Brain Thinking Energy
This project, developed for the “Midsummer Festival of Cremona” is a joint collaboration between the Brainhaus Project – art group of Parma – and the Teatro Danza association of Cremona. The result of this combination is an original choreography created by Paola Posa accompanied by a video projection (lenght about five minutes) conceived by Matteo Ferretti.
Eleven young female dancers will became the focus of this video expression of Brainhaus. The show will start with the formation of three groups, symbols of time steps, past, present and future, thus identifying the memories, will and hopes.
The starting focus of this video is the contemporary man’s inner disequilibrium: the separation between his mental state and his energy. A condition that is likely to drift man towards an isolated apathy. But by this stage, tank to the strength of the collective consciousness, man kicks off an individual’s rebirth, breaks down his barriers of the individualism and projecting himself in a common social dimension thanks to the vision of a better future.
The brain art piace is the symbolic catalyst of this path of consciousness, moved through the representative elements of the show. So, for example, all of the body of the dancers will move together as many solar panels oriented towards their generating source; another dance step will repeat the dances of the Masai warriors, symbol of the perfect symbiosis of Man with the Earth. In the end, the frantic movements of the dancers symbolize the brain synapses, in the act of releasing creative energy, looking for human and nature connections.
The video is a rhythmic and visual support to the dance. For a start with a traits and hinted outlines, follow images that progressively show the same structure of the brain art piece, through items such as water, earth, fire and air; these four basic elements it will shape up until obtain a full evidence of the brain form.
