GENESIS

Inspired by Os pobres, a harsh and painful novel by the Portuguese writer and historian Raul Brandão, Elegìa delle cose perdute is a complex choreographic project that has engaged Zerogrammi dance company over three years of artistic process as a part of the residency programme Artisti nei territori / Interconnessioni in Sardinia (Italy). In the articulated creative trajectory that led to its creation, the company, following a working method consolidated over the years, questioned different territories, contexts and languages, collecting a living archive of materials and testimonies that nourished the dancing body with signs and inspirations not only of a choreographic nature but also coming from other vocabularies (visual arts, video, photography, literature) and from an experience of the world that is substantiated in the relationship with places and people outside the conventional frames of theatre. This process led to four different declinations, one interconnected with the other: in this order, a multi-award-winning medium-length film, a performance, a photographic book enriched by an unpublished text by Eugenio Barba, and lastly a community project that, accompanying the access of the performance, continues and multiplies the dialogue with new territories and communities.

(...) Stefano Mazzotta mette in scena un’opera di pura poesia, sprigionata da una comunità derelitta, esiliata, portatrice d’inquietudini, di desideri, di aspirazioni, di ricerca e attaccamenti alle proprie radici, di abbandono e di speranza.

Il cielo, il sole, la luna, le case all’imbrunire, i piedi inquadrati mentre passano sempre davanti alle stesse porte, la donna che piange , le danze collettive animano dall’interno un paesaggio pieno di bellezza quanto lontano da estetismi di maniera: un montaggio  figlio del corpo narrante.
