Shadows and Desires

Isaac Newton formulated the law of inertia in his work Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica and it is known as Newton’s first law. The law states that every object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless compelled to change its state by the action of an external force. Based on Stephen King’s theory taken from physics that “everything is connected to everything”, this law can be applied to the relationship between life and fate. This inertia also affects human life, the events, whether they be good or bad, are controlled by our fate. Much as we may feel that we are the real controllers of our lives, it is just arrogant fantasising. In fact, we are merely shadowing the will of the machinery operating according to the plan of an incomprehensibly gigantic intelligence. All that we get a chance for is to comprehend, understand and interpret the events happening to us. We are not those casting a shadow on the world, we are rather the shadows cast upon the world that follow the course of events helplessly in the delirium of our desires.

Moderato Cantabile

“You are my continuation,
you are me, myself, beneath me.
You. The world has no
different version,
which rests on my heart,
nobody touches me like this.
Only you. You are the most precious shape in the world,
I am at home with you,
you are my home.
I am far away without you,
far away from what I do not know,
but far, far away.
The world is a little dirty away from you,
from the true you.”
(Mariangela Gualtieri)

Moderato Cantabile is about passion, about absence; it evokes emotional life, it attempts to speak about love without fulfilling it, it merely draws the map nestling beneath it.
A room on stage – outside space and time -, which exists according to fixed permanent patterns. The characters arrive in this space, the space of “being elsewhere”, where they leave indelible marks behind themselves: they set out on different paths, in the furrow tracks of which the spaces of freedom can be sensed even though in a rather illusory and volatile form.

(Baby Boy)

“Ourselves, our society and our world are reflected in the arts. As creative artists ourselves, we are also a part of this world. We see, we feel, we form opinions, we experience and we take in. Pain, refugees, oppression, borders, exclusion, nationalism, war and fear created the elements which our production, “Baby Boy” was built on.”

This is the seventh cooperation of the choreographer duo with composer Tom Parkinson, who followed the whole creative process, as he always does. Tom’s music embodies the basic concept of this work with its powerful melodies and powerful rhythm, giving inspiration to Ivgi and Greben.
