What is Anomaly and what is Perfection?
Can beauty and imperfection become one?
The Dancing Satyr - devoid of arms and a leg, with eyes of white alabaster - dances and keeps dancing despite all its imperfections! The Hellenistic statue inspired choreographer Nunzio Impellizzeri to ask himself how these imperfections can generate so much beauty.
Its beauty does not reflect Classical perfection, but rather the dynamic, illusionistic Baroque compositions that are re-emerging in daily life.
We exist in a present wherein the perception of beauty is in constant flux; in CORPO BAROCCO the choreographer places the body and its expressions - as natural beauty - as the central focus.
In CORPO BAROCCO, the dancers embody a journey in which the defect, the anomaly, and the exception - key concepts in Baroque art - become synonymous with beauty and poetry.
