Canvas of Bodies

Choreographic research about identity through a collective self-portrait. Five faces, in continuous movement, build up a fiction to narrate the evolution of a body. The work shows a panoramic vision of individual thought that is revealed in hand to hand encounters.

Canvas of Bodies, offers a landscape based on the differences among the five dancers. Differences in thinking, in attitude, in behavior and skills.

This work is a choreographic composition that stresses difference, and questions the concept of beauty, perfection and virtuosity, debatable values in art and in contemporary dance. Five dancers build up this choreographic canvas in a sort of self-portrait both individual and collective.
