PROJECT
A reflection about contemporary society, about us and our relationship with power and
the faith we put in it “for a good purpose”.
In a society that is fragile and weakened by events, cataclysms and global pandemics,
there is a too easy tendency of releasing on the the first “savior” that comes at hand,
giving him the power and the responsibility of taking decisions for a collectivity. A
decision we then regret when the predictable epilogue has become unchangeable.
“Right” is characterized by strength and sarcasm and wants to tell a story that we already
know through the language of dance and the contamination of spoken and sung voice.
The composition requires performing abilities and the alternation between acting and
dancing scenes.
In the evolution of the narration, the body with its animal nature will overcome the reason
with growing tension.
Performers will act as in an arena and will fight and fall in their own blood as in a human
slaughter. Everyone will be at the same time a victim, a witness and an executioner.
