Quiet Bang

NICOLO FONTE

« I have been thinking about violence and aggression, in all it’s forms and how to possibly move away from them in communicating, in expression and simply in being.
So I began this creative process wanting to explore a way to move peacefully but not dully, organically but not lacking in dynamic, caringly but not sentimental.
Quiet Bang, the result of a collaborative effort between myself and the extraordinary dancers of LBMC, ultimately is a projection, a vision of life that aspires to strip away the limitations of one’s imposed boundaries and to explore one’s potential, both physical and higher, through boundless reaches and the experience of touch.
Quiet Bang, two extremes, two potential ideas seeking cohesion but not necessarily balance; a physical manifestation of where I am today ».
