Francesca Saraullo ‘La Sospesa’
Young choreographer, dancer-performer and visual artist, Francesca moved to Brussels in 2012.
She comes from a long career of dance, choreography and video arts. She is involved in international projects as author and performer. After her studies in the school of fine arts in Brussels in both ISAC and AsEP programs, she began her own personal artistic research. It combines dance, performative installation and video, with a focus on the language of the body.
By concentrating on conscious movement and by the use of imagination, Francesca seeks to break through the limits of gravity, reaching into the open space around her. Her choreography is enriched by other artistic means such as video, sound and visual art. In her dance together with her plastic creativity, Francesca Saraullo seeks for purity of the gesture and the essentiality of a presence between real and virtual. In search of new forms, she observes the world, the human beings and the spaces between the things with curiosity and a pinch of madness!
La Sospesa is a dance (self)-portrait that draws a space of tension where the “baring” of a woman comes out. Suspended between earth and sky, in a timeless space, she goes through different states, sensuality, desire to get up, fragility, lightness and gravity, acceptance. This feminine body crosses the scenographic space going from a mysterious and surreal atmosphere to the raw and naked unveiling of the stage. A series of intimate landscapes interweave to evoke a personal and archaic memory made by images, by sensations and by feelings.
