatre, what emerges is the feeling of getting lost, perhaps in the places or relationships we know best, or the need of a small comfort zone, escaping from the real or supposed harshness of a trip.
