This dance theater piece takes audiences on a stroll through the contradictions of Roman daily life punctuated by the echoes of Pier Paolo Pasolini, one of the greatest poets and intellectuals of contemporary Italy (and to whom In Scena! 2015 is dedicated, on the 40th anniversary of his death).
SYNOPSIS – Rome: a city of “exclusivity” and “exclusion;” a city that first praises you and then abandons you. The ideal place to give meaning to a person’s burning solitude, and perhaps the place to finally be free of it. Broken Dances is a stroll through daily life in Rome, inspired by one of the greatest Italian poets and intellectuals: Pasolini.
Benedetta Capanna – Choreographer and dancer, Benedetta collaborates with Excursus Cultural Association for dance production, supported by MIBACT.
