This work won the XIII International Festival of choreographic Miniatures, at the National Theater of Belgrade
and the first prize of “Solo contest” in 14MASDANZA – the International Contemporary Dance Festival of Canary Islands
Il gioco del gregge di capre it’s Fabrizio Favale’s solo and has a duration of 12 minutes, during which the dancer develops the dynamics observed, but also imagined, in flocks of goats. The result is a composition of a mixture between the real, the body that goes through the dynamics, and the fantastic, the background of the images on which the mouvements are reflected.
“Fabrizio Favale, whose work has been awarded several times, creates a mix between what is real (the body that emits a dynamic) and what is fantastic (the imaginary world in which he’s moving is reflected). The performer was able to immerse himselves in its theme and have so enriched by signs, concepts and nuances of his expressive range of movements, already very articulate. The essential use of lights and the choice of music helped to give an almost epic essence to the work. ”
“The dancer explores in depth the gestures of the arms, writhing in unusual and highly expressive poses. With his entire body shows an amazing plasticity and fluidity, able by himself to create a compelling work. He tries to return on the scene his impressions – real or imagined – of a flock of goats. The work manages to excite and surprise with its highly effective and spectacular scenes. ”
