English and Italian spoken

POZ! is a personal, even highly intimate performative dance solo by the young Italian dancer and choreographer Matteo Sedda (to be seen in Fabre’s Mount Olympus and elsewhere). Here, he portrays the emotional life of an infected being, surging back and forth between incredulity and resignation. Using fragments of text, dance and performance, Matteo Sedda creates an honest universe offering an ode to life in all its colours, from glittering light to frightening darkness.
