The Italian Cultural Institute of Moscow is presenting a series of six video-ballets dedicated to the theme of dance and its history, in collaboration with Memory in Motion. Re-Membering Dance History (Mnemedance, Ca ‘Foscari University of Venice, 2019-2022).
The project, curated by Susanne Franco, is an investigation into how choreography, in dialogue with the language of film, organizes time, leading the viewer to reflect on the relationship between past, present and future from an unusual perspective, namely dance and its history.
Each of the six artists involved in the project has created a video of approximately 25 minutes representing a stage of this investigation into time in choreographic form. The common thread running through the pieces is that dance is not ephemeral, it does not vanish once it has been performed, but leaves traces.
The two evenings will be held at the MMOMA Museum, as part of Contemporary Art Day.
The works are by: Marco D’Agostin, Silvia Gribaudi, Jacopo Jenna, Matteo Maffesanti, Masako Matsushita, Camilla Monga and Alessandro Sciarroni
