Alessandro Schiattarella / Jesús Rubio Gamo

Katapult & Åbne Scene, Aarhus, Denmark

Friday 28 April, 2017 | 5:30pm–6:10pm

Alessandro Schiattarella - Altrove - Switzerland

Jesús Rubio Gamo - Bolero - Spain


Altrove is a movement score for a re-invented body. Diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease causing a gradual atrophy of the nerves and muscles in his hands, Alessandro began imagining the condition would spread to his limbs and estrange him from his own body and senses. Altrove explores movement beyond the amplitude of the familiar gesture. In this delicate solo the audience witnesses the creative response of a body breaking free from its own limits.

Bolero is about tenacity. The duet explores the frontier between lightness and gravity and the fine line separating pleasure and exhaustion. When too much practiced, even the best things - Ravel’s Boléro, love and dance - often end up breaking up, don’t they?
