Description

A choreography for several polystyrene shapes and one human. Materia explores the possibilities of polystyrene, to the point it becomes alive and protagonist of the events on stage. A path leads and follows the material from the hesitating movement quality of a delicate encounter to the loud soundscape of a self-sufficient apparatus. Drifting between calmness and darkness, between discovery and destruction. Award-winning producers Aurora Nova and Andrea Salustri present a performance where man and polystyrene dialogue in a non verbal language. Within a set score, objects are free to perform and take initiatives.
