Italy’s Motus Theatre returns to direct and devise Panorama, a new work in collaboration with La MaMa's Great Jones Repertory Company. Contemporary philosopher and feminist, Rosi Braidotti wrote about a “belonging open to Multiplicities” proposing a post-nationalistic identity for all the populations of the world, focusing on the concept of fluid identity and nomad identity. Motus and Great Jones Repertory Company delve into the heart of this issue, interweaving their personal histories of identity, departure, and remembrance to create new existential panoramas in which migration is actually an intrinsic existential condition.
The companies have devised this work together from the present on out, building performance up from interviews, improvisations, and associated research in pursuit of an answer to the core question: how can we move from the dominant force? We the people—to the process of perpetually becoming—we are the other? Panorama is a dynamic and open exploration upon the human need to be in movement, in flux.
Motus Theatre Company
Italy’s provocative and dynamic Motus Theatre Company was founded in 1991 by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò. Motus sculpts its projects with productions wielding great physical and emotional impact and has always anticipated and portrayed some of the harshest contradictions of the present day. Throughout the years, the group has created theatre shows, installations and videos, conducted seminars and workshops, taken part in interdisciplinary festivals. They’ve received numerous acknowledgements, including three UBU Prizes and prestigious special awards for their work. Freethinkers, Motus have performed all over the world.
