LAVANDA, 2017

← Back/Indietro

By Angelica Bollettinari & Margherita Elliot

 

Enter the room with decisiveness.
Do a short beautiful detailed dance about nothing
ending in an open fourth position on the floor.

Shake and pulse to a rhythm, whilst trying to keep the focus and attention out, to the space and to others.

Do an elephant walk and move with it towards a wall.
Make yourself be one with the wall, be curious, let your weight sink and stay. 

 

Hug someone.

(de-floating or melting)
Lie on the floor (no one lies on the ground anymore)

          Head and tail. Testa coda

 

Place yourself in the middle of the room.
Improvise.
Whenever you find a gesture or a move which you recognise has been passed on to you
perform a ritualistic movement routine based on the idea of cleaning, cleansing, washing, womanhood and memory. RITO - LAVARE 

 

See others. See things. Follow a flow, pause.

End with the awareness that this could go on forever
And find your way out of the room.

1977 - Lavanda
una danza
M.A.

  • detersione - pulizia
  •      entrare in uno spazio vuoto
  •                                  essere livido (bluastro) “livere”
  •     comunica ma non parla
  •            fortemente aromatica: il suo sapore è come il suo odore. 
  •                 rimane pesante sulla lingua, persistente e lentamente intossicante
  •      è come la più elegante delle signore
