To fall with grace
The work depicts the unseen or seen and overlooked processes and effects of human interventions in the underwater environment. A group of six synchronised swimmers perform outside their “natural” environment and interact with the industrial surroundings. The dancers make elaborate moves, through an unnatural choreography, while trying to master their breath control, unable to communicate or coordinate their movement. The project is presented on a stage and screen in the waters behind the island of Giudecca, at the end of Rio de Sant’Eufemia. The audience could access and watch the video either from their own boats or from a platform designed to accommodate spectators without access to a boat.
