An outdoor version of “two to one” performed by Emanuela Iacopini and Frey Faust on music by Rajivan Ayyappan at the UprisingUp festival/Axis Syllabus Italia in the beautiful small city of Cisternino in Apulia on the 26th Aug 2020

Two to One

Duet extracted from “UNDO”, a contemporary tribute to the moving human body. “UNDO” was premiered by VEDANZA at the Théâtre National du Luxembourg in December 2017.

Devoid of a preconceived narrative and based solely on a readiness to follow and facilitate reactions and responses to off-balance movement and myo-fascial elasticity, Form of a Motion/Two to One develops from a solo into a duet. The work fully inscribes itself in the contemporary reality, reflecting on and continuing to pursue the challenging concerns of post-modern dance artists.

“Passionate about the link between art and science, Emanuela Iacopini continues her on-going research on fascia with “UNDO”. For this original full length work, she invited choreographer, dancer and pedagogue Frey Faust, a figure of the eighties New York dance scene and author of the Axis Syllabus, an analytical approach to movement based on scientific data” (City Magazine, Dec. 2017).

“Very beautiful… something for the greater public!” (Frank Hoffmann, director of Théâtre National du Luxembourg, 16 Dec. 2017).

“This duet invites the viewer in, which is not always the case with improvisational structures…” (Bryan Brady, director of the Laban Theatre, London, 20 Dec. 2017)
