In 2021 the Factory will accompany some creative directions of Simona Bertozzi, Alice Bariselli, Giuseppe Vincent Giampino, Lucia Guarino, Donatella Morrone, Giulio Petrucci and Jari Boldrini, Arianna Rodeghiero, Aristide Rontini and Daniele Salvitto.
The cultural association Nexus, founded and directed by the choreographer and dancer Simona Bertozzi, has been investing for several years in the support of authors with consolidated experience (including Bertozzi herself), emerging choreographers and young collaborators, in order to create a small community of active subjects in the understanding and dissemination of the languages of the body and its artistic and scenic resonances, in cultural, social and ethical/aesthetic growth: this horizon consolidates and defines the activity of Nexus Factory, a body supporting dance that in 2021 welcomes the artistic projects of Simona Bertozzi, Alice Bariselli, Giuseppe Vincent Giampino (with the shows Extended Symmetry and Virtual2), Lucia Guarino, Donatella Morrone, Giulio Petrucci and Jari Boldrini, Arianna Rodeghiero, Aristide Rontini and Daniele Salvitto.
“For several years Nexus has been supporting the work of emerging and experienced choreographers, with multiple actions of collaboration and mentoring, support, organization and co-production” explains Simona Bertozzi “Since 2020 this substantial part of Nexus’ activities has been consolidated in the birth of Nexus Factory, a polyphonic organism of presences and multifaceted authorship that direct their path in the field of contemporary dance and performance research. Even in the great diversity of signs and poetics of these authors, they are all united by a dimension of thought and by a will to adhere to the contemporary creative horizon that welcomes the complexity and the ever-changing dimension attributed to the body”.
“The choice of the choreographers of Nexus Factory” concludes the choreographer “is not made on the basis of age parameters, but on the sharing of intentions and project adherence. For this reason, there are authors under 35 as well as more mature emerging artists and already consolidated paths. It is precisely this attention to the process of interlocution and artistic intention, in consonance with the openness and criticality of the language of performance today, that distinguishes the community gathered around the territory of Nexus, to its becoming a multiform action in the panorama of national and international dance”.
