We are in a subterranean space, a terrarium of remains and debris. Here, two bodies practise becoming inhabitants of a landscape that turns into cave, cavity, swamp. They rely on the characteristics and intentions of the animal realm, of the plant and fungi kingdom, thus questioning humanity’s centrality.
Nicola Galli (1990) is a choreographer, dancer, and lighting and costume designer who works with body research. He is an artist supported by Tir Danza. With Il mondo altrove: un dialogo gestuale he won the Danza Urbana XL 2021callout.
