Lampyris Noctiluca

Fireflies are always nice to see, and in a world of special effects and extremes, they still amaze us with their calm, slow pace. Pier Paolo Pasolini wrote about their disappearance and today they represent, as they did then, a poetic posture that evokes the search for one's desire.

Light illuminates the forms that Aristide Rontini's body is able to take, and there is no limit to the viewer's gaze. Dance is the bearer of a diversity that is no longer only desired, promoted, celebrated and described, but also fully experienced.
