salvo lombardo

Salvo Lombardo, together with Irene Russolillo and Davide Valrosso for the two-year period 2017-2018, has been appointed associated artist of Oriente Occidente Dance Festival in order to undertake a path of production and support of the activities of these young people, guaranteeing them both the presentation of the works within the event and the international launch of the productions.

Salvo Lombardo, guest of CID in April and August/September 2017, works on two different projects: the show Present continuous and the installation for Mart Reappearances.
Those who attended his show Casual Bystanders in the last edition of Oriente Occidente will remember that the Sicilian artist loves to investigate the relationship between perception and movement.
That work - of movement and evocative video projections - was the result of two years of research around everyday gestures, the study of urban situations first recorded as work notes and then developed in choreographic sequences.
From there also starts the new project Present continuous: the close relationship between everyday life, memory, perception and movement and the observation of the present through the factor that determines its essence: time.
From the compositional point of view the author has tried, together with his interpreters, to re-elaborate with his own experience, with his own biographical point of view, predetermined and rather simple choreographic sequences.
The resulting gestures are minimal, not at all emphatic, they are built by accumulation, repetition of small gestures, real 'documents' of our daily life.
The performance was presented at the Auditorium Melotti in Rovereto on September 4 during Oriente Occidente Dance Festival.
