Choreographer Camilla Monga and musician Emanuele Maniscalco’s research is focused on a new way of composing choreography and music as a single score. With In the Moment they explore several improvisation techniques that become forms of composition.
Camilla Monga is a choreographer who graduated from Fine Arts Brera and Choreographic Research at P.A.R.T.S. Academy. Her works have been presented in several contexts, including Biennale Danza di Venezia, B.Motion Danza, Bolzano Danza festival, Julidans Art Lab, Spazio – ICK Amsterdam, Triennale Teatro / Milan, Cango, Camping CND Paris and Fabbrica Europa Florence. In all her works dancers and musicians become the performers of a single score that evokes shapes and images. Her work with visual, logical and emotional associations create a sequence of events, exploring the processes of improvisation and instant composition which unite the two disciplines.
Emanuele Maniscalco is a multi-instrumentalist, drawing inspiration from various influences ranging from jazz to ambient music. After his music studies in Siena, Brescia and Copenhagen between 2001 and 2014, he found his own expressive dimension that brings together multiple sources of inspiration in a lively and extemporaneous approach, from early to modern day music. He teaches at the popular music department of the L. MarenzioState Conservatory in Brescia.
