About the Choreographer/Company
Castello is probably the most ideologically engaged and politically controversial choreographer among the founders of Italian contemporary dance.
In the earliest '80s, he dances with Carolyn Carlson’s Teatro Danza la Fenice where he creates his first choreography.
About the Performance
A rugged black and white and hypnotic music are the environment in which the micro stories are linked together.
The cold light of a video projector articulates the spaces and geometry, and the black costumes project the characters into a timeless past inhabited by a dispersed humanity that moves on, struggling, with a brusque, emotional, disorganized gestuality, beyond exhaustion.
