In a world rife with fault lines, tension and conflict, where does Man stand? What does Man do? the renowned Italian Compagnia Zappalà Danza, makes its debut appearance in Singapore with Caino e Abele #1 (Corpo a Corpo), to present the titular story of Cain and Abel as an allegorical warning against the plight of humanity in contemporary conflicts. Performed through a novel blend of dance and boxing, the work promises a visceral, moving experience, making this a show not to be missed!

Compagnia Zappalà Danza is one of the most important dance companies in Italy with over thirty shows all over the world. For 30 years Roberto Zappalà has been telling the artistic vivacity of the South of Italy through his powerful and poetic movement. His residency center in Catania (Sicily), named Scenario Pubblico, is one of the four National Dance Production Centers recognised by the Italian Ministry of Culture.

* With post-show discussion

Grey Space is a new three-year initiative by cont.act Contemporary Dance Festival 2022: Breathing ground that seeks to create a meaningful meeting point for dance artists from Southeast Asia, Asia and from Europe such as the Italian dancer and choreographer, Annamaria Ajmone, who will dance in the performance of Residency 1 entitled “Dreams and Death: Connections over Space” together with other Asian dancers from Thailand, Vietnam and Hong Kong.

Annamaria Ajmone holds a bachelor’s degree in Modern Literature and she also studied at the Civica Scuola di Teatro Paolo Grassi in Milan. She finds that the body, as a malleable and changeable material, is capable of transforming spaces into places, is at the core of her research. Her works were presented in various dance, theatre and performing arts festivals, museum, art galleries and non conventional places, in Europe, Asia, North Africa and the United States among others. Annamaria coordinates Nobody’s Business for Italy, an open source platform for the sharing of artistic practices, and she is currently an associated artist of Triennale Milano Teatro.
