Sorry, there are currently no available shows.

Inspired by Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe and Shakespeare's The Storm, dance makers Ginevra Panzetti and Enrico Ticconi create their own island story with dance and traditional Sardinian lullabies. Insel represents the confrontation with the dark sides in yourself, but also the connection with ancestral power and wisdom.

Two castaways are stranded on a desert island. They are flanked by two alter egos dressed in black that begin to overshadow their movements. On this desert island, they encounter and enter into battle with themselves.

The island as the perfect metaphor for isolation. With Insel, Ginevra Panzetti and Enrico Ticconi, counted among Italy's most interesting dance makers, create a state of detachment – an immersion in the deep layers of the self.

A thin strip of sand falls from the sky, like in an hourglass. New ground is literally forming on the stage area. Although at first the castaways seem to care only about themselves and express themselves with force of power, in an interplay with their shadows a shared ritual emerges: from isolation to connection. Is this the rise of a new community?
The sound creation of texts recited in Italian is supported by chants by tenor Gavino Murgia, who specialises in the traditional cantu a tenore, a polyphonic singing technique from Sardinia's pastoral culture. Thus, an ancestral voice that vibrates the earth and sets its temporary inhabitants in motion seems to come from the island itself.

Panzetti and Ticconi create dance steeped in political, historical and philosophical reflection on the symbolism of tangible places. After the garden, the town square and the city, it is now the island's turn. "The castaway's collision with a desert island is what each of us experiences when we dive into ourselves and encounter our dark side."

About Panzetti and Ticconi

Ginevra Panzetti and Enrico Ticconi, based in Berlin and Turin, have been working as a duo since 2008. Their artistic research interlaces dance, performance and visual art. They delve into themes related to the historical connection between communication, violence and power, basing themselves on ancient performances, creating hybrid figures or images between history and reality. They gained international recognition with their choreographic work HarleKing (2018) which, in addition to being presented at some of the most important international festivals, was presented at the European platform AEROWAVES Twenty 19, the New Italian Dance (NID) Platform and by Tanzplatform Deutschland 2020.
