Grec. Festival de Barcelona

Fast Forward 2009

Out of Italy

Scene + Music + Festivals

For the second year in a row, the Grec Festival and the CCCB present Fast Forward, a festival that explores new work that is currently brewing in the performing arts, and unearthing material from key creative centres around the planet.

This group of artists presents the history of the path of water, a personal reflection on the extraordinary beauty and force of this element in the form of music, image, voice and body. Lights, holographic images and a sample of real-time sounds transform the stage into a great magic lantern.

Performer: Silvia Calderoni
Visual design: Francesco Borghesi
Sound: Enrico Casagrande and Roberto Pozzi
Props: Giancarlo Bianchini / Arto-Zat

The city, with its sounds and voices, takes to the stage with a show that its creators call "not very theatrical". So what can we expect to see on stage? It all may seem to be getting out of hand, but in the end the big meltdown gives way to a new state of affairs, a new map of the world.

Choreography, direction and interpretation
Teodora Castellucci
Original music: Demetrio Castellucci
Lighting: Eugenio Resta
Creation of plastic elements: Chiara Bocchini
Wardrobe: Gabriella Battistini and Carmen Castellucci

Half fairy tale, half science fiction, this piece by Teodora Castellucci is full of spectacularly dense, precise movements, with a choreography that presents a disturbing reflection on the metamorphosis, fruit and plenitude produced by violence and death.

La più piccola distanza and La timidezza delle ossa

La timidezza della ossa

With the collaboration of Milo Adami

In La più piccola distanza, moving bodies create a great living pentagram, an overall geometry of our everyday reality. La timidezza della ossa is a technical and visual exercise in expression and revelation in which perception merges with the real state of affairs.

Tentativi di volo: performance for a darkened room


Direction and optical camera: Alessandro Panzavolta
Performers: Roberta Galassini, Sara Masotti, Valentina Parmigiani and Angela Longo
Lighting: Francesco Antonelli
Objects on stage: Roberta Galassini, Sara Masotti and Francesco Antonelli
Sound: Alessandro Panzavolta

It all happens in a darkened room with space for just 20 spectators. Like at first light, as we emerge from sleep, what we see confuses us, and we are not quite sure if what is going on around us belongs to the world of dreams or is part of reality.

Àrebours 100 and Pietro

Daniele Albanese - Compagnia STALK

Direction and dance: Daniele Albanese

Albanese presents two shows. The first is a finished piece, the second was runner-up in the 2008 Equilibrio Prize and is a study for a future production of longer duration. The artist concentrates on the combination of opposites and highlights the concepts of repetition and interruption, and the relation between movement, meaning, space and memory.

This activity is part of Grec. Festival de Barcelona
