Sweet Tyranny

Based on iconic choreographies of musical films from the disco era (70s and 80s), this piece portrays an analogy between dance as ecstasy and evasion and dance as work and profession within a palindromic structure which works as a distorting mirror that enlarges and twists this relationship to make us stop and think about our own professional and existential reality.

In the first part, zenithal light “avoids” screen’s positions, and acts as a ceiling closing the space because of the staggered lighting bars. In the second part, the same matrix works in a different way, drawing patterns and evolutions according to the choreography.
