Graces

 

Graces is a project inspired by The Three Graces,  sculpture created by Antonio Canova between 1812 and 1817.The work  draws from mythology. Zeus’ three daughters – Euphrosyne, Aglaea and  Thalia – radiated splendour, joy and prosperity. Three male figures take  the stage in a space and time suspended between the human and the  abstract: a place where male and female meet, without roles, and dance  to the rhythm of nature itself.On stage there are three male performers  (Siro Guglielmi, Matteo Marchesi, Andrea Rampazzo) together with the  author Silvia Gribaudi, who likes to define herself as ‘author of the  body’ because her poetics elevates imperfections to an art form with a  direct, cruel and empathetic comic style without any boundaries among  dance, theatre and performing arts.

Over the past ten years,  Silvia Gribaudi has been questioning gender sterotypes, female and male  identities and the concept of virtuosity in dance and daily life,  expanding beyond clichés and appearances.Graces was realised thanks to  the critical, visual and directorial support of Matteo Maffesanti  (director, social theatre operator and videomaker) who followed through  the entire artistic process with Silvia Gri-baudi, with several working  phases involving workshops for local people inspired by the  choreographic material developed in the project.

Gribaudi, Silvia

   

Silvia Gribaudi is an Italian choreographer who also specialises in performing arts in general.
 Since 2004 she has focused her research on the social impact of bodies,  having set at the centre of her choreographic language the comic  element and the relationship between audience and performers.
Award-winner of the Premio Giovane Danza D’Autore with her piece A CORPO LIBERO(2009), finalist at the Premio UBU for best dance show and finalist at the Premio Rete Critica award with R.OSA  (2017), winner of the Premio CollaborAction#4 2018-2019, finalist at  the Premio Rete Critica 2019, winner of the Premio DANZA&DANZA 2019  for best Italian production with the piece GRACES and Premio Histryo Corpo a Corpo 2021.

She has taken part in several artistic research projects, including:
CHOREOROAM (2011), TRIPTYCH (2013), ACT YOUR AGE (2014) – an EU project about active ageing through the art of dance, which inspired the performance WHAT AGE ARE YOU ACTING?, as well as the community project OVER 60; PERFORMING GENDER (2015); CORPO LINKS CLUSTER (2019/2020), where the connection of dance, the mountains, and the mountain community gave life to the site specific project TREKKING COREOGRAFICO (choreographic trekking) and to the piece MONJOUR  (2021), produced by Torinodanza Festival in collaboration with Teatro  Stabile del Veneto and Brussels’s Les Halles de Schaerbeek.

In  2021 she has been a guest choreographer at “Danser Encore, 30 solos  pour 30 danseurs”, a project for the Opéra de Lyon and in June 2023 her  new production will be premiered: GRAND JETÉ, a coproduction by MM  Contemporary Dance Company (IT), La Biennale de Lyon (FR), Théâtre de la  Ville (FR), Rum för Dans (SE), Torinodanza  Festival (IT), International Dance Festival TANEC PRAHA (CZ), Zodiak –  Side Step Festival (FIN) e dal network internazionale Big Pulse Dance  Alliance..

Her  shows have been featured in a number of national and international  festivals and are the result of a creative process that focuses on  dialogue and on the poetic encounter with other artists, dance  companies, and communities.

Plasson, Fabien

Born in 1977, Fabien Plasson is a video director specialized in the field of performing arts (dance , music, etc).

During his studies at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon (joined in 1995) Fabien discovered video art. He was trained by various video artists (Joel Bartoloméo Pascal Nottoli , Eric Duyckaerts , etc).
He first experimented with the creation of installations and cinematic objects.

From 2001 to 2011, he was in charge of Ginger & Fred video Bar’s programming at La Maison de la Danse in Lyon. He discovered the choreographic field and the importance of this medium in the dissemination, mediation and pedagogical approach to dance alongside Charles Picq, who was a brilliant video director and the director of the video department at that time.

Today, Fabien Plasson is the video director at La Maison de la Danse and in charge of the video section of Numeridanse.tv, an online international  video library, and continues his creative activities, making videos of concerts, performances and also creating video sets for live performances.
