Piergiorgio Milano [BE/IT]


Floating aerial choreography

premiere in September 2022

in situ / for beaches, lakes and deep waters

The choreography is a reflection on the fragility of coastal and marine ecosystems and on our relationship with them. The protagonist is the sea: as material and as context. The beach, an offended and too often vulgarized environment, becomes the theater: the sea is the stage, the ocean’s floor the backstage and the shore the proscenium. The sea remains sacred despite Anthropocene, a womb to which the performers are drawn, putting into dance their very human nostalgia for a lost harmony. The music finds the sound of the sea on the strings of a viola. A combination of contemporary dance, acrobatics, aerial and vertical dance.

Piergiorgio Milano  [Be – It]
Choreographer, dancer, acrobat

«My choreographic language is the result of years of research on connecting dance, theater and circus arts. My shows are characterized by strong theatrical aesthetics, which the dance can lean on and develop in full freedom of poetry and virtuosity. I place myself on the line between different arts, categories and disciplines. It’s in trying to go beyond that line that I find the strength that feeds my creative processes. »
