DOLLY

Running time: 25 minutes

Since 1959 over 700 million Barbie dolls have been sold. Two Barbies per second are bought every day. Barbie is skinny, lean, self-confident, joyful, established. She is an astronaut, a cowgirl, a veterinarian, an executive director, a disco queen, an ambassador for UNICEF, a nurse, a ballerina, a horseback rider, an animal lover, a tennis player, a professional swimmer, an amateur swimmer, a skier. This impeccable, smily toy has contributed to shape and form the way the female body is viewed. Starting from this observation, Dolly seeks to investigate automatism. The body is maneuvered from the outside, it's a rented body, the occupant does not own it. She can only give in to a condition that forces her to be an ornament, and become bare flesh. Dolly researches a mechanical way of inhabitating the body, of making flesh a tool and actions an imposition.

Gut Gift

Running time: 25 minutes

Having won Equilibrio Award Rome 2013 for Performer, Francesca Foscarini invited Yasmeen Godder to create a solo for her. Given this invitation, Godder decided to begin with an already set sequence of performative and physical processes, which didn’t necessarily arise out of Francesca's body and psyche, and to use this extension to expose something about her as a performer. Within this search for a personal process, using a learned language, the choreography plays with the undressing of a socially aware persona in order to expose instinctual animalistic and primal urges. These two pulling forces in the work trick us by playing with the way we perceive what is authentic and real in this research.Is the process of gutting out her animal counterpart a means of approaching another level of consciousness? Or is it rather just a physical exploration hoping to create a particular effect on the audience? How does the audience's gaze enhance, feed, close-off or promote these different shifts and transformations of her body and psyche? And how does this particular performance poetry exposes a view of female stereotypes ranging from the hyper- sensitive and emotionally charged to the primal and visceral?

MOUSING | ON THE OTHER HAND

Running time: 25 minutes

Another story. Again, further on and from the other side. If I show what I have in one hand, what do you suppose I have in the other? On stage, a woman and all the women in the world. 
On the Other Hand as reflection, rethinking and the chance of reaction, as a search for individuality and uniqueness but also for relation and dialogue with the chance of sharing. The body on stage outlines images by drawing space with the reaction of the reflex to the world’s conditioning. A woman’s story.
A story made of movement. A construction of images in movement, in continual transformation.
On the Other Hand came about after the creation of Mousing, a performance conceived for a Korean dancer interpreted by Jin Yeob Cha.
On the Other Hand is a consequence and an effect of Mousing yet it is also its re-thinking, reflection and reflex. It stands as a comparison and represents the possibility of dialogue ininterpreting and dancing the same choreographic intention.

SUL PUNTO

Running time: 17 minutes

Sul punto by Claudia Catarzi observes the layer between conscious and unconscious, the land between awake and asleep, where we hand over control over our body — and our mind? Claudia Catarzi develops an enormous variety of movements, postures, and gestures that establish a dialog towards the audience. There is a wonderful equivalent between stillness and motion. The stillness allows the audience to syncronize. Some clicking noise samples, every now and then, minimalistically interrupt the stillness acoustically.
