ESERCIZI PER UN MANIFESTO POETICO. The debut work of the MINE Collective, “Esercizi per un manifesto poetico” coincides with the founding act of the company. The co-authorial manifesto finds its dance writing in a choreographic practice written by ten hands in which individual breath and unison interpenetrate and in which the choral and synchronic weaving of space and bodies becomes inspiration for a collective language and an evocative poetics. Repetition, stubborn determination, powerful and structured stage action, as an instrument of shared writing and able to generate interactions and ignite correspondences. The movement gives life to a unique body that reflects on the ability to go through change and the passage of time together. Exercises for a poetic manifesto investigates the coexistence of a rigorous choreographic writing and an open and vibrant emotional temperature that plays in a post-modern hic et nunc.
COLLETTIVO MINE. MINE was born from the artistic encounter between Francesco Saverio Cavaliere, Siro Guglielmi, Fabio Novembrini, Roberta Racis and Silvia Sisto. MINE is a collective experiment of horizontal creation and choreographic writing by ten hands, which aims to carry out a research work focused on the sharing of practices, experimentation and languages. Esercizi per un manifesto poetico, winner of the 2019 edition of DNA Appunti Coreografici marks the beginning of their artistic collaboration. The same project is selected for NID New Italian Dance Platform 2022 and Aerowaves twenty22 Artist. In 2020 they debut the choreographic project Corpi Elettrici, in collaboration with Gender Bender Festival and the School of Electronic Music of the G.B. Martini Conservatory of Bologna.
