Ipercorpo 2014

 

ITALIAN PERFORMANCE PLATFORM


SAVE THE DATE   >  16 - 17 May 2014

Italian Performance Platform is a project part of the festival Ipercorpo 2014 and is intended to present to international programmers 5 of the most interesting Italian companies working in the field of theatre/dance/performing arts: Città di Ebla, gruppo nanou, I Sacchi di sabbia, Muta Imago, Opera. Deposito ATR, an old bus depot in the heart of the city of Forlì (near Bologna), will be the “house” of the Platform and in 2 days, 16th and 17th of May, we invite you to discover a varied program with live performances and concerts, meetings with the companies you will see on stage, “short cuts” a meeting with young companies who will present their performances in video and by quick talks. In our platform we try to look at the big experience of the European platforms, but we cannot forget we are in Italy, so don’t worry about good food and amazing late night parties! The program is rich but you can have the time to see the city and others cultural events in program in Forlì.

 

 

CITTA' DI EBLA

La metamorfosi

Inspired by Kafka’s Metamorphosis tale, the performances cross everyday life connections with this story of bodies that became animals. In a bathroom a man takes a bath after a long business travel, after listening to the messages on the answer machine where people press him with meetings and things to do. He wants to escape from social constraints and the metamorphosis is the way or the consequence.  www.cittadiebla.com

GRUPPO NANOU

Anticamera

Unit of time, usual place, empty; the room of the secrets. The dramaturgy is based on the interaction of a few charachters submerged in a usual and ordinary environment, wherein extraordinary elements move the daily routine of the action. A bourgeois inner enclosed in a box. A memory stolen fron the keyhold. Traces from an elsewhere that remains attached to the memory. We can only offer narrative residues and from here we can regain the “Narrative” as a ruin of an event that we can only suppose or imagine. The “Narrative” is always “out of the window”. The drama is not present on stage. www.grupponanou.it

I SACCHI DI SABBIA

W.A.Mozart’s Don Giovanni

The Mozart’s Don Giovanni as you’ve never seen before: the music became movement, mime, grimace and rude noises for a refined parodic act without musical instruments but with a bizarre “orchestra” of 6 elements with unnatural passion for the beauty.  www.sacchidisabbia.com

MUTA IMAGO

Pictures from Gihan

Through Gihan’s glance, a young egyptian blogger who lived the revolution in February 2011 in Taharir Square with hundreds of thousands citizens, Muta Imago trace a personal and collective story recollecting and manipulating the traces of a life that happens faraway from us, asking ourselves why we feel it so close to us.  www.mutaimago.com

OPERA

Opera

Opera is the name of the company and is the title of their first show too, a journey into the world of the representation where the clowns, the puppets, the masques of Commedia dell’Arte want to explore the sense of the theatre and the role of the artist, with poetry, strong visual imaginary and a smart look on clichés.  www.operaweb.net
