MoDem is the choreographic language that Roberto Zappalà has developed in his 32-year career with his company. Through practices that have acquired a specific terminology linked anatomically to flows, controls, articular and muscular exegeses, often inspired by the activity of the volcano Etna. A methodology that aims to bring the dancer closer to the language that characterizes Compagnia Zappalà Danza.
