Dopo il grande successo di WAY OUT, la prima di „IN.QUIETA ROOMS“ va in scena il 10 febbraio al Theater am Gleis in Winterthur, in Svizzera.

After the great success of the dance performance „WAY OUT“, the new creation „IN.QUIETA ROOMS“ by Nunzio Impellizzeri celebrates premiere on 10th February 2017 at Theater am Gleis in Winterthur, Switzerland. 

Cosa accade quando una relazione sprofonda nella routine ed i desideri più profondi rimangono insoddisfatti? IN.QUIETA ROOMS mostra una coppia vittima di un falso modo di vivere e in cerca della propria fortuna al di fuori di sè. Visioni e realtà si mescolano e portano la relazione a perdere l'equilibrio. Vivono allo stesso tempo sensazioni di simbiosi e di repulsione e sempre più si aggrovigliano in una prigione che non ha vie di fuga.

What happens when a relationship decays into a meager routine and inner desires remain unfulfilled? “IN.QUIETA ROOMS” displays a couple, which is victim of a falsified version of life. They look for their luck outside of themselves. Image and reality mingle and bring their relationship out of balance. They live symbiosis and rejection at the same time and more and more they become entangled in a seemingly insoluble captivity.

Cosa c'è dietro l'irrequietezza di questo periodo storico? E' il fatto che non riusciamo a condividere gli uni con gli altri i nostri pensieri più privati?
IN.QUIETA ROOMS si riferisce alle due stanze in cui vivono Quieta e suo marito. Entrambe reprimono l'espressione dei loro desideri più profondi facendo svilire il loro rapporto ad una misera routine. Idee distorte sulla vita ed una grande confusione sulla realtà della vita portano la coppia in una situazione senza via d'uscita. In questa sua ultima creazione il coreografo italiano Nunzio Impellizzeri mostra il suo racconto attraverso un'arte drammatica oscura ed emozionale e scene stilisticamente affascinanti.

Is the real reason behind the restlessness of our current era due to the fact that we cannot share our private thoughts with one another?
IN.QUIETA ROOMS refers to the two rooms in which Quieta and her husband live. Both suppress the expression of their inner desires, and their relationship decays into a meager routine. Distorted ideas about life, and the confusion of appearance with reality lead the couple into a seemingly dead-end situation. In his latest creation, the choreographer Nunzio Impellizzeri guides the focus of his storytelling between obscure dramatic art and emotional, stylistically fascinating scenes.

Original music from Selma Mutal

Le musiche di Selma Mutal sono originali, create apposta per lo spettacolo di Nunzio Impellizzeri.

Between the internationally renowned composer and musician Selma Mutal from Paris and Nunzio Impellizzeri developed a unique artistic synthesis. Her work for IN QUIETA ROOMS is an original music commission exclusively written for the creation’s performance.

About the choreographer Nunzio Impellizzeri

Nunzio Impellizzeri was born 1980 in Acireale, Sicily and presently lives in Zurich.
The vast dance aesthetics and the pictorial language of Nunzio Impellizzeri has been not unnoticed over the previous years: numerous performances und a dance film award in 2016 made him an international recognized choreographer.

The dance short film „QUIET... DISQUIET / Quieta... Inquietudine“ made it out of 264 films to the top at the Online-competition 60secondsdance in Finland. The prize was awarded on 10th April 2016 in Helsinki at the Loikka dance film festival.
In the same year Nunzio Impellizzeri was invited by Zurich Landesmuseum to create a choreography for the opening of the new building.
With the creation „#Il_prete_rosso“ for the dancers of the BA/Contemporary Dance - Zurich Hochschule der Künste, he gave an important contribution to the Swiss dance. With the work “WAY OUT” Nunzio Impellizzeri toured with his company at the Skorohod Swiss Week in St. Petersburg, Russia and at Freier Tanz im Delta in Mannheim, Germany.

Visual Arts decisively influence the choreographic work of Nunzio Impellizzeri. After his studies in Art, with specialization in painting, sculpture and costume, dance was the peak of his artistic training. Nunzio is simultaneously a choreographer, costume designer and scene designer for many of his works, which are characterised by an extreme attention to detail.
Nunzio's productions are born from his personal observation of human existence and social contexts. He wishes to lead the spectator to reflect and question social phenomena. Intricate movement patterns are impregnated with an intense physicality to convey a clear dramaturgy.
