A place in time/Omnia

  • Dance film
  • In the frame of Dance me to the End of… – exercises, distances, proximities

Filmed in the Omnia Hall, the film invites us to a meeting with the future building in which CNDB will carry out its activity – in all its facets: architectural, politico-historical, through the current status quo, through the contemporary bodies of dancers, which, like space, stores historical information.

Following performative logic, presence is set at the juxtaposition between the past and the future. Starting from presence, the authors explore the two directions of time. The bodily layers of the dancers reveal the layers of the Hall, reformulate its structures and atmosphere, and let themselves, in turn, be reformulated.

A place in time / Omnia carries on the scenario imagined by the architect of the building, with hope for a utopian future – all our desires and preconceptions about Omnia Hall, as a place of people and art.

Layers of materiality, layers of history.
Layers of music and layers of dance.
Layers of the past-presence-future.
Dance as discovery, dance for completion…
