Protest Forms: Memory and Celebration. Public opinion descends upon the demonstrators

As part of the exhibition Feminism in Italian Contemporary Art, Marinella Senatore will present Protest Forms: Memory and Celebration. Public opinion descends upon the demonstrators, a performance interpreted by dancer Paola Lattanzi that celebrates the Japanese butoh dance, founded by choreographer Tatsumi Hijikata in a climate of political clash against the Americanisation of Japan following the Hiroshima tragedy. As an act of resistance and rebellion, a spirit of protest hypnotically emerges from the androgynous dancing figure whose movements fabricate an invisible process of transformation.
