| Synopsis

While merging and intertwining with nature, three young girls create a metaphorical and visionary narrative of their present condition and their projections towards the future. Through their lightness, disorientation, vitality and strength, they embark on an choreographic journey facing high and low tides, turbulence and contradictions, calm and turmoil. Guided by absurd questions, the oranges reflect the path of the protagonists in their delicate passage to adulthood and guide us in a poetic reflection on our lives.

| Biography

Silvia Giordano was born in the province of Udine on 21 July 1988, trained as a dancer and specialized in choreography at the Codarts University of the Arts and at the Fontys School for the performing Arts in the Netherlands while holding a PhD in Management and Development of Cultural Heritage. In parallel, she worked as a researcher and author, and as an assistant and associate director in opera houses such as Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Grand Théâtre de Tours, Arena di Verona. Her choreographies were staged at Guangzhou Opera House, Teatro Real in Madrid, Teatro de la Maestranza in Seville and at Teatro la Fenice in Venice. In 2020 she is among the three emerging international choreographers selected by Venice Biennale Dance under the direction of Marie Chouinard, where she premiered her creation Tremendous Hop. Her latest work, “Fresh oranges into the ocean,” won the Theodor Rawyler Prize 2021 and became a short movie. Her research deals with practicing intuition in the choreographic practice and she navigates between controlled craftsmanship and playful responsiveness from visual scores. She moves beyond divisions and across disciplines, combining writing, dance and opera, storytelling and cinema, paradoxes and reality.
