Rosella Pellicciotti’s work, choreographed together with Fjorald Doci, is a reflection on this idea of waiting that embodies an expectation. The performance has a temporal structure that begins with the expectation of the spectators to be able to enter and see it. In fact, only a limited number of people can enter at a time, and the performance will be repeated 4 times. Furthermore, the action is divided into three moments that bring the performer and the spectator back to the same starting point. As if there had been no journey, as if the time spent together had rolled up on itself bringing everyone back to the initial moment. As if, that expectation of the performance had not produced only a nostalgia for the future. Rosella’s clothing also shifts us into another physical situation. A situation of intimacy that brings us eternally back to the starting position.
