Il Mucchio Selvaggio
Born from a shared reflection between the choreographer Annamaria Ajmone and the musician Alberto Ricca, TO BE BANNED FROM ROME uses the virtual space of the web as a field of investigation. The objective is not to explain or criticize but to immerse the viewer in a bubble of perceptions: on one hand, the constant flow of music submerges the viewer into a state of contemplative hypnosis while on the other the choreography constantly reshapes the body of the performer across the scenic elements of Jules Goldsmith and the lights designed by Giulia Pastore. Inside this space the physical geographies are modified and the bodies become a metaphor of the changes in our personality and in the network of human relations that define us.
Annamaria Ajmone graduated in modern Literature from Università Statale in Milan and later received her diploma in dance from Civica Scuola of the Paolo Grassi theatre. She has worked with Guilherme Botelho, Ariella Vidach, Daniele Ninarello, and Santasangre. She has been collaborating with Cristina Kristal Rizzo, Muta Imago, Strasse as well as with the videomaker Maria Giovanna Cicciari. In 2015 she was invited to participate in Jérôme Bel’s Compagnie, Compagnie. In 2013 she created [In]Quiete which was a finalist for Premio Equilibrio. In 2014 Tiny was awarded the DNAppunti Coreografici prize and was later presented at the Romaeuropa Festival and the Venice Biennial. She created Būan for the College Biennial 2015. From this experience was born the idea to realize a more vast project – “Pratiche di abitazione temporanea” -, a series of actions constructed and performed in non-theatrical spaces. The project made stops in Milan, (Fondazione Prada) Florence (Palazzo Pitti and Cango), Paris (Italian Cultural Institute of Paris), Los Angeles, (Night Gallery), Reggio Emilia (Musei Civici), Milan (Bonotto Edition). In 2017 she created Mash in collaboration with choreographer Marcela Santander Corvalàn.
Alberto Ricca received in 2014 his diploma in Elelctronic music from the Como Conservatory after graduating in Media Languages and after concluding a Master in Composition from the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia. In December 2015 he published as Bienoise the album Meanwhile, Tomorrow for White Forest Records. The album is considered by many specialized magazines to be one of the best albums of the year. He has also been publishing for Concrete Records (Small Hopes of Common People, a soundtrack album for films that were never finished, 2015), Bitcrusher (Sono una Teiera Tonda \Il mio beccuccio è a forma d’onda, 2010, under the alias Maestro delle Metope). Since 2015 he has been among the protagonists of The Italian New Wave, a project of Club To Club Festival which promotes new Italian creativity at an international level. In 2014 he was selected by Red Bull to represent Italy at the Tokyo Academy. He is one of the founders of Floating Forest Records, a label and music collective. He has been collaborating with , among others, the European Institute of Design in Milan where he teaches electronic music production and performance techniques. He is not a dj.
