PANORAMA, the Motus’ Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò latest production, questions people’s motion and migration together with research on post-nationalistic identity. The show is indeed a collective and visionary biography of the interethnic group of performers belonging to the legendary theatre in the New York East Village, founded by Ellen Stewart: La Mama.
With the support of Erik Ehn for dramaturgy – and elaborate visual design developed at Seoul Institute of the Arts – Motus creates new existence’s scenarios on the concept of fluid identity and nomad identity, putting to the test any attempt to irrevocably fix people, nationalities, ethnicities, professions in hierarchical and unchangeable categories.
From Seoul to the Dominican Republic, from China to Vietnam through Turkey, PANORAMA is a kaleidoscopic performance on the human right to be in movement, on cultural nomadism and the artistic expressions it generates.
