Over the last century, the body of the artist and their actions became central to live art practice, gradually finding their own lexicon within the performance vocabulary. Performance, which has established itself as a non-intermittent, tangible artistic expression of the reflections of conceptual art, has become, over time, the medium through which generations of artists have explored and experimented with the link between the performative dimension and the language of theatre, music, film, the body and nature.
Dance performance affects the visible and evokes the invisible. The physical body and the sensitive body of the performer are directly involved, together with those of the audience. The result is a unique, capable and significant organism. We will go back to Merce Cunningham’s new perspective and to the fluidity of Trisha Brown’s gesture, we will experience Anna Halprin’s planetary reach, embrace Jérôme Bel’s normal diversity and Akram Khan & Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s pluralism of identity, experience Alessandro Sciarroni’s becoming and taste the attractive eclecticism of Lady Gaga and Francesco Vezzoli.
