An innovative mix between dance and visual arts, combining works of art, performances and technology, born from the collaboration between Fondazione Palazzo Magnani and Fondazione Nazionale della Danza – Aterballetto
The project combines visual, performing arts and technology in a continuous exchange: Art will be represented by the works of thirteen contemporary artists; Dance will be contributed with the MicroDances created by five international choreographers and Technology will play its role with virtual and immersive instruments that will allow visitors to watch the performances – which will be live only in the opening and closing days – for the entire duration of the exhibition, allowing them to meet both the physicality of the dancers and the matter of art in a totally new way and triggering a new relation with space.
The exhibition path, curated by Marina Dacci, occupies eight rooms in the historical building of Palazzo da Mosto with dance installations interconnected with about thirty contemporary art works of the thirteen contemporary artists invited.
Leonardo Anker Vandal, Bianco-Valente, Fabrizio Cotognini, Antonio Fiorentino, Silvia Giambrone, Gianluca Malgeri, Matteo Montani, Mustafa Sabbagh, Vincenzo Schillaci, Namsal Siedlecki, Sissi and Giovanni Termini are Italian artists or artists who have lived in Italy for a while, and their works, which share vocation and assonance, will be combined with six MicroDances created by five choreographers: Saul Daniele Ardillo, Ina Lesnanowski, Philippe Kratz, Angelin Preljocai and Diego Tortelli. Each performance, conceived by Gigi Cristoforetti, the General Director of Fondazione Nazionale della Danza/Aterballetto, will last only a few minutes and will see one, two or three interpreters dancing in a confined space for the visitors of the exhibition.
