»volto umano« – the human face

cie. toula limnaios

»from the beginning to the end there are strong images that refer to critical situations, social issues and problems of our times, which remain impressed in the memory of the audience. a raw story, narrated with the unmistakable limnaios style, which manages to contrast the violence of actions, the grace and the elegance of her dance.« (n. campanelli, campadidanza.it)

in »volto umano«, violence infiltrates the micro-society of the interpreters, oozes in and out of their bodies. the piece oscillates between the “little mis-deeds” in society, from which the merciless emerges. it embodies just how thin the blanket of civilization is when ethics and morals fall victim to barbarism.
»volto umano« reveals human weakness, thus aiming straight into the heart of the present gradually distancing itself from humanity. it reveals the hubris of humans. the overwhelming dynamics of the modern world can cause everything to change from one moment to the next and for it to plummet into calamity.
when violence permeates our lives – what face will emerge?
