With this work Roberto Zappalà continues along the road of poetic investigations in the search of the “secret identities”. And the identity is the hidden (but not so much) protagonist of the intense choreographic constructions of the dance. In addition this search will, once again, go through a privileged itinerary: the rediscovery and the reprojecting of the body.
Why then disturbing a unique person like Pier Paolo Pasolini for such an artistic project?
Because, once again, Pasolini is able to indicate the crucial contradictions of our future. A future where, to a greater and greater extent, the real and virtual categories, their opposition or their fusion will permeate our acting, our anthropological constitution.
This work intends to “reflect” the possible opposing and consonant ways, using precisely the central dimensions of the real according to Pasolini: the bodies and places, and their transformation into new telematic networks. It will be the Pasolinian bodies and places which will hover between the virtual metamorphases represented by the dance.
