LXXXI Festival of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino


Re-Mark is the site-specific creation of dance and multimedia by Chinese choreographer Sang Jijia. A first world performance, it opens the XXV edition of the Festival Fabbrica Europa at the Stazione Leopolda. Three years after the successful As If To Nothing put on in collaboration with the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino,  the choreographer – who has been a dancer and assistant choreographer to the legendary William Forsythe – works together with eight young dancers selected for the occasion. As in the 2014 work, Jijia investigates the relationship between body, spatiality and memory through a project which is both strong yet refined and many-facetted in the languages it brings into play. The live shots show the dancers from varying viewpoints and create a play of multiple perspectives at times glimpsed again in the choreography, with different sequences that are developed one alongside the other through a system of associations and gestural geographies, which turn from a single into a choral movement for the on-looker.

Re-Mark is a Fondazione Fabbrica Europa multimedia production within Maggio Fiorentino.
