Some Choreographies is a dialogue between dancer Ramona Caia and projected videos of different dance styles and movement sequences. The choreography unfolds as a mimetic process. Ramona Caia’s movements encounter a multitude of traced fragments from the history of dance and the performance as narrated by cinema and the internet. The piece is a sensitive kinetic reflection by means of the extensive collection of recorded movements gathered by choreographer and filmmaker Jacopo Jenna. The film material ranges from historical to contemporary dance, from entertainment formats to cultural, spiritual ritual, from sports to home videos. Ramona Caia newly embodies, transforms, and connects the bodies depicted in these videos, picks up their dynamics, and mirrors their freedom and linguistic immediacy.

The second part will present an original video by artist Roberto Fassone, showing a succession of visual choreographies, a symbolic landscape devoid of human traces. Searching for a relation to the body on stage, it suggests a reflection on the immaterial matter that makes up dance.

Duration: 40 min.
