Like a gaze, like a breath. Like someone who moves his hand closer to your soiled lips, and you, foreseeing it, do it ahead. Like the morning light on a summer day. Do you know the feeling when you cannot fall asleep and you go out on the balcony to think? Just like when you succeed in something you were not confident about and hence you think, maybe, it is possible. Perhaps, sometimes, seeing the very same thing is possible.
A scenery of bodies, lights, and stories finds his dimension through a handful of moves, gestures, interpretations, and physicalities. Apparently similar images change from time to time, day after day, creating multiple variations and perspectives of the same subjects. A little world with his own language style, it is a world full of energies that express the relationship among the defined element, the narrator and the dreamer. An increasingly confused look that questions who is driving the vision of the other.
The project was born in 2019 when Camilla Guarino and Giuseppe Comuniello, a sightless dancer, realize their urgent desire of explaining how is describing a dance performance to a blind person. How does Giuseppe perceive the body shapes and figures? And how Camilla can translate and share them? No rules are set; only their complicity, matured over time, allows them to create a new way of communicating through words and moves, enriched from time to time with new gestures and perspectives.
Along the way, they realized they have created a cute and intimate choreographic score, together with many recurrent relational dynamics.This storytelling elaboration brings with it memories and thoughts based on past personal experiences, which, if shared, can influence other’s perspective. Consequently, the transmission of those images cannot be pure, but it gets through some filters which affect how the sightless person will perceive the images.
In the end, also who is describing the reality will end up looking at it more carefully, the perspectives are constantly mistaken, the images link together, there are no guidelines, there is no right or wrong.
