In “Himalaya”, the coreographer Elisa Zuppini brings her research on the material and affective dimensions of the body and on the comprehension of reality, meant as an intricate interlacement of relational systems.
This time it takes inspiration from contrasting elements: the slow period of geological eras, the repetition of mechanical bodies and the dynamic fragmantations of the digital sphere.
Himalaya explores the collision between these systems, as if they were tectonics in movement which collide but don’t get stuck into each other. This can be seen as a metaphor of how these systems can operate on our perception: disconnected, forced and destabilizing.
In outlining these collisions, Zuppini gives life to new space-time perceptions and at the same time invites the spectator into a not linear dramaturgial construction where time and space bend and overlap.
