Adaptive bodies

music - dance - interactive scene

Corpus 2.0 è una libera indagine sul corpo come mezzo espressivo, decontestualizzato da una specifica narrazione, e inserito in un contesto intermediale, ma sempre dispensatore di moti interiori, di azioni e reazioni, creatore di suggestioni fisiche come vuole l'indirizzo stilistico di Bonavita e di Lupone.
In Corpus 2.0 Bonavita and Lupone treat the human body freely as a means of expression, appearing in a cross-disciplinary context, without being the subject of a specific narration. However the body remains a dispenser of inner motions, actions and reactions and a creator of physical suggestions.
The interactive scene is designed by the sculptress Licia Galizia as a dynamic room where music, choreography and electronic technologies act in a symbiotic way that underlines at the same time the three-dimensionality of bodies and movement, and the emotional suggestions of the music, immaterial by its nature; emphasizing the expressive possibilities in an abstract and surreal performance.
Corpus 2.0 is the result of the fruitful artistic collaboration between the choreographer Ricky Bonavita and the composer Michelangelo Lupone started in 2014. Together the two artists created several productions among the activities of Compagnia Excursus and CRM - Centro Ricerche Musicali, and cooperating with AND - Accademia Nazionale Danza and Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia they also promoted a wider project that allowed young choreographers and composers to create and collaborate in a professional context.
