Fenix - progetto multimediale di danza contemporanea

Last collaboration between Fondazione Teatro La Fenice and and Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, Fenix ​​is ​​the work of the choreographer of Geneva Foofwa Imobilité and artist Stefano Arienti Mantua (installations).

The elements of Fenix, designed in accordance with the mathematical properties of the 'cyclic numbers' are inspired by the notions of death and resurrection, and transfiguration disappearance, decay and rebirth. The structure of the choreography uses as raw material revolutions, turns and circles, which refer to the notion of cycle, along with all sorts of variations of falls and recoveries, related to the notions of order and a new beginning. A choreographic element will move from one dancer to another, regenerating. The music of Fenix ​​will be produced live on stage by dancers-actors who will play an ancient Chinese wind instrument called the sheng. The instrument, which alludes to the appearance in the form of a phoenix with wings folded, has the ability to reproduce, according to popular legend, the mythical bird's song. The sound of the sheng will be accompanied by the breath and the voice of the dancers, who will work with Precise attention on the breathing cycle. The phoenix, the bird that is reborn from its ashes, is a model for understanding the human and, beyond this, its biology. The contribution of Arienti is to have invented the projections for the curtain for the stage and dance, and other scenic elements on stage and he designed fabrics for the costumes of the dancers. At the entrance of the Teatro La Fenice people are invited to leave comments or drawings in a large visitor's book with many pages designed by the artist. The Phoenix Book is designed as a symbol of a 'place' of knowledge, but is also a way to combine the time of the theatrical art of vision over time. The contribution of Stefano Arienti revolves around the idea of ​​theater knowledge, seen in both senses of the staging of encyclopedic knowledge, referring to the Venice eighteenth-century and the birth of the Encyclopédie, as well as the theater for entertainment.
