METAMORPHOSIS!individual (2013)

A Youth Dance Project

In METAMORPHOSIS!individual Emanuele Soavi collaborates with young people from four different countries – who themselves are part of a metamorphosis towards the adult world – and develops images for our changing society: moving and still, dancing and producing installations, far away from and close to reality.

With this interdisciplinary dance project Soavi and his team unite international educative institutions, museums and artists, enabling especially young artists and audiences to participate in creative processes. Along the way they also try to define how socially relevant contemporary dance still is. For several months they have been working with 13 dancers of ‚AGORA coaching project‘ (Reggio Emilia/Italy), two circus students from the ‘Codarts’ academy (Rotterdam/Netherlands) and 14 dance students of ‚Institut del Teatre‘ (Barcelona/Spain) in order to create three individual projects.

In Cologne those artists then worked together with students from the cultural youth organization  ‘kultcrossing’ in order to develop a final presentation consisting of individual sections which were performed like that in Cologne only. The Römisch-Germanisches Museum and its ‘inhabitants’ thus experienced their very own metamorphosis through this strange and vibrant ‘collection’.
