live arts cultures festival 2017
art residency / dance performance with valentina milan

Sapir-Whorf hypotesis shows the principle of  linguistic relativity, which claims that the structure of a language directly influences its speakers’ cognition.

The first collaboration with the dancer Valentina Milan explores the relationship between body and sound through a linguistic metaphor. The work in progress investigates then the evolution of every kind of human interaction. The show was produced and performed during an art residency in the framework of ‘Live Arts Cultures’ festival.
