In the unusual and evocative surroundings of the Shipyard of the Società di Navigazione del lago di Lugano, Cindy Van Acker presents four of the ten solos that make up her project Shadowpieces (2019-2021).
Van Acker returns to a format that marked her debut on the international scene, dialoguing intimately with each of the performers.
Depth, listening, empathy: these are the themes of a choreography that has been tailored around the way each dancer moves, their particular sensitivity or current concerns. The intense relationship with music is the common motif connecting these unique works, each of which lasts about ten minutes, depending on the length of the excerpts chosen by the interpreters from a musical selection proposed by the choreographer. Every solo has been individually conceived for the dancer interpreting it, expressing their own personal energy, color, expressiveness. The compositional elements have been chosen by the soloists, while Cindy Van Acker has achieved the perfect synthesis between choreography and music.
