but how much time has passed?
an island in the fog,
fragments emerging from the stillness
fragments, voices, soliloquies,
fragments of the presence remain and change in the unraveling/march of time
who will collect them? who will dare?
take flight or remain?
set out or stay?
Atto Semplice is a physical theatre performance that revolves around the revelation, the awakening. In a static space one pedestal, like an island.
A woman stands still like a statue, as if she were listening. Butterflies, abandoned objects, fragments crystalised in time, enchanted in soliloquies. Presences perhaps thousands of years old. The statue recaptures and rediscovers a living body and through the body is born the vision that animates it, and the action that will bring it back in time and in space.
The first study titled STA was presented by Serena Gatti in 2009 as part of the review “Sosta prolungata” (Prolonged Stop), curated by Sosta Palmizi.
With direction by Cecilia Bertoni and musical and sound collaboration by
Carl Beukman, the performance takes a twist and is born in a new form.
The three artists have already collaborated on the promenade performance Riflessi in bianco e nero (Reflections in black and white), directed in 2010 by Cecilia Bertoni.
