NOLI ME TANGERE

ITA | ENG

Noli me tangere by Gabriella Riccio - ph Alessandra Finelliphoto Alessandra Finelli

Evocative and powerful, a sophisticated and minimal performance for sound incarnate and sounding bodies. The work is a physical score generated through the use of a sensitive sound environment applied to the performance. Messages from philosophy, poetry and literature intersect around the body, intimacy and relationship, touch and detach, eros and thanatos, human and divine. The performance reads and dances Jean-Luc Nancy and among the others Jean-Luc Nancy, Nietzsche, Nijinski and others. A nude scene, a number of microphones in a circle on piles of books, two bodies interact in a dramaturgy built through signs and actions on scene, multiplying the layers of meanings, merging conceptual and dramatic.

start with a gap / separating time / unbridgeable space between human beings / time-space discrepancy / distance between the phases of being / lapse / void / interruption / tending to / suggesting a  / continuum / noli me tangere / do not touch me / do not hold me back / transfigured Christ pronounces to Magdalene / impatience / urgence / piercing sometimes / like the performative act / do not hold me back from what I must accomplish now / because it is ethical for art to be / perhaps even scandalous is the urgence of this ethic of discovering / of showing  oneself exposed / going towards / an unrenounceable action / yet also  / a taboo / of contact / of allowing to be penetrated / of allowing to break and contaminate our sphere as individuals / attempting to not change status / not renounce the ego / not go beyond / because renouncing contamination takes to sterility / non fertile act / the warning becomes excruciating reminder  / to follow a path of transfiguration / towards a contact with / the intangible self-knowledge / one’s duty to accomplish oneself. [Gabriella Riccio]

Restano intatti l’idea e l’impianto drammaturgico. Ma la nuova formazione ha imposto una riflessione sulla scrittura coreografica ed una radicale riscrittura sonora grazie alla disponibilità de L’Asilo che ha accolto il lavoro in residenza coreografica.
