Gli anni (The years)

Marco D'Agostin

Literature and choreography writing for Marco D'Agostin are the attempt to produce a language to tell the untellable. In the act of choreography writing, observing and reading, it is always possible to imagine the shadow of a story unfolding on the flow of movements, even when the composition seems fragmentary.

During the workshop, we retrace some of the practices that animated the creation process of “Gli anni” (The Years), a solo constructed by D'Agostin like a novel, in which we become both authors and readers at the same time.

The workshop is part of the EXPERIMENTING section.


An active artist in the field of dance and performance, Marco D'Agostin won the UBU Award in 2018 as Best Performer Under 35 and is an Associate Artist of the Piccolo Teatro in Milan for the three-year period 2022-2024.

His work explores the role and functioning of memory and focuses on the relationship between performer and spectator.

Since 2010 he has developed his own choreographic research, presenting his works in European festivals and theatres including Rencontres chorégraphiques int. de Seine-Saint-Denis, Théâtre de La Ville in Paris, Kampnagel in Hamburg, and Les Brigittines in Brussels. In summer 2021, he debuted with two new creations: BEST at the Biennale in Venice and SAGA, produced with the support of the Hermes Foundation's prestigious New Settings programme.


The workshop is designed for dancers, performer and authors with or without disabilities.
