Who cares? Ecologia del dialogo (2019)
Who Cares? Ecology of dialogue merges experiences, visions and individual aesthetics of young choreographers and musicians from different Mediterranean countries (Italy, Spain and Lebanon) in a collective work conceived for public spaces. The work was born inside Sedimenti, one of the sections of PETROLIO. Uomo e natura nell’era dell’Antropocene, project of Matera 2019 – European Capital of Culture, curated by Associazione Basilicata 1799.
Sedimenti is the productive path realized in spring 2019 in four stages of artistic residency between Florence, Beirut, Ravenna and Matera, in which the creative process was supported by the sharing of bodily practices, the development of co-creation methodologies and the accompaniment and tutoring of curators and artists.
Who cares about environmental disasters, community, culture, politics? Who cares? Ecology of dialogue is a co-creation project in which four young choreographers and two musicians make their meeting the starting point for the construction of a performance that revolves around the theme of Anthropocene. Languages, bodies, universes confront each other giving life to a new community: the transmission of the personal diversity of each of its components, from accessory, instrumental, preparatory to the staging, becomes central, making the collective creative path a paradigmatic laboratory of possible symbolic actions in the face of the epochal uncertainties to which man is subjected in the renegotiation of his role in the ecosystem. In the uncertain frontier between methods, cultures, symbolic apparatus is placed the strong point of a new collective entity, which is not defined within given boundaries, but in the comparison around common shores. On stage takes shape an imaginary territory of the Mediterranean, a geography outside from any possible toponymy and ethnography. In this land of encounter the only commodity of exchange is the dialogue between bodies, engaged in the creation of a vocabulary danced, played, made of gestures and actions, joints and conflicts to answer the question “Who cares? / Who cares?”.
