Veduta > is a modular format, with variable cast and length. It is dedicated to the city and to the perspective view of the urban landscape. The audience follows the performance through wireless headphones, overlooking a panoramic view of the city. The point of view is broad and can cover very close and far spaces, linked together by the soundtrack (recorded in holophonics with a strong cinematic imprint) and by the dislocation of the performers. In the episode of Bologna who inaugurated this format, the path of the performance ranged from the Farnese Hall of the Palazzo Comunale to Piazza Maggiore, to the summit of the Tower of the Asinelli. The urban scene is transformed by the audio into a place that floats between the present and the possible; the viewer is immersed in a landscape that is no longer just what is in front of him, but – just as in a sacred allegory – becomes a concentrate of coincidences and configurations that seem to refer to something else. Reality is now clouded, now sharply focused by sound, which presides over the imaginative power of vision and makes possible the multiplication of the details in a place with imaginary coordinates.
Strange conspiracies and mysterious activities redesign the ‘here and now’ to re-read urbanity through postures and signs of an elsewhere, investigated by sharp dances that may be very near or very far, on the horizon. Indoors and outdoors.
Dance is therefore literally a point of view on the world; it inscribes and affirms the figure in the community space and at the same time suggests an escape.
