Fuorimargine hosts the artistic residency for the creation of the new project ERWARTUNG: a Fuorimargine production with concept and choreography by Cristina Kristal Rizzo and dance by Giulia Cannas.

Open rehearsal Saturday 12 August, 7 p.m. at Sa Manifattura.

Taking permission to experiment again and again is like ground zero. There is a dance in the past and a dance of the past, a relationship between dance and life, there is a beyond performance. The relationship is transmission, a working without knowing, permission to change the frame, an ethical imperative that is commitment, it is dedication, it is devotion. What is the future of dance? To be fugitive from the logistics of choreography!

In order for the new active to exist, one must let go of something, be in a pre-figurative practice, a practice that does not know its image, a practice that uses choreography to free dance from our gaze and simply generate an image or a space in which other forms, other voices can be pronounced without being recognised. It is like falling in love, literally melting in love, losing all sense of time and going away! CKR.

As with some previous productions ERWARTUNG is based on a choreographic structure that grafts itself onto the flow of time with poetic geometries, evolving on the borders of the visible and invisible, abstraction and figuration.

This short solo performed by Giulia Cannas, thus establishes a dance full of sensitivity as an explicit reflection of Rizzo’s choreographic research. Which means, for the artist, discarding, decolonising every deposit, every resistance starting from tradition, precisely to return the language of dance to what effectively and affectively realises its relationship with the spectator: the sharing of a time freed from form.
