Residency in preparation of the new choreographic creation by Panzetti/Ticconi (; the duo – based in Italy and in Germany – has recruited 4 professional contemporary dancers and performers (m/f/d) for INSEL, which will premiere at Tanz Im August (Berlin) and then at Torinodanza Festival (click here).

The physical impact of being castaway on a desert island and the fall into the depths of one’s own interiority are, in INSEL, equivalent collisions. INSEL, the German word for island, is a choreographic and sound creation for 4 performers which chooses a geographical condition as a symbolic reference to turn the gaze towards the individual and into the inevitable encounter with one’s own shadow. Two figures, guarded by their shadows, find in the monologue their only means for an expressive channel. Pleased by their own suffering tones, they do not contemplate the presence of the other. They plunge into the darkness of their own being, staging the drama of their narcissism. The shadows extend like majestic darkness and voice, an ancient, profound voice which with telluric vibrations undermines any kind of egoic protagonism and leaves space, amidst the shaken and shattered ground, for the possible emergence of a community. The lament, from being a solitary and narcissistic expression of an individual, is structured into cadenced, collective gestures. Mourners lead the ritual, while the voice of the island accompanies and soothes. The voice of Gavino Murgia is inspired by the traditional Cantu a Tenore technique originating on the island of Sardinia.

The event is finished.
