    Venus Venus is the second fragment of Nicola Galli's choreographic research focused on solar system.
    The astronomical and iconographic imaginary of Venus evokes the approach of man to the forbidding planet Venus, characterized by a volcanic and acid atmosphere.
    Two human figures land on it and introduce a sequence of gestures through the execution – distant as well as meticulous – of some gymnastic and ballet-tradition exercises, drawing vectors and lines. Their presence upsets Venus' atmosphere: the movement of the two strangers is scanned by elements that, falling on the ground, suspend the action and call to order.
    The two figures proceed weaving a sinuous and curvy drawing to achieve a possible quiet. A discharge of water breaks up the illusory harmony, destroying their curiosity and triggering a last wild attempt of defense.
    Once defeated, they contemplate Earth, majestic and central in the celestial panorama, covertly craving to come home.
