Trigger – Annamaria Ajmone

The Karnaf Granovsky Hall, Friday Numvember 30, 12:00

Written and performed by Annamaria Ajmone Music by Palm Wine Production CAB 008 With the support of Regione Toscana and MiBACT Co-production Cango/ Umano – Cantieri Internazionali Sui Linguaggi Del Corpo e Della Danza (International Sites for Dance the Languages of the Body) In collaboration with Teatro della Toscana

Trigger is a movable system, that organises itself differently according to the location where it’s being hosted. The system reshapes the geometry of the spaces and, vice versa, the space itself transforms the performance action.

The choreographic score, developing in the inside and outside of the perimeter of a geometrical shape inscribed in the venue, is constituted of pre-established units of movement, which are arranged with one another in instantaneous ways. The audience is seated along the sides of the geometrical shape, so as to share the scenic space with the performance.

Trigger is a personal exploration that, for a limited period of time, aims at transforming a space into a “place”. This becomes a shelter, a crossing point and the nest of a body that, in a state of perpetual listening, amplifies the spaces which are internal and external to itself.

Trigger is part of the project ‘arcipelago /pratiche di abitazione temporanea’ (practices of temporary inhabitancy) a series of actions assembled and experienced in non-conventional spaces.
