UBU Prize 2017

Best Dance Italian Performance : 

SYLPHIDARIUM

Maria Taglioni on the ground

direction, choreography: Francesca Pennini

 

In a white limbo. Like a Fashion Show. Like  a  collection of  insects. Like a ballet. Romanticism   that   goes   beyond   the   ‘contemporary’   and   its   conceptualisms, simultaneously  cooled  and  made  incandescent  by  a  look  of  lacerating  and  distant citation,  dedication  and  oxymoron.  A  journey  through  the  body  that  exposes  itself  in  the most  extreme,  aseptic  and  ascetic  nudity,  carrier  of  wonderful  clothes  in  which  to  hide and  celebrate  its  darkness,  exalting  and  projecting  itself  in  a  mythological  horizon. Sylphidarium  evokes  the  choreography  that  was  the  origin  of  the  romantic  ballet,  La Sylphide,  featuring  Maria  Taglioni  in  1832,  the  affirming  act  of  the  pointe  shoes  and  the tutu.  It  evolves  in  Les  Sylphides,  abstract  evocation  of  its  moon-like  fumisterie  of  1909, mutating  now  towards  entomology  with  the  sylphs,  beetles  that  feed  on  carrion  and  are used by scientists to trace the time of death of a body. An autopsy of classical ballet, transformed and hybridized by gymnastics, acrobatics and bodybuilding,  presenting  an  aerobic  finale,  modeled on  Jane  Fonda’s  keep-fit  videos, with  spatial  silver  outfits,  in  the  midst  of  a  white  scene  that  wants  to  repeat  the  dazzling effect  of  twirling  tutus.  The  fantasy  connects  with  the  ironic  dismantling  of  balletic scenarios,   of   the   story   of   Adolphe   Nourrit,   as   the   upward   leaps   fight   against   the disarticulation of the erect posture or freeze in tableaux that seem to stop time in a hybrid frame between the past, today and the future.A glowing work, supported by the highly mobile music composed by Francesco Antonioni and the iridescent, real, slightly crepuscular and imaginative lighting by Fabio Sajiz.A  reflection  on  the  forms  of  tradition  in  order  to  draw  a  mutant  body,  surpassing stereotypes typical of the "contemporary" genre, to venture into uncharted territories that go beyond the etiquette of predefined shapes and also that of contamination, in search of its generative urgency for expression.
