BE FESTIVAL 2017 July 4th – 8th Be Festival

40.000 centimetri quadrati by Claudia Catarzi (Italy, 30 min)

Paring her movements down to the essential, Claudia Catarzi finds possibilities in a restricted space. This piece’s action takes place in a small, enclosed square, spot-lit in a corner of the stage. Positioned within it, Claudia executes a poised, carefully staged piece of dance; a patient exploration of the boundaries she’s confined within, the audience is witness to her own discovery of her body’s possibilities. Giving herself such tight, constricting borders, it’s captivating seeing her realise her potential inside them. Receiving accolades for previous solo shows Qui, ora and Sul punto, Claudia Catarzi has carved out her own distinct approach to dance.
