In this new piece, Marco Berrettini brings together five charismatic performers and a piano, to make them vibrate individually and together—like a living organism—in a choreography with metaphysical stakes. He is also following an avenue of formal research: the possibility of expressing oneself through abstract and repetitive movements, while conveying a real presence, an individuality on stage. Marco Berrettini looks at his pieces in a holistic manner: how do elements such as music, voice and movement interact? What stories do they tell? How do they make our bodies, or parts of our bodies, vibrate? With My Soul Is My Visa, the choreographer—and German ex-champion of disco dance—challenges these questions within a humorous and quirky universe that is entirely his own.
