A performance both for dancing and lifeless bodies dedicated to Medusa by Caravaggio

A performance both for dancing and lifeless bodies dedicated to the Medusa by Caravaggio and consisting in a sort of revelation created by the contrast darkness/light, visible/invisible. Light is the crucial link in the relationship between the dancer and her puppet: they come out from light or plunge into darkness becoming visible and invisible alternatively. A tableau vivant where the red prevails and becomes more intense thanks to the walls’ colour to produce a juxtaposition between aesthetics and ethics where darkness is essential to light to reveal its existence.

 

Performance supported by an Italian ministerial project carried out in 2016.
