Zoé - Appunti sulla nuda vita (notes on naked life) is the first study of the two-year project Genealogia by the artist Luna Cenere.
Genealogia works around the theme of the body as landscape and life, as the Greek word ζωη (zoé) in the title of this first stage recalls. A study conducted in nudity according to a canon that is now distinctive of the artist's poetics with five dancers exploring the zero degree of life, the invisible, the mystery contained in every birth.
The process consists in the pure transposition of thoughts and experiences made on the local territory into choreographic gesture, in the construction of an alphabet, of signs and landscapes that together build different reading levels, a choreographic language that expresses and interprets the body-present-contemporary.
Zoé - Appunti sulla nuda vita, is the construction of a space in which a small community of bodies is brought back to the zero degree of life. A space for 'reflection' on the body and on existence, which in its nakedness offers itself to the gaze, human, animal, depersonalised, headless. What is 'reflection' if not also a projection of the observer onto the body that expresses itself? Choreography is a writing about bodies and bodies that in this case becomes a declination of the forms and meanings of their naked life.
