With From now on, Godani created a lightning flash of movement on stage. With the choreographic eruption of symmetries, oppositions and reiterations, dancers become at once a physical body and an overwhelming entity in an unexpected and colourful world of forms. In a landscape outlined by a series of scenes in constant flux, each element motivates the other through their linking: it is connections that transform the moving particles. The choreography is a visual architecture - a construction that seems uncomplicated but has an incredible amount of information within itself. Searching for an unconventional situation in which to challenge the body with ideas, Godani developed in From now on a sophisticated allusion to the geometry of classical dance from a contemporary frame of mind. For this occasion, Kronos Quartet ft. Steve Mackey, Physical Property (1992), offered a musical structure that fits the creation like hand in glove .
