Corpi in Vertigine #2 places dance at the crossroads of art, theater and performance. Since 2010, Grazia Capri has been developing an original body of work focused on movement. Emotions take form in the body and in the space: the poetic expression of a body becomes a screen, and reflects a primordial intimacy.
In modern society, we often find ourselves having to choose between who we really are and who we choose to show to the world. Our nature is stifled, hidden in our deepest depths, causing an existential vertigo, in which we are enveloped by a sense of emptiness and can no longer find our center. Corpi in Vertigine #2 (Bodies in Vertigo #2) is a poetic and intimate journey in search of the self, a forgotten identity. The performance creates a surreal and dreamlike atmosphere, a timeless dimension. It is a succession of images and moods where past, present and future chase each other, taking turns without a logical consequence.
