FRANCESCA PENNINI [IT]
Maria Taglioni on the ground
In a white limbo, like a fashion show, a collection of insects, a classic ballet. Romanticism beyond the contemporary and its conceptualisms, cooled and made incandescent by an air of piercing and distant quotation, dedication and oxymoron, a journey into the body that exhibits itself up to the extreme aseptic and ascetic nudity. Sylphidarium recalls that ballet that was at the origin of romantic dance. An autopsy of classical ballet, transformed and hybridized with gymnastics, acrobatics, bodybuilding and with an aerobic finale modeled on the videos of Jane Fonda, with silvery costumes, lunar, always in the white of a scene that wants to repeat the dazzling effect of the circling of tutu. A reflection on the forms of tradition to draw a mutant body, overcoming the same stereotypes of the “contemporary” genre, to venture into unexplored territories, which go beyond the etiquette of predefined forms and even that of contamination, in search of its own generative urgency of expression.
