Project dedicated to Ermanno Olmi.
An almost unique project in its kind of dance epidodes realized entirely in agricultural environments. A traveling and nomadic project that starting from a research of the company based on the cycle of the Seasons and the archaic popular culture, projects itself into the invention of still unexplored choreographic possibilities.
The cycle is potentially articulates to infinity and is realized in meetings with the public in the marvelous and timeless peasant landscape. The appointments fall roughly in the seasonal changes: the dance manifests itself in the form of epiphanic encounters with beings, forms and profiles of animals, plants or humans that are not clearly identifiable, in visual realizations that evoke hybrid forms from natural world, but also the refer to unknown, invented, alien worlds.
Each event is unique, site-specific and takes place in different locations for each season. Places also change from year to year, accumulating over time as if drawing a new geographical map, made of the singularities of each landscape but also of the different local imaginative worlds. The performances are confirmed with any weather condition (sun, rain, snow …) that unites dancers and spectators.
A celebration of the Four Seasons, marked each time by innovative relationships between dance and landscape, between waiting and the appearance of extraordinary forms, to rediscover the vision of an almost extinct archaic world, but strongly present in our collective imagination. A project never realized before, which reveals and enhances wonderful glimpses of agricultural landscape, and at the same time offers the public the chance to meet dance in its most unusual and dreamy forms, as if to celebrate new events not written in the calendar, or as to want to establish a new transhumance.
