La Pelanda – Teatro 1
Born from a dialogue between choreographer Annamaria Ajmone and musician Alberto Ricca\Bienoise, TO BE BANNED FROM ROME investigates the web’s virtual spaces, inhabited by people that share the same passions and obsessions. The subject of this investigation is the ambivalent effect that the web exerts over people that use it as an instrument to build a clique of ideal contacts around them.
While Alberto‘s music rebuilds the state of attentive hypnosis experienced scrolling down a page on a screen and generates a ceaseless yet dense flux of informations, Annamaria constantly transforms the space around her and the volume of her body, through movement, Giulia Pastore’s light design and Jules Goldsmith’s spaces and costumes. Physical and ideal geographies are distorted, bodies are warped, our reality is changed.
Annamaria Ajmone is a dancer and choreographer. Graduated in Italian Letterature, she studied dancing at Civica Scuola di Teatro Paolo Grassi, Milano. Herworks are presented in contemporary dance and theatre festivals, museums, art gallery and in venus not originally meant for performance in Italy, Europe, Asia, Africa and Usa. She won the prize “Best young Italian Performer 2015”. She is one of the organizers of Nobody’s Business – Italy.
