About this performance

“Twister” is a project of Aura Dance Theater and Fabbrica Europa Festival.

The performance was based on the game “Twister”, which has given a new look at the concepts of physicality and interpersonal space many times in different cultures.
The ideas of physicality and the body as an interacting territory are questioned. Choreography acts as a language that binds social experiences together, bringing together a temporary community where bodies become a continuation of each performer’s human relationships, social dynamics, cultural products, and life experiences.
As two groups of performers begin a Twister party, Salvo Lombardo interweaves choreographies based on connections, micro-narratives gleaned from their experiences, sharing personal memories, both movement and biographical, that are relived through improvisation and repetition.
