PAOLO FOSSA

First Line

First Line is a project coming out from the cooperation of the choreographer and performer Paolo Fossa and the director and playwright Alessandro De Vita. Born as a study about the act of terrorism, their research will focus on the poetic and kinesthetic aspects of violence as an action able to destabilize the inner patterns of a society. Now that the voices of struggle and rebellion are rising up in different places of the world (the Arab Awakening being the most rapresentative example), we all need to wonder about these extemporaneous and quite viral subversions of the

established power and their consequences on the social structures. The project does not mean to be journalistic or didactic. It just aims to perform a poetic and visionary representation of the evolution, crisis and collapse of the “social/physical body” through the macrostructure of an alienating contemporary tragedy.
