DANCE ON DISPLAY | MM Contemporary Dance Company dancing “Extended” by Camilla Monga and “Round Trip” by Roberto Tedesco for Arte Sella

ENG | Dance on Display is our ongoing feature intended to be looked at, browsed through, and frequently revisited. Communicating dance through images is not just above conveying a narrative. It is also an art in itself, smoothing and curving time; allowing us access to the past, to what has already occurred, in an “eternal return of the same”, frozen in an infinite frame. To see through someone else’s eyes that which we have not ourselves yet seen.

Riccardo Panozzo has been entrusted with the story in images of some of the performances that we have watched on your behalf. Here is the photo-gallery of two shows: “Extended” by Camilla Monga and “Round Trip” by Roberto Tedesco. Both were staged in Arte Sella’s Vegetal Cathedral on 11th September 2022 for OperaEstate Danza.

We have also included choreographer Camilla Monga’s thoughts on her own performance, annotations that she generously shared with ABCDance.

ITA | Dance on Display è una rubrica creata per essere guardata, sfogliata e riguardata ancora. Raccontare la danza per immagini non è solo una delle narrazioni possibili. È anche un’arte, che leviga e piega il tempo; che ci permette di accedere al passato, al già stato, in un “eterno ritorno dell’uguale” congelato in uno scatto infinito. Per rivedere con gli occhi degli altri quello che i nostri non hanno visto ancora. Abbiamo scelto di affidare a Riccardo Panozzo il racconto per immagini di alcuni degli spettacoli che abbiamo visto per voi. Qui la galleria fotografica delle performance“Extended” di Camilla Monga e “Round Trip” di Roberto Tedesco andate in scena nella cattedrale vegetale di Arte Sella lo scorso 11 settembre 2022 per OperaEstate Danza. Pubblichiamo anche le note autografe della coreografa Camilla Monga al suo spettacolo, note che ha generosamente condiviso con Abcdance.

ENG | Federica Furlani’s pieces contain quotations from two environmentalist composers: Brian Eno and Raymond Murray Schafer. Of the latter, one can hear him intoning: “We are responsible about the tuning of world”.

By this River is one of Brian Eno’s tracks from 1977, preceding his foray into ambient music with entirely instrumental production. The lyrics are about disorientation caused by a flooding river, in other words an imminent natural disaster that the singer says he observes without worrying about the consequences… Hypnotised by the flowing water, he is fascinated by time that seems to be suspended…

Federica Furlani’s is a contemporary take on ambient music’s sound-scapes, and carries on the message of the two aforementioned musicians who had set ambient music in motion, eliciting the dancers to let themselves be led by the evocative and meditative musical moods, with a time that belongs to nature. A slower cadence where the repetition and rhythm of the seasons is a form of eternal change, unlike the tempo associated with our own everyday lives; far more frenetic, chaotic and altogether distressing.

Camilla Monga

 

ITA | I brani di Federica Furlani contengono le citazioni di due compositori ambientalisti: Brian Eno e Raymond Murray Schafer. Di quest’ultimo si ascolta una sua voce registrata che dice: ” We are responsible about the tuning of world”.

“By this River” è una canzone di Brian Eno, composta nel 1977, prima della sua svolta totalmente strumentale legata all’ambient music. Il testo parla di un disorientamento provocato da un fiume in piena, ovvero un pericolo imminente e un evento naturale che il cantante dice di osservare senza preoccuparsi delle conseguenze. Ipnotizzato dallo scorrere dell’acqua è affascinato da un tempo che sembra sospendersi.

La musica di Federica Furlani è la versione contemporanea dell’ambient music, e porta avanti il messaggio di due musicisti che hanno fatto la storia dell’ambient music, invitando i danzatori a lasciarsi condurre dalle atmosfere musicali evocative e meditabonde, legate ad un tempo che appartiene alla natura. Un tempo lento dove la ripetizione e il ritmo delle stagioni è sempre una forma di cambiamento, diversamente dal tempo legato alla quotidianità, molto più frenetico, caotico e angosciante.

Camilla Monga
