• Dance & performance

40 min.


I’m a stranger in my own body, in my own thoughts, and a stranger to the tongue in a book improperly read. Projections is what I do spit on, as well as lies and fears.  Mistakes, done and undone. Sometimes I’m what I wish I were. Being a woman, singer, artist, psychotherapist, this makes me visible. By augmenting perception, I listen to all senses, I become a collection of simultaneous things, I have 4 brains and claws. I try to be at ease with all and everything surrounding me, soul resonates with others’ soul. Let the unconsciousness articulate, breathe throughout the flesh. Viscerally impregnated by all previous meetings’ identities. Let my unawareness articulate, breathe through my flesh. Viscerally impregnated by all previous meetings identities.

You, all, others, symbols  within me. in this day-night race, where sense of time gets stranded, i shall leave all behind, die, in order to rebirth, in this day-night race of my resonating soul.

– Valentina De Piante

BAD MAMMA is the third part of the SINGING BODIES’ TRILOGY, a contemporary dance performance in three acts, which encapsulates three choreographers’ sensory and kinesthetic experiences, corelated to the urban environment they dwell in. It came to being throughout certain collective creative and research experiences that did occur both in public and indoors rehearsal precincts.
➀ SPOOKY ACTIONS OF A SPOILED GIRL ( Alexandra Balasoiu, 50’’)
➁ REALITY CHECK (Denis Bolborea, 40’’)
➂ BAD MAMMA (Valentina de Piante, 40’’)

This performance has emerged from our collective history.
Have you ever imagined that every human is the answer to a question someone asked?
