Awarded the 2018 Premio Ubu as best perfomer under 35, Marco D’Agostin is back at Danae with one of his latest works. Avalance (avalanche) is a dance where the word is the condition underlying the movement and the relationship between the two dancers on stage – apparently located in a “day-after”, at the dawn of a new world – who act using a trickle of words, sounds and languages, while carrying on their shoulders a millenary sadness. The unsurvived leaves an invisible mark on what is left, which is evoked as a rule, a collection, a list of chances. The language gets articulated so as to remember, and the body language gets refined to become a repository of the end.
After the play, a meeting with the artist will be held by Alessandro Pontremoli, Professor of Performing Arts at the Università degli Studi in Turin.
