Fondazione Bonotto and Centro Pecci for a special project
Slide in B
BONOTTOEDITIONS Showroom, Milan. November 12, 2016
On Saturday November 12, from 17 to 20 Annamaria Ajmone will "inhabit" the BONOTTOEDITIONS Showroom's spaces in the historic Palazzo Durini together with the live audio by Caned Icoda.
Slide in B is the new chapter of "Pratiche di abitazione temporanea", a project by Annamaria Ajmone which includes a series of site-specific dance performances, every time different depending on where they take place and they relate to.
"In every place I build and develop a dialogue. I start from observing and experiencing the space, through the suggestions I receive, I build a network of relationships and connections. After loosing myself in the space, I distance myself from it by leaving. I look at it from a distance and then I get closer, in order to let the space changing me and, at the same time, making me manipulating it. It is a continuous game made of references, exchanges, elements echoing and mixing together".
With Slide in B, Ajmone collaborates with Caned Icoda reconsidering and revaluing the Palazzo Durini's spaces through the dialogue between movement and sound reworking, creating an action that develops gradually, accumulating some information and erasing some others, tracing an open and changing flow where the public "read and is read."
Slide in B will be presented on the occasion of the 18th edition of DANAE FESTIVAL, multidisciplinary festival created and edited by Teatro delle Moire, dedicated to the new languages of the live performances (dance, theater and music) that supports young artists and makes a scouting work in support of emerging names, alongside to more established one. Danae always takes place in different spaces, not just in theaters, and presents performances both to be enjoyed sitting in the theater hall and other site specific projects.
Ajmone is back to DANAE FESTIVAL after the success of last edition and the the prestigious award of Danza & Danza 2015.
