Body Horizons. Art/Dance/Virtual Reality

An innovative encounter between dance and visual arts, placing artworks and performance side by side, from the collaboration between Fondazione Palazzo Magnani and Fondazione Nazionale della Danza-Aterballetto. At Palazzo da Mosto, via Mari 7.

November 12, 2021 - January 16, 2022

The project combines visual, performing arts and technology in a continuous exchange: art, with the works by thirteen contemporary artists; dance, with the six Micro Dances created by five international choreographers, and technology, with virtual and immersive instruments that will allow visitors to continue to attend the performances - staged live only on opening and closing days - for the entire duration of the exhibition, allowing them to encounter both the physicality of the dancers and the material of art in a completely new way and triggering a new relationship with space.

The exhibition itinerary, curated by Marina Dacci, develops in eight halls of the historic Palazzo da Mosto, connecting danced installations with about thirty works of contemporary art by the thirteen artists invited: Leonardo Anker Vandal, Bianco-Valente (Giovanna Bianco and Pino Valente), Fabrizio Cotognini, Antonio Fiorentino, Silvia Giambrone, Gianluca Malgeri, Matteo Montani, Mustafa Sabbagh, Vincenzo Schillaci, Namsal Siedlecki, Sissi and Giovanni Termini.
Their works, by vocation and assonances, create an open dialogue with the six Micro Dances by the five choreographers: Saul Daniele Ardillo, Ina Lesnanowski, Philippe Kratz, Angelin Preljocai and Diego Tortelli. These are performances lasting a few minutes, for one, two or three performers, created by the general and programming director of Fondazione Nazionale della Danza-Aterballetto, Gigi Cristoforetti.
