With the support of La Radice dei Viandanti ETS – Teatro la Luna nel Pozzo

Duration :43 min.

Two bodies, different in weight, mass, proportions, and wooden sticks of different length, weight, mass.
Playing with proximity and distance. Practicing an empathic gaze.
Finding strategies for intense listening, a patient, and constant transition between leading and being led. Testing the reactivity of the spatial relationship.
Reading the nature of relationships: threatening, reassuring, liberating, tender, humorous…

ELASTIC_EMPATHIC is an attempt to internalise lived or imagined experiences and instantly manifest the desire, intention, perspective of the other, and the non-human.

Artists note:
The work was born as a practice in the winter of 2021, during the second lockdown. We were both in Berlin, the dance studios were inaccessible or only for one person at a time, the desire to dance irrepressible, above all, the desire to dance together. We started practising every day in the park, improvising with 1 1/2 m sticks in respect of the infamous “social distance” mandates. ELASTIC_EMPATHIC was born from this spiritual survival strategy.
