Frankfurt Dresden Dance Company - Jacopo Godani

Frankfurt Dresden Dance Company ::Ultimatum Part II

ULTIMATUM PART II is the second part of the full evening program ULTIMATUM. In addition to ULTIMATUM PART II, ​​the pieces THE SMALL INFINITE and UNIT IN REACTION also belong to this three-part program.

In ULTIMATUM the kingdom of reality is suspended when a supposedly familiar setting is altered by the unexpected. 

This full evening creation is a journey through a futuristic landscape in which creatures - that experiment with what seem newly acquired body parts - inhabit the stage while guiding us through passages and different scenes.

Godani conceives environments and geographies that contain hidden foundations. He leaves space for the audience to explore an unmapped territory in which choreography moves between different planes: the intangible qualities of the material world with established existing objects, and the accepted purpose of such objects, as well as their alterations. 

In this Terra incognita, there is a threshold in which dancers embody the intersection of choreography and environment: space becomes organic. This whole reterritorialization of the stage -the repurposing of the landscape- encompasses the dance itself and, moreover, a vision of a future.
