Triennale Teatro dell'Arte
Panorama starts from the idea of developing a reflection on the human need to be on the move
and on the right to migration.

“One of the most radical theatrical groups in Europe today.” L’Espresso

Panorama, Motus’ latest project, represents a new stage of the process which began with MDLSX, an extremely successful piece. This is a research project involving people who have experienced migration due to their artistic choices: the actors of the Great Jones Repertory Company, the multiethnic performance group resident at La MaMa, the iconic theatre of New York’s East Village founded by Ellen Stewart. Drawing on biographical events, Motus, in collaboration with the dramaturg Erik Ehn, imagines new existential landscapes, in which nomadism becomes an intrinsic aspect of life (and of the life of a performer), challenging any perspective that wishes to define irrevocably people, nationalities, ethnicities, sexual orientations through fixed hierarchical categories.

Motus was founded in Rimini in 1991 by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò. Besides their artistic creation – theatre plays, performances and installations – their intense cultural activities include conducting seminars, meetings and debates. Their works have been presented in the most famous international festivals among which are Under the Radar in New York, Festival TransAmériques in Montréal, at Santiago a Mil in Chile, at Fiba Festival in Buenos Aires, at Adelaide Festival, and at Taipei Arts Festival. The company has interpreted in truly original ways authors such as Beckett, DeLillo, Genet, Fassbinder, Rilke, Pasolini. They have received various prizes including three Ubu Awards. Among their most relevant productions are the project Syrma Antigónes dedicated to the figure of Antigone as an archetype of fight and resistance. The project was developed in two contests Let The sunshine In, Too Late and Iovadovia and in the performance Alexis, una tragedia greca which was awarded in 2012 the Critics’ Choice Award for “Best Foreign Show” from the Québec Association of Theatre Critics. Other works include: The Plot is the Revolution (2011), an emotional on-stage meeting between the actress Silvia Calderoni and Judith Malina of Living Theatre, Nella Tempesta (2013), Caliban Cannibal (2013), MDLSX (2015), a performance on gender and border identities. Since Spring 2014 Daniela Nicolò and Enrico Casagrande have been holding a teaching atelier of poétique de la scène at La Manufacture – Haute école de théâtre de Suisse romande in Lausanne.
