Salvo Lombardo’s SPORT performance identifies a specific existential dimension in the physical condition of the “fall” and in the same way a pretext to reposition the ideals of competition and performance normally based on principles of exclusion and conformity to precise anatomical, social, behavioral and cultural rules. Specifically, SPORT attempts to widen the gaze on the very concept of “performativity” of the body, both in artistic and sporting performance. In this sense, sport is investigated as one of the different articulations of the forms of dominant power, in the intersections between individual expression and public narration, at the crossroads with the construction of national, cultural and gender identities. SPORT by Salvo Lombardo is an opportunity to re-discuss the contemporary canons and imaginaries applied to the body in the “Occident” trying to reveal both the desperate attempt to resist its fall, as well as the inevitable, necessary and at times “loving” acceptance of the decline: of a condition, of a narrative system, of a world. The performance is the third chapter of the trilogy L’Esemplare Capovolto articulated in the rewriting of three historical works of the Italian academic dance repertoire of the late 19th century: Gran Ballo Excelsior (1881), Amor (1886), Sport (1897).
