“Welcome. Enter either alone or with friends. Close the door. Choose your music. Press Play. Exit at the end of the track.” These brief instructions open the performance Dédicace by La PP – Pierre Piton and Romane Peytavin, a young Swiss company in Italy for the first time. An unusual jukebox, a playful challenge between the two performers on stage and the audience, who are invited to select their preferred music track and enjoy a performance for a close number of viewers. This play is also a moment of physical exploration for the performers who establish a mutual connection by using very simple codes such as canon, repetition, replication, complementarity. A choreographic marathon focused on the bodies’ ability required to respond to the music imposed on them.
