“Relais” is a performance for five dancers.
First time out of twenty years of experimentation with new technology, that Ariella Vidach doesn’t place digital technologies as principal element.
Without denying the history of the company that has excelled in the use of new technologies in dance, “Relais” resizes the presence of digital technology, as well as images and its projection, to bring attention to the body, its matter and its consistency.
With this new production Ariella Vidach wants to return to the concreteness of the reality of people and objects exploring space through volumes, shapes and sounds of matter.
On the pages of “Il Sole 24 Ore”, Marinella Guatterini “Relais combines fragments creaking sounds, but also moments of life, feelings of play, wonder, poignant memories, oblivion side, marked by gestures and in the foreground facial expressions.
