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.
