Red Herring*
(Dance and puppet show)

The protagonist of the story is an actress/a marionette, who is faced with a problem of choice. The actress is trying to create a performance on her own, but can’t make decisions at every step of creation: what costume to choose? what theme? which props? Because all her life she has worked in a theatre where the director makes the decisions. It’s an allegory of the life of a modern man who faces the problem of choice at every step.

The marionette was chosen as the artistic image to portray a person who has lack of freedom, dependent on material things, on society and controlled by it all. Red Herring reflects on the topic of man’s freedom. It’s a statement about the modern world, where there are no more limits, where everything can be bought, sold, found, managed at home and bought on the internet. Man is now as free as never before, but what can he do with it? Are we really free?

Concept, choreography & performance: Makhina Dzhuraeva

*RED HERRING is a term that defines something that distracts attention from something more important. As a matter of fact, there is no such a thing as RED HERRING in the nature; however, this expression became popular to define something that slipped the public attention or something that was deliberately hidden to throw off the scent.

YoY collective – Emma Zani & Roberto Doveri

YoY is a young collective born in 2020, consisting of Emma Zani and Roberto Doveri. (dancers and choreographers) and Timoteo Carbone (composer). A project that combines dance, music and contemporary art, in search of contamination and new forms of expression. YoY defines itself as a cultural organism with a common goal: to share ideas.

INESORABILMENTEUNAVIA, inspired by the Bizhan Bassiri’svideo installation “Il Bisonte”, is the representation of the undisciplined inexorable path of nature that regenerates itselfwithout ever ceasing its course. Everything seems to stop in front of the appearance of the artwork: an apparition of a cosmicdimension that conquers the space creating a powerful energy charge.
The form turns itself in pure energy , there is no beginning and there is no end. A journey that capture the eye, in search of continuous associations and symbols that alternate, repeat and move within a closed and hypnotic cycle. The choreography proposes a path, placing itself as a decisive negation of the explosive and muscular expression of energy, often labile and passing, which does not represent true strengthbut only imbalance. In the performance, the loop of the movementbecomes almost liturgical, tending towards the achievement of a spirituality that draws its inspiration from the idea of life force typical of the oriental philosophies. INESORABLMENTEUNAVIA is a sort of exhortation to searchfor new balances.
