In Rasp Your Soul, partly a dance piece and partly a choreographed concert, the performer Enrico Ticconi impersonates a mythical or even meta-mythical being, whose every cell emits signals about the radiance – real and fictitious – of human existence. Through his effect on space, he creates a dynamic force field: vocal disruption, slang, whispers and digital echoes/overtones converse with a series of mobile “monuments” and precarious gestures that seem to emanate from the remnants of our digital world. Wild beast or narcissistic sex object, ceremonial creature or digital spectre? Enrico Ticconi keeps switching identities and, deriding the concept of the “real”, he invites us to consider our flesh and bones.
Rasp Your Soul is the opening solo in a series of works under the general title, The Staggered Dances of Beauty, in which the choreographer re-evaluates mythology as a tool of re-examining contemporary issues.
