This project takes its inspiration from Antonio Canova's neo-classical sculpture The Three Graces, a universal benchmark for beauty, proportions and measure. Four dancers on stage construct a game between reality and fiction that questions the canons of beauty. Following the classical music scores of Vivaldi and Strauss and the electronica and contemporary music of Matmos and Koudlam, Graces carves out a sculptural pop work that investigates the different shades of an insolent charm that does away with all standards of beauty.
Italian choreographer and performer Silvia Gribaudi questions gender stereotypes, identities and the concept of virtuosity in dance, going beyond clichés and appearances. Gribaudi's work is noted for elevating imperfections and turning them into arts in a cruel, direct and comical style that makes no distinction between dance, theatre and performance.
Silvia Gribaudi is an Italian choreographer and performer, a recipient of several prestigious international awards. Her research on the human body and nudity has enabled her to create various performances, centred on the expressiveness and identity of the bodies she has gone on stage with, on numerous occasions in Europe and the rest of the world. She presented her work for the first time in Barcelona in 2019, with her piece R.OSA, which was also performed in Sala Hiroshima.
La company will offer a chat with the performers after 25 March play.
