Il Corpo Dentro
Monday 7 October 2019, at 6 pm and 8.30 pm 
In the frame of Festival ARTONOV


The Boghossian Foundation welcomes the ARTONOV Festival for its opening night, a tribute to the Bauhaus, marking the 100th anniversary of birth of the Weimar-born movement.

Conceived by costume designer Sonia Biacchi, choreographer Atsushi Takenouchi and musician Hiroko Komiya, Il Corpo Dentro mixes butoh dance, Bauhaus design and music. With their differing aesthetic approaches but similar philosophies, they deliver a totally new type of show to the Villa Empain. The original Bauhaus-style costumes, loaned by the Centro Teatrale di Ricerca (Venice), inspired by Oskar Schlemmer’s triadic ballet and worn by dancer Atsushi Takenouchi, create a special sense of space within which they construct a veritable architecture of the body.

The ARTONOV Festival was founded in 2015 and is inspired by the international movement of Art Nouveau, both for its philosophy and for its implementation. Its objective is to generate a convergence between the performing arts, such as music, dance, theatre, fashion and visual arts, promoting interdisciplinary collaboration. Its 5th edition takes place from 7 to 13 October 2019 with the theme L’intuition du geste.
