Moby Dick

In the foreground lies a dancer with her legs to the left and her upper body to the right. She has braided red hair and are looking down at the floor. In the background to the left sits a dance out of focus next to a bright spotlight. In the background to the right we see the legs and parts of the arms of a person. The picture is dark and light is reflected on the shiny floor. Photo: Polina Ulianova

Moby Dick

In a wordless landscape, we let the stillness carry us forward and wash over us with a deafening silence. We wait. For courage, for something new. For the spark that will make the body’s rhythm explode and then find peace.

Moby Dick is a place and a state of mind. A performance with absolute presence, existing in the borderlands between dance and installation. The piece is created by acclaimed Italian choreographer Chiara Bersani who, during the last couple of years, has gained great success with her solo piece Gentle Unicorn.

Moby Dick premiered at Oriente Occidente Dance Festival in Rovereto, Italy on September 5th 2021.
