Virgilio Sieni/Accademia sull’arte del gesto (I)

Uno sguardo che si concede al corpo

A new chapter of Virgilio Sieni’s piece premiers at Uovo. The work involves eleven girls from the Academy on the art of gesture. The Academy is
committed to researching contemporary artistic modes and the significance of the body and dance. Taking as a starting point Jacopo Pontormo’s
Deposition, the young performers study the sense of support, exploring how the position and weight of the body change through the use of external
elements and contact with other bodies.
