is the second episode of Nicola Galli's choreographic research dedicated to the desert and the notion of landscape.
Starting from the research path that gave birth in 2018 to the first episode entitled "Deserto digitale", the imaginative
vision of the desert takes shape again in the renewed desire to investigate the features of contemporary society
and the reflection of human activity on the world: a growing social solitude, anthropic speed and the "evaporation"
of the concepts of distance and limit.
The choreographer's poetics - devoted to the absence of hierarchies between the languages and elements
that make up the scene - unites and condenses gesture, light and sound in an organic and interdependent relationship
to generate a figurative archive that narrates the desert as an uninhabited physical space, a landscape of the body and
an inner existential condition.
The abyss of places around the world and the depth of the human soul take shape on the stage, crossed by opaque
and silent travelling figures that invite our gaze to contemplate tactile and muscular images and to get lost in multiple
perspectives that appear and dissolve in a magma of sound capable of suspending the cadence of everyday life to
the point of unravelling the perception of space-time.
