White out

Piergiorgio Milano

When mountaineering meets choreography, you realise that these two have more in common than one might think: harmony and movement coordination gives balance, rhythm and endurance when over the cliff. But how can you recreate on a flat stage the emotions that you feel at such height and the dizzying immensity of the mountains?

In White Out, three performers take on this climbing challenge: they want to reach the highest summit, but altitude cast a dizzy spell on them and make them think they want to disappear. Light, snow and clouds join the party to blur the lines even further: space has no meaning, time is suspended.

Where can they take refuge? White Out is a fascinating piece in which our endangered humanity is looking for its great escape.
