After featuring her in its latest editions, Danae Festival co-produced Mash, the latest work by the talented Annamaria Ajmone – winner of several awards – and created with Marcela Santander Corvalán, dancer and choreographer of Chilean origins, and graduated at Scuola Civica Paolo Grassi along with Ajmone. MashUp, in music, means a composition created by freely mixing two or more samples. Mash applies the same method to choreography, drawing upon the early 20th century cabaret, the 1960s first rock performances, the early 1990s TV formats to reflect on the cultural and individual contaminations that constantly shift and “mingle” boundaries.
