“Rizomi”, residency project curated by Simonetta Pusceddu (Tersicorea) in tandem with the Municipality of Carloforte

Crossings in the territory of Carloforte and the island of San Pietro, a community made up of only 6 thousand inhabitants, with the aim of highlighting the   peculiarity of “an island within an island”. which is part of the circuit of "The most beautiful villages in Italy" and  preserves the language and culture of the founders, the families of fishermen originally from Pegli, and coming from the Tunisian island of Tabarka (where they resided from the 16th century). In 1738, the Tabarchinis obtained permission from King Carlo Emanuele III to colonize the island of San Pietro, uninhabited and called 'degli sparrowhawks' since the time of the Phoenician settlement (8th century BC), followed by the Punic one, with temple and necropolis . The same fishermen, 40 years later, also founded Calasetta on the facing island of Sant'Antioco.

Project "Universal Zoology" 

PTo achieve a deep and intimate connection with this imaginary Nature, the author recreates the natural and fantastic habitat of beings, to propose both an internal, emotional and imaginative experience and a more visual and picturesque aspect of the work.” The artist composes impossible yet authentic plots. An artistic proposal of extraordinary impact that transforms the dancer and actress into the icon of Shiva, the Hindu deity of destruction, also known by the name of Natarajà, or the "Lord of the dancers". Level dance, theatrical invention, circus art, puppetry and acrobatics. Author, dancer, choreographer and director of flawless dance, grappling with daring and spectacular evolutions, the young artist also adds an innate theatrical presence. In his expressive window with the "Zoology" project, a bestiary of horrid and fantastic wonders is experienced within a dance made of harmonic fluency, ringing figures with reckless aerial movements. Ambiguous looks and mimicry suggest characters from improvised stories, part of a dance theater that touches the sky.

5 to 21 December  2022 CHEY JURADO GILLES
Project  “Raíz”

THEJurado Giles' choreographic writing concept takes shape from his previous projects dealing with the four primary elements of nature: water, earth, fire and air.  Raíz • (Por Parte De Mare) is centered on the earth element, RAIZ root described and interpreted in terms of urban dance. An element, like motion, can be liquid and adaptable, solid like rock, gaseous and volatile like vapor. Root that generates life, root of creation, root of the universe.  The ecological theme is present through the approach to some of the current problems affecting the environment. The topic covered in this work aims to highlight the intellectual concern for a relationship that is probably as old as human rationality. It is about the relationship of man (that is, of society, of culture) with the environment that surrounds him (understanding the earth, nature, the environment, etc.), seen through contemporary dance and non-verbal language._cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_
