With ±, Ali Moini invites us to discover a series of visual, music and danced scenes. A dream-like work, which invents a new mythology inspired by the work and the universe of the poet, novelist and filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini.
Using song and dance, Ali Moini’s piece ± tells the stories of invented gods and goddesses, moving through fantastical constellations. At the center of the action, a costume-set changes throughout the duration of the piece. Constantly moving, the object becomes a full-fledged character, accompanying the words, generating and sometimes constricting the movements of the choreographer. The structure and the dancer enegage in dialogue, fight, come together, shaping ten tableaux, each of which has a different atmosphere. Using different languages, words and movements, Ali Moini asks us to ask ourselves; why are we here? In the theatre? Outside? This is an adventurous voyage, combined with a radical introspection.
