Saturday, October 27, 19h00
WASP – Str. Ion Minulescu 67-93
The artists in residence Marianna Andrigo and Aldo Aliprandi are hosted by 4Culture and WASP in the frame of a workshops, labs and presentations exchange project between Venice and Bucharest – an initiative of 4Culture Association (RO) and MarcoPoloSystem/ C32 performingartworkspace (IT).
The project aims to promote Romanian and Italian choreographers and dancers in a mobility/residency programme between Romania and Italy, as well as to increase the visibility of contemporary dance at European level.
Canto alla durata is a process to create a dance performance that combines movement, sound and light. The title is inspired by Gedicht an die Dauer, written by Peter Handke, and the subject of our research is the feeling of time. Thinking about it, we have been through Proust, Derrida, Bergson, Cage… and we started to mix our practices, movement and sound, focusing on idea of duration.
Movement, light, sound, to see “duration”. What is the effect that time has on our feelings? Acceleration, slowdown, unpredictability. Movement seeks, into the actions, shapes for echo, consonance/dissonance. Sheet music is not predetermined, therefore not exactly repeatable. It’s clear only the software structure of elaboration in real time, the input is air produced by a fan on microphone.
Marianna Andrigo, performer, and Aldo Aliprandi, visual artist, have been collaborating since 2009: they realize dance, video, sound performances focused on site-specific, interactivity, live performance that mix different languages, body and technology.
