CAMPO LARGO// 1 - 30 April 2016 // Movie screening
Matteo Graziano is a director and choreographer for contemporary dance. In the early of May, he collaborated with Istituto Italiano Di Cultura Jakarta (Institut Kebudayaan Italia Jakarta) to had a video dance workshop. His main works are in contemporary dance production, opera, and music theatre while he also been involved in experimental projects, which include participatory formats, architectural and site-specific interventions. Matteo would like to connect with people through this event and to exchange ideas around video dance and architecture. Especially on the relationships between the real body and physical space versus the image of the body and the frame. We watched 10 short films as the result from the participants of video dance residency in Turin, Italy (Campo Largo) - with the total duration: 47 minutes. He looks at his work process from two perspectives. Movement body in a space as a contemporary performance (real body and physical space) and the image of a body and the frame (while he works on the video) In the discussion, we talked about how the body affect the architecture and vice versa; the degree of the movement and its relation to action and reaction; and his choreography research based on somatic discipline. Somatic is a field with body-based. In the movement technique, a performer uses perceptions and body sensor to move rather than space to a body.
