Home Altrove reflects upon the invisible communication between actions and thoughts, between what is here and what is elsewhere, starting from the assumption that the performance act can be considered a ‘home’ in terms of a personal, functional, emotional archive, therefore the place where our identity arises.

Home Altrove aims to explore ever-changing forms of language that flow within a heterogeneous environment in which boundaries – between spaces, languages and directions – is a turbulent but also enriching place.

At a time in history when the concept of ‘world home’ echoes in our global consciousness, choreography, sound and video frames are reflected on stage to give some thought to how fragile is the present state of things and to open up a question: in the ever-changing contemporary world we live in, what is ‘home’?

HOME is a choreographic/performing art project aimed to produce modular practices, actions and interactions starting from the idea that the inner working of any performance act can be considered as a ‘home’ in terms of a personal, functional or emotional archive. Home as the place in which human identity relates to our ever-changing contemporary world, where floating forms of language (José Gil) flow within a living, heterogeneous environment and the limit – between spaces, languages, directions – is a turbulent place (Stefano Levi della Torre).

In practical terms HOME consists of encounters/exchanges declined in context-specific performance acts, videos, workshops, interactions with local communities, dialogs and actions. Each format is conceived as a self-standing, autonomous object and at the same time as part of the overall creative process of the project that is thus constantly redefining its identity.

Elsewhere is a performance, but also a frame in which to reflect upon a space that is somewhere else and yet here. It’s an inquiry into the invisible communication between the dancers, between dancers and space, between organization and freedom. The duet represents an evolution of Birds Flocking Project that condenses shared researches and creative processes that have emerged from the fascination with the complex trajectories that flocks of birds create. The choreography confronts the opposite polarities of structure and freedom to define each action, while the intricacies of movement collide with the impossibility of a precise notation. The concepts of flying and migration are a starting point to unveil the mingled imagery of our contemporary world made of different languages and contexts, where liquid borders foster exchange.

Daniele Albanese and Eva Karczag’s first encounter dates back to 1993, when he started attending the European Dance Development Center in Arnhem, where she was a member of the permanent teaching staff. After more than twenty years they decided to embark on a shared path of creation and research that led to Birds Flocking Project in 2017 and subsequently evolved into the duet Elsewhere.

For the past four decades Eva Karczag practices, teaches, and advocates for explorative methods of dance making. Her performance work and her teaching are informed by dance improvisation and mindful body practices which engender trust in the body’s innate capacity for ease, efficiency and integrated openness, including Alexander Technique (certified teacher), Ideokinesis, Taiji / Qigong. Teaches at major colleges and studios throughout the USA, Europe and Australia, including a period of sustained teaching at the European Dance Development Center (EDDC), Arnhem (1990- 2002). Has a Master of Fine Arts degree (Dance Research Fellow) from Bennington College, VT, USA. A member of the Trisha Brown Dance Company (1979-85), since the mid-1980s, functions as an independent dance artist, performing solo and collaborative work internationally. Recent performances include Promenade, a durational performance/installation with visual artist, Chris Crickmay and composer, Sylvia Hallett; Vapour Sketches with Bettina Neuhaus; Stephanie Skura’s Surreptitious Preparations for an Impossible Total Act. The profound influence of the New York post-modern dance movement of the 1960’s and 70’s has given her current dance practice a foundation of respect for the moving body, and a passion for creative process and experimentation.

‘The Event Horizon’ of a Black Hole defines an imaginary surface of time and space.
The points placed on one side of this surface emit signals that can still escape from the black hole.
The signals of the points placed on the other side can no longer escape and therefore can not be observed’.

VON solo is set in this imaginary border where what is clear and legible encounters what is dark and mysterious.
Natural forces, physical forces and political forces, transform, distort and move the body of the performer.
A reflection on dance meant as a continuous mutation and transformation. The performance is conceived as a choreography of the three elements of movement, light and sound.

This Solo is originally set at the end of a larger show with two other performers on stage- it is performed both separately and within the context of the entire piece. It has been developed in its final structure, as an indipendent piece, in September 2017.

The relationship between dance and music takes place within a circumscribed geometrical space, while forms and transformations would relentlessly repeat.

Limit and boundary are the key concepts of the piece. The contrast between them and a continuous flow of movements become the starting point for seeking an “elsewhere”

Drumming solo has been presented for the first time, with live music, on April 18th 2015 in Turin /Teatro Vittoria as part of Red Blue Works (produced by Unione Musicale onlus for Confluenze di Atelier Giovani in collaboration with Festival Torinodanza / Fondazione Teatro Stabile Torino).

Digitale Purpurea I is the research of a continuous dance among movement, lights and sound , non-stop changing of dynamics and presence.
The dance develops as a result of a study on the movement in terms of speed, time and meeting with live music and lights.
The choreography is designed as a counterpoint of physical score, sound and light, and as a concert of these elements .
The movement is a flow, a continuous scroll and its obligated deal with the form to engage the viewer in a common field of ​​great power .
Conceived as a modular project that can vary format and number of perfomers depending on the context .
The forces of nature and its dynamics are the main engine of reference for the dance, its textures and contrasts.

Digitalis Purpurea (Common Foxglove): herbaceous plant whose flowers are arranged in terminal clusters, pendants, tubular, with a color ranging from purple to pink, yellow or white . The essence of Digitalis can be used as a drug to cure heart failure. In wrong doses, the plant is highly toxic up to be lethal to humans.

A space filled with Forces.
The audience is led into a hypnotic dimension marked with persistent rhythm and the slow but unavoidable changing of the light.
Key element is the passing of time.
A picture of the elusive passage from day to night: the usual world is transfigured, the inner body becomes space and daily gesture blurs in unknown paths.

A show on the powerful force of the unseen.

Performance thought as choreographic Note on Attraction and Absence, a book of notes and fragments that investigates the complexity of a composition within a very simple frame.
The physical score has been created by defining forces of attraction and reveals itself in the solitude of the movement and in the echo of an absence.
Two main fields of research – one of physical dynamics and one more theatrical – fight with each other and fuse themselves in a continuous passage between one and the other.

The double T of the Italian title shows the landscape and atmosphere from which the solo is born: the Night – La NotTe
