Careening Weave – A Dance of ­Five Fates

“Careening Weave – A Dance of Five Fates” explores the weaving together of five personalities inhabiting a musical landscape born from the collision of the Baroque and the contemporary. As we follow the journey of the five protagonists, we as a public move in and out of two perspectives, the choreographic dialogue with the French Suites of J.S. Bach as well as with a contemporary soundscape devised by Giorgio de Santis. Along a sequence of episodic events, the performance unfolds as a finely woven web of traces that music and dance leave behind in time and space and in our perception. Five dancers meet in unpredictable and volatile ways, their paths and bodies cross, connect and separate. Their actions and interactions give rise to patterns of behaviour, textures of interpersonal relationships that allow the audience to witness the complexity of the intersecting of these five individual existences. “Careening Weave – A Dance of Five Fates” traces our existential entanglements, makes them tangible in the interplay of the bodies with the music in time and space and ultimately allows us to experience them in their emotional uniqueness as existential traces.
