EPPUR SI MUOVE
DANCE IN THE MUSEUM
Mattia Russo, Antonio de Rosa, Alejandro Moya, Astrid Bramming and Laura de Carolis will occupy the rooms of the Museum of Science and the Cosmos on November 24 and 25 with the performance Eppur si muove.
This choreographic intervention starts from experiential learning: through a completely different use of the museum space than usual, it seeks to establish a relationship between the public and the artistic work itself, based on closeness and experience. Each of the members of the company will inhabit a different room of the Museum, be it an interior or exterior space. The public will tour the different rooms guided by the movements of the dancers, so that it will become, in some way, one more element of the choreography.
Kor’sia's desire is to directly challenge the contemporary viewer, using unusual languages to trigger questions. Provoke a reflection on the universe from dance.
The piece is developed around two very different astrophysical concepts: on the one hand, dark energy, that mysterious force that makes space-time expand more and more rapidly, and, on the other hand, the pairs of stars that are born, shine and they go out together, exchanging matter and energy for billions of years, the so-called symbiotic stars.
These two elements will serve as a starting point to explore the plastic capacity of dance, the possibility of expressing through physical movement physical phenomena related to symmetry and asymmetry, balance, expansion and gravity.
