Collection Particulière was born from a reflection on the skin as an organ and a place in itself, and from an approach to the body from its surfaces. This reflection blended research on internal perception, on the skin, on body surfaces, and a questioning on performance, on reversal from the body point of view. The title conjures up reversal, a universe that no longer has anything in common with narration. It plays on the singular and the plural: “collection-particulière”.
Reflection on the surfaces around the body, first of all: the ground, bearing, support; led me to propose a flat, horizontal surface that splits the body space and the stage space in two. This line highlights my axes of symmetry and it is here that the play on body splitting enters the scene. It is a way of reviewing the body, where this line creates an attraction, an axis through which certain things appear. It is a line that cuts and heals, that duplicates and unites.
When I explored this space split by a horizontal line, I discovered two complementary yet different qualities. First of all, holding on, using all the surfaces – maximum grip – and secondly, being suspended, abandoning oneself, no tension, the easiness with which a suspended body can be mobile. It is the idea of letting go.

D'Urso, Maria Donata
Born in Catania, Maria Donata D'Urso studied architecture and contemporary dance in Rome. She studied at Merce Cunningham Studio and the Nikolais-Murray Louis Dance Company.
Since 1988 she lives in Paris where she follows a training in Chinese energy and works among others with Marco Berrettini, Christian Rizzo, Hubert Colas, Paco Decina, Jean Gaudin, Francesca Lattuada, Arnold Pasquier, Wolf Ka. In 1999, she created Pezzo 0, outdoor installation, inspired by the meeting with Laurent Goldring.
In 2004, she formed the structure, DisOrienta, to develop her personal projects: minimalist solos, where the usual spatial components are interrogated and reinvented. His attention is focused on the limit places, absence / presence, inside / outside and the ambiguous surfaces, those of the skin, those touched by the look.
She then begins a poetic and composite project, which she calls the Triptych of the skin. After Pezzo 0 (due) will follow Private Collection and its translucent table, Lapsus is its circular scenography. His latest creation Strata.2 extends this enigmatic journey into the world of bodies.
Maria Donata D'Urso is a laureate at Villa Kujoyama, Kyoto, Japan in 2012.
