Dewey Dell – Marzo – UK Premiere

admin November 3, 2016 0

An impact crater on a distant planet: the scene of ancient hostilities. This is the eerie setting for a manga-influenced, comic strip drama where battle is stylised, almost ritualistic. And yet there is love.

Dewey Dell The Barbican - London 2017

Since earliest times, March (Marzo) has been the month of war as the winter fades and spring signals a return to the fray.

Protagonists enter the apocalyptic field, twitching and spinning as if in fast-forward mode. There’s a samurai warrior, alien challengers, spirits from the past and something more menacing. Straddling physical theatre and contemporary dance, Marzo has been developed with a wholly original performance style, the uncanny choreography complemented by a discordant, electronic soundtrack and minimal narrative.

From Italy, Dewey Dell’s founders – Agata, Demetrio and Teodora Castellucci and Eugenio Resta – have worked in collaboration with Japanese director Kuro Tanino and visual artist Yuichi Yokoyama, whose costumed figures come straight from a graphic novel.
