Collettivo Munerude

El Conde de Torrefiel

LA PLAZA

Show

El Conde de Torrefiel is one of the revelations of the last few years. The Spanish collective comes back to Milan with the Italian premiere of LA PLAZA, a piece envisaged as a town square which narrates the present while tapping into the collective memory of the past.

Square Milano is a participatory installation that manipulates its surroundings. The result of a research project developed at IRCAM - Centre Pompidou in Paris, the work guides the audience through an ambiguous soundscape which plays with the simultaneous perception of real and fictitious inputs.

Parete Nord

Performance

In Parete Nord, experiencing dance as interlocked movements means employing it to explore what is on the outside and attempting to lose figurative boundaries – dissolving into the world. The piece is organised as a diptych: the opening part, built on the incessant and close dynamism of the performers, is followed by a landscape scene, inspired by the “geographical disobedience” that every mountain territory brings with it.

Camilla Monga

Duetto in ascolto

Performance

The young Italian choreographer Camilla Monga collaborates with the composer Zeno Baldi in a duet that employs attentive listening to explore processes of choreographic and musical accumulation. Every visual and aural stimulus becomes a recognisable sign to be turned into pure sound.

Nicola Galli

Deserto digitale

Performance

Deserto digitale is a choreographic composition dedicated to the revolutionary music of ‪Edgard Varèse and inspired by the piece Déserts. The composer’s experimental research is at the core of the performance, conceived as a visual and dream-like ritual between suspension, violence and catharsis.

Francesca Foscarini

Animale

Performance

Animale is a powerful and poetic work by the Italian choreographer Francesca Foscarini, winner of the Danza&Danza 2018 prize for emerging artists. Created for the French dancer Roman Guion, the solo – which premiered at the Venice Biennale in 2018 – is a choreographic jewel on the relationship between human and animal sensitivity.

Michele Rizzo

Deposition

Performance

“Deposition” is a term borrowed from physics: it refers to the process of turning volatile material into solid matter. In this hypnotic and evocative solo piece, artist and performer Michele Rizzo draws inspiration from this process of transformation to present to the audience a possible reverse transcendence – from the virtual to the deeply humane and back.

POST
From post-global to post-experimental

Concert

"From post-global to post-experimental" is a true mix of sounds: from the latest proposals of Intelligent Dance Music to the urban sounds of South American cities, via the garage rap of metropolitan suburbs and a post techno between noise music and 4/4 drum beat.

Rimini Protokoll (Stefan Kaegi) Thomas Melle

Uncanny Valley

Show

In this startlingly provocative new work, at FOG in Italian premiere, multi-award winning performance collective Rimini Protokoll engages with the issue of androids and their unsettling resemblance to humans.

Compagnie Didier Théron

LA GRANDE PHRASE
AIR

Performance

Bizarre and exhilarating, the cycle “GONFLES / Vehicles” by Compagnie Didier Théron elevates air to motor of creation. The figures of these works are dressed in inflated latex: it is the air inside and outside the costumes that generates forms and deformations, energy and dynamics.

Bonobo

Tú Amarás

Show

Addressing challenging – and very timely – questions about discrimination, this prize-winning play by the Chilean company Bonobo interrogates the relationship between progress and intolerance: who are the “others”? What marks their difference? How do they become the enemy?

Agrupación Señor Serrano

Kingdom

Show

The multi-award winning company Agrupación Señor Serrano presents Kingdom, an irreverent cocktail mixing bananas, King Kong, consumerism, virile choreographies, commercials, punk rock, supermarkets, growth, confusion, expansion, multinationals, shortages, coups d’état, bestiality, trap music and very macho men in an endless party.

Alex Cecchetti

Walking Backwards

Performance

In this site-specific work by Alex Cecchetti, the spectators are invited to walk backwards along a narrative path. With a guide walking on their side and stories of trees, plants and herbs whispered in their ears, they are accompanied in this immersive experience until they become the garden itself and realise that there are no beginnings and no ends: the path welcomes all choices.

HISTORY OF TOUCHES

Performance

In a day-long event dedicated to Alessandro Sciarroni’s artistic oeuvre, the spaces of Teatro dell’Arte are open to the public from the early afternoon, showcasing video documentation of the choreographer’s main pieces and a slideshow of his photographic works. At the same time, in the spaces of the Triennale, his dancers share with visitors practices from the artist’s movement research.

Hors-Champ

Performance

Situated in a colony of tents and performed by its spectators, this performance – in Italian premiere – questions our relationship to nature, to the other, to the concept of survival, to leisure and culture, through a series of meetings with “strangers” engaged in a scripted conversation. In Hors-Champ, each spectator enters a tent with another member of the audience – preferably someone they don’t know.

Deflorian / Tagliarini

Scavi

Show

Scavi is a fascinating performance of considerable historical value, devised for a limited number of spectators. Conceived alongside Quasi Niente, a piece inspired by Michelangelo Antonioni’s Red Desert, it is a public performance of the “discoveries” made by Daria Deflorian, Antonio Tagliarini and Francesco Alberici during the research and development phase of the work.

Rip it up and start again

Show

Rip it up and start again is a show-concert-karaoke-manifesto which digs in the recent past to look at the present through different eyes and build up dissent over the idea of a “generation whose every move was anticipated, tracked, bought and sold before it had even happened” (Mark Fisher).
