Episodio 6. Armento
After being selected by the Big Pulse Dance Alliance with the project Le Stagioni Invisibili as one of the best 8 European outdoor projects 2021, Fabrizio Favale from 2022 has invented a unique path for outdoor spaces: The Rose Alien Tour - Performance cycle on the road.
The project consists of the journey of a small group of dancers who cross our cities and even unknown places, appearing in each location for a short period of time without changing anything around them, like peaceful and evanescent alien creatures.
This series of performances on the road is a tribute to all those forms of existence different from ours, to those presences that appear to our eyes as aliens, existing and non-existent at the same time. They are all animals and plants. The minerals and the glaciers… But it is also the foreigner and the different. They form the fabric of the landscape, but in the landscape they merge until they disappear. They are light and evanescent presences like those of animals, camouflaged forms where the boundary between the body and the surrounding is always uncertain. They are impossible plant intelligences. It is the foreigner who is here and elsewhere at the same time. It is the different that we do not understand.
