Dancer and performer Marianna Andrigo and multimedia artist and sound performerAldo Aliprandi have been collaborating since 2009. Their oeuvre and artistic research intertwine various performative languages, deepening the relationship between body movement and sound-motion. Andrigo & Aliprandi's live performances are mainly conceived site-specific, often in places characterized by the full verticality and the consequent shiver of vertigo that it produces. In their reference landscape, they move between philosophy, theatre, sound and movement experimentation by investigating an aesthetic that falls in love with detail and silence, as well with an entropic dynamic energy moved by emotions as enlightenment in the creative process. Their work favors shifting from comfort zones to places unknown yet — those invisible places where the performer needs to stand on the alert to trigger the creative act.
As facilitators, they propose workshops dedicated to practices that enhance listening, resistance and precision in movement, nourishing the artists' individual poetics inside a choral and collaborative dimension.
In 2010 they founded Vertical waves project dedicated to vertical dance performances.
Vertical dance uses the wall as a floor, the performer is perpendicular to the vertical plane. Detached from the ground, we are allowed to explore the total void. The performer finds new orientations and feels the balance of body parts. Dance and acrobatics mix in choreographic writing, creating rhythms and atmospheres that best fit the specificity of the event. Their performances have been presented at dance festivals and street artists, large public events and private events, in Italy and abroad. verticalwavesproject.com
