performance running time: 60′


Premiere exclusive for Italy

The awareness of not being able to create a choreography by starting from the Dostoevskij novel was the key to something completely new. No text, just pure dance. The incarnation of movement from within the words. The silent voices, the cries and the moans, the murmurs and the sighs: everything,…absolutely everything ..becomes movement. And thus coming from within, it moves and displaces the body. The framework of the entire piece is built upon the power of the voice.
