Who is Joseph?

Ticket from 10 € to 14 €
Under 26 with Oriente Occidente Emozioni 5 €


Davide Valrosso's point of departure is the reflection by philosopher Giorgio Agamben on the nature of contemporary life, with the last two years seeing the choreographer concentrating on site-specific work around the biography of the body. In his latest solo Who is Joseph? a series of silhouetted gesticulating figures conjure up a stream of images. The solo performance of the choreographer/performer is divided into three separate choreopgraphic pictures -Threshold, Conflict, Resilience- with each one expressing the artist's desire to question the past, the present and the future. The questions become gestures, giving voice to "that vivid silence" which forms the background of our contemporary lives.
