“Cloud” - Show conceived and created by the Italian choreographer and performer, Giovanfrancesco Giannini



“Cloud” - Show conceived and created by the Italian choreographer and performer, Giovanfrancesco Giannini

Along a path made up of digital flows, images and videos, the performer accompanies the audience on a journey through their data archive, in their individual memory. The scenic space opens up to reality, connecting to remote geographies in an authentic media fresco that incorporates and attempts to return all the information: the body becomes the witness and medium of the contents that the database shares following flows of movement that crystallize into images, giving life to a personal choreographic archive.

CLOUD it is a reflection on the politics of images, on the media representation of bodies and the violence against them, and on memory as an archive of data, real and virtual, in motion.

Company Körper
"Company founded in 2003, with regional recognition since 2004 and ministerial since 2014, the Körper company is characterized by the work of production and support for the emergence of young choreographers and young artists from Italy and the Campania Region; above all a work of enhancement of young choreographers residing in the area or who have left the area on a personal journey that has led them beyond the borders of our country. Many young artists who want to express themselves through choreography turn to the company, which directs them and accompanies them to their productions and in the promotion and distribution of shows. A company that works with many different choreographers with the intention of promoting young choreographers and accompanying them towards work and professionalism. Luna Cenere, Nicolas Grimaldi Capitello, Sara Lupoli, Francesco Marilungo, Giovanfrancesco Giannini are some of the young choreographers supported by Körper. The activity of the center, especially of the choreographer Gennaro Cimmino, has a special focus on the culture of the Campania region. He started a trilogy on the meaning of "Neapolitan" which in 2017 made its debut at the Napoli Teatro Festival with the show "Tammurriata" giving life to research on the oldest folk dance in our region. In 2019 he made his debut at the Bellini Theater in Naples with "Vivianesque" a tribute to Raffaele Viviani. The trilogy on Neapolitanism will close with a work on the world of the writer and director Giuseppe Patroni Griffi which will debut in 2023.
