PREMIERE: ATLAS 3 – Blu Blu Blu // Emanuele Soavi incompany // 28/02/20 // LOFFT Leipzig
Blu Blu Blu – finiteness at last. How do performers* deal with the changes and limits of their bodies? How does the inner and outer view of the EGO, which does not exist without YOU, develop over time? Does it come to a retreat or does a liberation strike follow? The third part of Emanuele Soavi’s ATLAS series throws these and other questions into the ring – or rather onto the mat. 3 disciplines (music / Asian martial arts / dance) and 6 protagonists meet, mirror, duel and unite: the internationally established baroque violinist Nadja Zwiener, composer and sound artist Johannes Malfatti, performer Lisa Kirsch, dancer Federico Casadei, two judokas, each a cosmos of her own, body, instrument, machine. Their material is the dynamic analysis, the movement, the composition in the field of tension between public and private space. Full of the longing to leave traces behind, they set out in search of sound and body images for the struggle for meaning.
