Implying reciprocal interaction, Soliloquio a due, surges from the convergent fascination of a dancer and an illustrator for the human body. It tells the story of a body/ persona as subject and object of experience, care and practice. A story recounted by illustrated, multiforms personifications, dissipating into metaphor and symbol, matching disturbing the body on stage.  A reflection on the body, its internal and external perception, its plurality, its representations, the visible layers that compose it.

 The exhibition , an interaction of visual images - photography, drawing, video -, sound and performative action, exposes the body  in relationship with its own represenations/ reproductions/ interpretations. The Live performance action Fallingdownupstairs arises in interaction with the various representations and with the live score of experimental electronic sonorities pertaining the perception of the body.

Going slowly up and downstairs. Walking or rolling, adapt to the presence of other bodies on the way. Unforseen a priori, the choreographic action reveals the reasoning of the body through slowness, repetition, adaptation, and subtle changes of physical states. The work speaks of relationship/ transformation; body before an encounter and bodies during an encounter. Identity and otherness refer to each other while a new body is born, the result of adaptation.

This work recounts one of the possible versions of the story of the God Money. Sent to Earth to facilitate exchanges among human beings, Money takes pleasure in playing with their weaknesses and, taking control of their will, he will become increasingly more powerful...

Using an ironic and symbolic language, this story leads us into an imaginary but familiar universe. The piece makes use of the allegorical power of myth to celebrate humanity, without illusions, without shame, recognizing that human been can be as brilliant and sensitive as mean and vulgar.

The Aim of our Inquest is:

to see how much cultural and social patterning influences the dancers' movements, individual

presence and the quality of their interaction.

to see how much influence the application of physics and anatomical principles will have on the

cultural and social patterning of the dancers

to see what remains of these attributes or qualities after an exploratory choreographic process

focussing on the study and application of: kinetic energy, inertia, torque, momentum vectors and

gravitational forces.

MADE IN AFRICA ( more or less..)

Performance for two dancers and one camera

Concept: Sara Parisi, Francesca Pedullà, Antoine Renouard

Dance: Sara Parisi, Francesca Pedullà

Camera: Antoine Renouard

With the support of: Association Sonagnon (Cotonou), Spazio Saravà (Genova), Centre Choréographique Multicorps (Cotonou).


The performance is an uncommon hybrid between “cinema live” and performance, in which the choreography is structured around functional rather than aesthetic physical attitudes and gestures, revealing a body shaped by and reflecting on its environmental, cultural and social conditioning.

Live filmed sequences fragment reality, highlight the uselessness of a single point of view, augment and complete the expressiveness of the performing bodies that become landscape in the service of the camera.
