On 4 August, the Italian Cultural Institute in Mexico City will host a performance by Italian dancer Gennaro Lauro, an event organised within the framework of the International Contemporary Dance Festival of Mexico City – FIDCDMX.
Lauro will present a new choreography titled “Mondo”. “Mondo – the artist explains – means the Earth but also hopscotch and denotes the opposite of unearthly. This research arises from the observation of what I would define as the supremacy of the outcome”. And it represents “the resistance of a child playing hopscotch in a courtyard. The ever-changing pureness arising from the continuous act of self-sculpting; the totality of facts and not of things.”
At present, Gennaro Lauro – who has danced in the world’s most prestigious theatres – is working at new creative project, ZugZwang, in association with Elisabetta Lauro. Among other things, the Italian dancer has also participated in the cinematographic projects of Arnold Pasquier and Jérôme Walter Gueguen.
