Unleashing ghosts from urban darkness

by Alessandro Carboni

Production | Formati Sensibili 2018-2020

Unleashing Ghosts From Urban Darkness combines installative dimension and performance practices where the body is used as a cartographic tool. Starting from EM Tools . embodied map tools, a choreographic method conceived by Alessandro Carboni, a group of performers are involved in a choreographic creation  that focuses on capturing and collecting forms, situations, urban events along a predefined itinerary in order to create corporal maps and choreographic scores, according to the four basic principles of EM Tools: 1. Observation, 2. Capture - mapping the space through corporal actions, 3. Extraction - selective reenactment of the action in a studio, 4. Transmission - corporal map/choreographic score.

The project aims to create a series of corporal maps in different location in the world that identify interferences, dissonances, elements of continuity/discontinuity of the urban space in order to reveal its internal conflicts and ambiguity.
