A POSTO, eleven years after its first performance, brings back on stage three girls who, having met to enjoy their picnic basket, find themselves exploring the room in search of something that escapes their gaze. From the lightness of the country scene everything begins to slide in small chimes towards a more surreal and absurd dimension; towards a dimension suspended in time that holds the protagonists and in which everything begins to escape them. In this multifaceted representation the protagonists discover that the purpose of that exploration is significantly the exploration itself. And as in a world made of mirrors and memories, the finale leads the spectator to reread with amazement all the small gestures made by the dancers during the performance. With “A posto”, Ambra Senatore continues the choreographic project undertaken with Passo, winner of the Equilibrio Prize of the Fondazione Musica per Roma in 2009, in which the dramaturgy is conceived as an action rather than a narration and dance merges with theatrical fiction and everyday life.
