EMERGENCY EXIT is a dance and videomapping piece with a performer and a puppet to relate, in a visual way, the different roles of women at the time contemporary.

 

The relationship with another imaginary and virtual will be the beginning of a journey in the memory of the body that dances and questions itself, as well as roles, identities, memories, desires. What is this emergency exit? Where will it take us?

 

«Emergency Exit» suggests a thought: if men follow the Peter Pan myth, perhaps women «fall» into the Alice myth, debating between the will to respect the gender rules and patterns and the curiosity to discover an alternate wonderland. This piece is a bit the story of a grown-up Alice who can’t help but lie down the eastern hole from time to time.

The struggle between comfort and discomfort, desire and non-desire, the urgent and the important emerges in the dance-theater piece 'Emergency exit' [...] The show is a mix between contemporary dance and physical theater, in whose intersection is the research carried out by the Italian artist who has lived in Spain for ten years, whose dance has evolved and responds to a style 'contaminated' both by different disciplines and by the culture of her native country and her experience in Madrid, where has lived, and Catalonia, where he currently resides.

“Being the owner of listening to the desires and needs that I have, having the freedom to follow them and if some do not coincide with those of society, defend them.” This is one of the main reflections of a piece whose title refers to the search for the emergency exit to escape from decision-making and go easy. The proposal alludes to how difficult it is to be free while remaining whole and the fear of not following the roles that society usually sets, in relation to which you know more or less how the story ends, while when you try to construct a new role you do not. You know where it's going to take you.
