Dancing in your Shoes/ Italië | IT
During the workshops with the Bologna community, we often wondered about the question of identity, observing it as a cultural construction, as a collection of encounters. We observed our presences of crowded bodies with the urgency of a silent space to find each other closer, moved in the dynamic of becoming together.
The creation intends to focus on the uniqueness of each performer as the nucleus of possible collective evolutions to give rise to a choral action of portraits in the making. Imagining it as a love parade, in which each body is a matrix that dances and generates multiple variations, it is intended to reflect on the time of becoming and on the desire to feel close, welcomed, united, and understood.
Crowded Bodies is a production by Cassero LGBTI+ Center / Gender Bender International Festival. Cassero LGBTI+ Center / Gender Bender International Festival is based in Italy and is a partner in the project Performing Gender - Dancing in your shoes. This project focuses on connecting dance to intersecting identities, working with dancers and local communities from eight different European countries. Read more about the project.
Co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
