The stage debut of Collettivo MINE, Esercizi per un manifesto poetico coincides with the foundational act of the company. This co-authorial manifesto finds its dance formula in a choreographic practice written by ten hands, where individual and unison breaths interpenetrate, and where the choral and synchronic weaving of space and body becomes the inspiration of a collective language, as well as of an evocative poetics.
Repetition; stubborn determination; a single, powerful and structured stage action, as an instrument of shared writing, generating interactions and igniting correspondences, giving life to a single body that meditates on the shared ability to tackle changes and the passing of time.
MINE is the result of the artistic encounter between Francesco Saverio Cavaliere, Siro Guglielmi, Fabio Novembrini, Roberta Racis, and Silvia Sisto. It is a collective experiment, a horizontal creation and a choreographic writing by ten hands. MINE signed the choreographic project Corpi Elettrici (Electric Bodies) in 2020 and has collaborated in Swans never die (Danzare la memoria 2020-2022) in 2021.
Have you been to Gorizia before?
Yes, this will be our fourth time in Gorizia.
What do you look forward to doing again?
To admire Gorizia’s Collio and Gianni’s supersize cutlets and lubianskas.
What awaits you after Visavì?
Our paths will part, but not for long. We’ll meet again in Rome, where we’ll dance the same show at RomaEuropa Festival.
You have the power to do one thing to change the world of dance: what is it?
Reducing the gap between “A-rank” and “B-rank” dance, and scarce funding for new dance lan-guages, research and creation in particular.
If you could give one piece of advice to yourself as a child, what would it be?
We would tell them to learn from others without losing their individuality in an attempt to fulfil the models that are transmitted to us; that being creative is a great virtue; that even fantasy implies an act of revolution.
And to a new dance company moving its first steps?
Three words to describe what dance is to you.
Memory, body, desire.
Tell me briefly what your show is about. Now convince me to come and see it :)
The performance is an act of resistance, a mutual choice, a scenic action capable of giving life to a single body. The show is worth seeing because it can be enjoyed in its energy and physicality, as well as in its evanescence and delicacy. Each person in the audience is captured by different nuanc-es and intimately gathers what is offered on stage.
