Both in the choreographic trend and in the musical structure, from Beethoven’s Die Grosse Fuge, to Rihm’s intermittence, the limit appears as an experience of encroachment, freedom, but also of vulnerability, which mobilizes the agreement perspectives and relationship among bodies, evoking a renewed configuration in the relationship between individual and community.


It is a very fertile, creative ground the one which Simona Bertozzi investigates to build this new work with very young interpreters. According to her words the game represents: limitation of time and space, freedom within the limits of the rules, seriousness and severity in playing a role, immersion in the process, detachment from the result of the action.

ILINX – don’t stop the dance

Ten years later, the opportunity to work a re-arrangement of the piece has allowed me (…) a possible re-actualization but, above all, has deployed an unprecedented reflection on the solitude of the performer and of his playful universe.
