The project Corpi Urbani/Urban Bodies consists of several performances – some of which are site specific productions – taking place in different areas of town such as streets, squares, shop windows, natural areas, historical palaces and museums. The main idea is to allow people to experience dance shows for free, and locate them in a familiar environment. A second goal is to explore the art form of contemporary dance, proposing it in a simple and direct way and encourage people to discover its sense of spontaneity and immediate appeal in unusual settings. The “special occasion” value around the project makes dance more accessible and persuade people to perceive their urban surroundings in a different way. Corpi Urbani is supposed to be a community experience, presented to the city and created for it.
