+ Dancing Amsterdam

In an international postcard such as Amsterdam, this short format videodance is an interaction between the unique urban set of the city of Amsterdam and an open research in videodance in terms of photo, colors, sound as well as through the presence of water, birds, architectures, paths from a privileged point of view, a Dutch bike.

+ UnderControl

+ CUM+NECTARE

Mini research site-specific on connective branches

@ Antico Spedale del Bigallo, Florence

CUM+NECTARE Latin etymology of CONNECT

The connective branches refer to all those nodes or intersections that we daily cross in reality and virtuality, they are the paths that allow the intersections, they are those relationships with the surrounding that now we take for granted but which are not at all obvious or trivial if we consider the much broader options we have as humans to interact with the environment, be it social, architectural, urban, sound, kinesthetic, biological and so on

CUM _Tuning Soundscape

CONCEPT & CHOREOGRAPHY Livia Marques

DANCE Livia Marques in collaboration with Matteo Ciucci

CUM first part of the word *Cumnectare

means in Latin TOGETHER, for this reason it is proposed a listening format

to the sound already present in the landscape itself.

From here is processed an open investigation on the reports that

this specific soundscape can result in the body and dance

duration 20 minutes

+ El horizonte no se mueve

El horizonte no se mueve

The horizon does not move

O horizonte não se move

L’orizzonte non si muove

Der Horizont bewegt sich nicht

L’horitzó no es mou

What if I told you all lines are horizons?

The more you see and think about the horizon as a steady and unchangeable point of view, the more you start observing the movement of things closer to you. By paying attention to the closest objects, it is possible to feel them, hear them, smell them and taste them, rather than inferring about their perception in that distant place.

It is in these two contradictory concepts, movement and stillness, in which the viewer is invited to wonder if the horizon isn’t more than just a perspective illusion.

+ Unnecessary

+ Open training of Contemorary dance

space timing gravity weight-force energy: these are the basic tools we will

work and play during an intensive 6 hours deep study about movement and dance.

Skeletal levers and physics laws more than anatomical structures.

Two meetingS of 3 hours each where we will share a technique training focused

on floor work as well as timing/space for the ensemble tuning and

specific soundscape.

Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th March

time schedule 14-17 h (both days)

at Il Vivaio del Malcantone

via del Malcantone 15 _Campo di Marte, Florence IT

info www.ilvivaiodelmalcantone.com

The OPEN TRAINING series is an intensive sharing moment where we analyze and go forward in contemporary dance research. Depending on the context and the group can be focalized in different aspects of the dance process.

Already happened, during the years in Italy (Florence and Milan) and Netherlands (Amsterdam).

+ Periferiche

Periferiche (peripherals in English) dance project was born in 2007 as a site-specific

investigation research at LibreriaCafe LaCitè.

The idea was be in physical touch with the space borderlines and the body surface of objects in

order to develop a starting point where the dramaturgy of dance arrives informally through the

impro-structure of the piece, supported by few elements for the costumes and a lot from the music

playlist and the piano live played during the performance.

The investigation of the peripherals was present also in the video shooting, done more freely

than a common video dance recording.

VisiBiLe_the Darkness in the world of Lights

site-specific dance project 2007

Invisibile paths. Lighting invisibility.

Which kind of relationship elapses between the Visible and Invisible?

darkness / escuridão / buio :

which meaning has the silence of Darkness in visual field, understood as a luminous flux?

Lighting to show the borderline and the landscape of darkness

three different stage design where movers pass through and organize always in the instant a rhythmic/directing sense,

supported by gesture images in tracing and retracing some key concepts of the meaning of VisibiLe, like myths,

archetypes, proverbs, everyday-life.. regaining/discovering the blindness of movement.

an impro-structure self-directed by light designers and performers together

+ FilRouge installation

Fil rouge [installation]

From the interaction between the matter and a red ball of wool, the site-specific installation Fil rouge expresses the fragility of raw material, the interaction between art and an architectural space and the possibility of making malleable and diversifiable the red wire in its form and in its meaning.

+ G…(H)ate

G... (H) ATE (read as G8/eight, G.hate/hate, Gate/exit) is a dance work about the G8 of Genoa in 2001.

A study on movement which talks about issues such as fear, violence, protection, vulnerability, anger, power, endurance…. let’s reclaim for our rights!
The show is not a documentary or a representation: there are six bodies on stage, which move and act, trying to evoke emotions experienced directly by the author during the G8. An attempt to remember, after over 10 years, what happened in those days, to reflect on timeless themes: the importance of the dissent and the need to give voice to ideals, but also the violence of death, the brute force and the collective trauma due to a rupture, a fragmentation, a collapse of organicity.

+ Prismatic 1

videodance - audiovisual installation

second research about Prism focusing on Cube, regular base prism

The Cube with its regular base is defined through six squares that we can understand as six diametrical opposite surfaces. The Prism, more in general, in his multi-sides, defines in his solid shape the idea of plurality and simultaneity of different points of view. A visual perception that wide spreads and becomes in tune in observing movement from inside and outside. Movement means as a continuos and basic element of Nature condition, and so not just but also of human beings.

prismatic 1 is composed by six different day-light-moments as subjects of investigation on a site-specific location (one of the roof of Alte Saline) that are in interaction through variation ways to build up an audiovisual installation, where the six day-light-moments are connected or not.

The anthropological and artistic methodology chosen is inside the international debate about the definition of videodance that it is possible to synthesized in the questions: does videodance witness the dance on stage? Or is it a hybrid landscape of poetic creation on the art of movement?

Definições Múltiplas new project for a dance piece and a book.

+ Body in Contemporary Arts, let us talk about it

Starting with a slide presentation, this talk was created to provoke a collective discussion and reflection where questions are still open and we can share different points of view. The slide presentation is just an introduction, touching important contemporary philosophy approaches and a synthesis of the main topics.

This is a good project to join during Festivals or Forum, where people can meet up each other face to face and have a kind of idea about the artistic process one of the other, as well as in education events where this Issue makes sense with the field of studies.

+ Prismatic 0

prismatic 0

videodance - audiovisual installation

First research about Prism focusing on Cube, regular base prism

The Cube with its regular base is defined through six squares that we can understand as three diametrical opposite projections by three cross-square basis. The Prism in its multi-surfaces, defines its solid shape the idea of plurality and simultaneity in the different points of view. A visual perception that spreads wide and becomes a tuned to observing movement from inside and outside. Movement means as a continuos and basic element of Nature condition, and also of human beings.

prismatic 0 is composed by three different subjects of investigation called Dancing feet, Before Raining and Roses. That are in interaction through variation ways to build up an audiovisual trittico where it rise up the eyes movement, the vibration movement in Nature and the dancing movement from external and internal sight using the camera attached in many parts of the body.

The anthropological and artistic methodology chosen is inside the international debate about the definition of videodance that it is possible to synthesized in the questions: does videodance witness the dance on stage ? Or could it be a hybrid landscape of poetic creation on the art of movement?
