ACQUITRINI is a musical, choreographic and visual reflection on places and ecosystems on the borderline between the terrestrial and aquatic environment. Ecosystems that are isolated and only apparently static but rich in life, such as marshes, swampy areas.
The meeting place between water and land is the liminal surface where reflection takes place, a space pierced by language that brings together simultaneous worlds in a completely natural way. Water is a fertile multiplier of images, it participates in the generative process of organic forms and in the metamorphosis of abstract and geometric elements into living forms, refracted in a liquid, extended body that holds together the same as that which keeps itself different.
Water is simultaneously appearance and living matter, there is a living being that inhabits appearance and an appearance that allows the living to exist and multiply. Water crosses images, interrogates vision and regenerates it by opening up new planes of the possible: you can see the motionless seabed or the current, the shore or infinity at will. You can see one object in another, you can witness living geometries and the inversion of objects and beings.
Acquitrini is a search within language, of which liquidity is a constitutive and compositional principle. It is a generative element of form that allows a fluid language to cross the spatio-temporal structure of the composition, becoming a place where a simultaneity of presences can coexist.
