Call my name is a private performance, in which a spectator calls a company dancer through WhatsApp, ready to dance just for him. The spectator buys the ticket, providing his phone number, day and time when he wants to meet his dance. At the end of his piece, the dancer will summon a colleague of his on the screen, leaving him the place, in a sort of relay race.

This spectacular pioneering format mixes material and immaterial, technological substance and substance of the imagination, in an encounter with intimate and mysterious dance at the same time. For a handful of minutes a flesh-and-blood dancer turns only for us into an electric circuit made of bits, impalpable yet poignant.
