Perch Arts is pleased to present Cavadoras at the Ringcross Centre.
Cavadoras is a performance collective based between Berlin and Naples committed to the study of instant composition, poetry and sound. The name refers to excavators/miners, because the collective search for ways to communicate the imaginative potential of the underground.
In 'Eine halbe Treppe Tiefer'/ 'Half a step deeper' two dancers, a performance poet and a musician use handheld torches in an otherwise dark space. In this game of light and darkness they expose different spaces and degrees of intimacy while the musician modulates a self-built device that translates light frequencies into sound. Inside the oscillating landscape, the collective body’s task is to communicate the urgency of physical poetry making.
Martina Gambardella (dancer, choreographer, IT)
