“Perfect performance. A true masterpiece”
La Repubblica



Alessandro Sciarroni is a renowned figure in the theatre world; he has been selected for several international research projects and is the winner of a Danza&Danza 2012 award. Presence, interaction, exchange are key ingredients of theatrical acts. The minimum requirements for a performance to exist are a performer and a spectator. With wit and humour, Sciarroni stages a choreography based on a folk dance tradition, the ‘Schuhplatter’, a typical dance from Bavaria and Tyrol, an old courtship dance. But the rules of tradition are subverted; this conceptual experiment distances itself from the context and content of the folk dance it is inspired by. Rhythm, form and repetition become the lenses through which the percussive sequences can be interpreted. Homogeneous series of hand claps and foot stamps give rise to anomalies and variations, whilst effort and exertion seep through the dancers’ impressive physical control and tenacity. The dance evokes images of festivity and martyrdom, joy and cruelty, suggesting unexpected connections between folk tradition and the contemporary world.
