is the first episode of Nicola Galli's choreographic research dedicated to solar system, in particular to the planet Jupiter.
The creation is inspired by 2001: A Space Odyssey
directed by Stanley Kubrick and gives thought to the
ancient and indissoluble link between human, time and space. It offers a magnetic and desolate landscape immersed in silence,
micro-polyphonic flows and classical harmonies.
The bodies inscribes the space drawing a network of trajectories that mutate from square to circle: two geometries
related to human proportion in according to Vitruvius thought.
A man dawns from the darkness and moves in a square space that frames him. He soars in the static nature of this tailored
shape, involving a principle of terrestrial order.
A thin and vertical line, projected upward, represents the peak of the angolar movement and introduces three bodies
that draw curves and sinuous shapes, floating towards a celestial direction: the circle.
Jupiter and Beyond
probes the metamorphosis of the shapes, creating a far imaginary that approach
to a comparison with the mysterious human destiny.
