[AURORA] a goalball match that turns into theatre, a show about perception, 2015


[“AURORA” is a performative and choreographic practice based on the passing of time and stemming out of a reflection on sporting disciplines in general and, specifically, on the game of Goalball: a sport performed by blind and partially sighted people. This work is the third chapter of a trilogy “Will you still love me tomorrow?”, a project that explores the concepts of resistance, strain and concentration. As Sergio Lo Gatto states in “Una drammaturgia del tempo”: “at the base of each of the three works is the idea of bringing on stage a “quality” of reality obtained not imitating a practice, but transferring (through a progression from work to work) a practice from one context to another.” In this way, Aurora reconnects itself with the two previous chapters of the trilogy like an event with no eyes that follows the rhythm of the action revealing the real nature and meaning of sport where time never corresponds with duration. On the contrary, time shrinks and expands in relation to the subjective sensorial sensation of the performer and of the audience.]
