Aura - Moreno Perna

In Puglia, the land from his grandmother, magic is still alive. Moreno goes back to a spiritual perception of the universe beyond the rational: the body is seen as a vessel of the aura, and movement as the language of the spirit.

WHEN: 5 - 15 Fringe Festival

WHERE: de Brakke Grond

A Shamanistic-Techno Ritual of Dance

In AURA, the ecstatic dance creates a charged atmosphere. Moreno Perna and Evgenia Rubanova perform a Shamanistic-Techno Ritual that stimulates the audience to open their senses and enable catharsis. The auras of the dancers and of the audience connect. A feeling of magic, of communion arises.

For AURA, Moreno Perna collaborates with Amsterdam based Techno music label Immaterial.Archives (CYB and Elisa Batti) and with dancer Evgenia Rubanova, to create a powerful dance duet.
