Quel che resta

Simona Bertozzi presents her new site-specific creation as a national premiere for Dancing Days.

“Since the beginning of my journey with Marta, I have tried to attribute environmental characteristics to the space that could generate visions, change the density of the air and generate unexpected crossing abilities. Unpublished ways of being.

All this in order to meet in a boundless dance, to be able to reverberate beyond the awareness of our actions and surprise us, almost in spite of ourselves, in attitudes of affection and irresistible resonance.

Quel che resta was, at first, one of the territories of the map and of the practices, between glaciation, skins, escapes and then became the overlying image, the bubble, the degree of necessary presence, the shared gaze, the inevitable questioning on which pause, to find the subtle breath and pass from one dance to another.

From a section of space, Quel che resta has become the whole organism, the living, a multiplication of vectors, perspectives, anatomical flexions, rhythm and time.

It made us connective tissues, to imagine and welcome other inhabitants, to make temperatures and origins reverberate, to generate multiform chords of entry into the movement, looking each time for unexpected capacities to make a world. To generate us amazement.

Quel che resta is the impetuousness and lingering of the bodies, is the weightless touch: it extends a vocabulary of waits and restarts, of repeated geometries, of stickers, ice, resistance, epidermis and pupils and of refrains. To hook. ” Simona Bertozzi
