A coproduction by compagnia zappalà danza – Scenario Pubblico
The motto from Jules Verne’s Michael Strogoff “Guarda, a tutt’occhi guarda…” (“Look, with all your eyes, look!”), inspires this production of the compagnia zappalà danza.
Sight as both our major source of information and carrier of perception puzzles and paradoxes – is the subject of investigation of Roberto Zappalà’s work, as part of his larger project on sensory perception "Corpi incompiuti".
Sight is the sense that bears within itself the two primary elements of creation, light and darkness; sight is itself a ‘point of view’. Dance moves within these motifs, exploring intersections, relations, short-circuits.
Dance as interdependent on sight.
