Four dancers construct a game between reality and fiction that questions the canons of beauty, putting together a sculptural pop piece full of intelligence and humour.
This is a project inspired by The Three Graces, the neoclassical sculpture by Antonio Canova, a universal reference for beauty, proportions and measure. On the stage four dancers construct a game between reality and fiction that questions the canons of beauty. Following the classical music score by Vivaldi and Strauss and the electronic contemporary music of Matmos and Koudiam, Graces weaves a sculptural pop piece that investigates the different tones of an insolent charm that can cancel out all the 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 characterized by elevating imperfections to turn them into arts with a raw, direct, comic style that does not differentiate between dance, theatre and performance.
Silvia Gribaudi is an Italian choreographer, the winner of several internationally prestigious prizes. Her research into the human body and nudism has enabled her to create different performances centred on the expressiveness and identity of bodies, which she has toured in Europe and the rest of the world many times.
Silvia Gribaudi proposes a workshop open to people of all ages with or without knowledge of dance, so that the people attending can discover movement through humour, on 15 March at the Teatre Joventut in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat.
