Elio Gervasi returns to the stage as a dancer and dances in a space of solitude where he encounters selected objects of his pieces.He draws the personal consequences from 35 years of choreographic activity, conducts a clownish dialogue with his shadow, and looks doubtfully into the future. He puts a distance between himself and his work in order to question it, position himself, and to be able to think further. To do this, he develops his own vocabulary of the body, which triggers a confrontation between the left and right halves of the body. He comes into conflict with his objects.
His solo is both a self-deprecating retrospective and an inventory of his old/new position as a dancer.
A production of the Tanz Company Gervasi supported by the Wien Kultur (MA7) and the Austrian Ministry for Arts, Culture, the Civil Service and Sport (BMKOES).
