ESPO: SINGOLARE_PLURALE is a project created by Giovanna Rovedo developed and performed together with Michela Silvestrin. The three stages of the residency at Villa Manin have been essential in the creative process for the two dancers, focused not only on the physical aspects and a research into atmospheres and images, but also through the relationship with an involved and engaged audience, which has been constantly present. The participation and gaze of the public has been essential for a project that is based on the dynamics between impulse, exhibition and repetition.

Giovanna Rovedo explains: "I want to take stock of the fact that everyone has their own quantity of emotions waiting to be freed. Using the presentation to the public and the emotion of the scene as a spark of inspiration, I want to find out which of these emotions can easily be shared or given as a gift. I am looking for the reasons why an audience wants to explore the piece and I imagine them in an intimate and shared landscape".

Giovanna Rovedo is a dancer and anthropologist. After graduating from the Accademia Nazionale di Danza in Rome, she studied in New York at the Martha Graham Dance School, with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and in Berlin with Arthur Staldi at Labor Gras.
