What happens when the will has abdicated and the body is guided by the movement itself? When you indulge in the pleasure of getting lost in the vastness and emptiness of space? You go looking for the right positioning to give the body‚ that body of which only the bones remain‚ like tinkling glass.
(...) performance exudes pure physicality‚ mixed with latent soul imploding to its chest. It is emblematic of the transformation required of the human creature‚ of constant change and at any cost‚ the right sense of trying assiduously to inhabit the new space that creeps into our path.

(Critical observation - kilowatt Festival; flowing from the pen of Catherine Meniconi)
(...) Her piece Cantando sulle ossa vibrates with obsessive robotic movements‚ which constantly change in the flailing of the arms and the buckling legs sagging‚ in spasms on the ground and the supine advancing that uses all the space in search of a balance that is found and lost again.
(Il Sole 24 Ore online by Giuseppe di Stefano).
