Komoco / Sofia Nappi

50 minutes

16 €


Elderly people dance happily, dressed in waistcoats and suspenders, with large masks of wrinkled, good-natured faces, which , contrast with the surprising agility of their bodies. Why do we feel like puppets in our lives?
IMA focuses attention on the present moment, with a magnetic dance that is a tribute to life. IMA is a Japanese term that refers to the "present time"; in Hebrew and Aramaic it also means "mother", and refers to the concept of rebirth and renewal.
Komoco is based in Italy and is the result of the collaboration between two sisters who shared a passion for art: Sofia Nappi, choreographer and performer, and Alice Nappi, violinist and composer. Currently, the company that is directed by Sofia, along with Paolo Piancastelli and Adriano Popolo Rubbio, plays a major role in the international contemporary dance scene.

The company offers an after-show discussion.
