Can Can appears in Paris in the 19th century as a development of the quadrille, a codified dance for couples within which women progressively appropriate the practice of “solo” (typically male). In this movement of emancipation, the use of the legs plays a fundamental role, which, normally hidden by the skirts of the time, acquire more and more mobility and articulation. A revolutionary and erotic dance, for this long banned. The origin of the term Can Can is still debated, however it seems to have to do with the noise, confusion and above all scandal. The different historical aspects in this project are included and declined in a possible interpretation of the present. In particular, the aspect of revolt with respect to the patriarchal vision of the body and relationships becomes the reason for the affirmation of a hypo-performative dance that intends to distance itself from static representation models, looking beyond the predominant canon.
