Asterion’s Rooms is an online maze, inhabited by the minotaur arising from combinations of single bodies.
Novissimo Bestiario has always investigated anthropomorphic combinations that are inserted in its collection of ‘monsters’ (from the Latin monstrum, “portent”, “prodigy”, which can take on ambivalent nuances). These ‘monsters’ and their dances will appear live from video chat windows.
Novissimo Bestiario is a ‘protean’ project that, since 2007, has developed participatory authorship pathways in collaboration with many artists. From dance to multimedia installation, from experimental theater to site-specific performances, from costume and masks creation to the collaboration with visual and sound artists: we are interested in being in dialogue with the contemporary ‘imagery’ and new ‘monsters’ (from Latin ‘monstrum’: prodigy, portent, which can take on ambivalent nuances).

The work, for its high aesthetic quality and its visual and diegetic compactness, takes the audience by the hand and drags it into its own imagery, in the exploration of new and constructive mental meanderings.
The heart of the performance is the continuous cross-reference of meaning between container and content, which is the real engine of reflection suggested by Fedra Boscaro on the female body.
…there couldn’t be a more suitable performance for the start of the Kinodromo project.
Body mapping, the art of video mapping applied to the human body: Arosio and Boscaro’s projections transform the performer’s body into surprising imaginary beings, contemporary creatures that investigate the relationship between the human body and the imagined body.
Chosen by the Artistic Committee of IK
A work in progress that investigates “imaginary beings”, contextualizing them into the present times through the codes of the performing arts.
