Dafne e Apollo



Choreography and direction: Giovanni Zappulla
Dancer: Annachiara Trigili and Giovanni Zappulla
Music: Giuseppe Rizzo
Interactive video: Petra Tombini
Duration: 30 minutes


This play, based on the myth of Apollo and Daphne, re-proposes the archetypes of the couple's relationship, leading to an awareness of the mechanisms of falling in love and rejection and creates a mirror of the consciousness in people watching the performance. For greater dramaturgical depth of the characters, the choreographer has subjected the protagonists to a sort of psychoanalysis of the couple.
The play articulates several levels of representation: it investigates the relationship between man and woman and that one between Apollo and Daphne; it communicates what mith characters comunicate and what the myth also refers at a deep level to the psyche of the artists who represent the scene; the artists become the medium of a powerful synthesis that involves the spectator in a way that differs from the relationship the audience is usually allowed to have with the piece of art. 
An experience of senses, of mind and “of soul”. The sound universe that accompanies the dancers is the result of innovative research which employs experimental technologies through the capture and digital reworking of sound.
The scenography, virtual and interactive, is created extemporaneously during the performance.
The two dancers, the musician and the visual artist work in sensitive complicity.
