Jacuzzi is a convergence of Amsterdam-based choreographers, who act as a fluid support structure for each other and a host body for a multitude of movement practices and performance related events. At Jacuzzi we gather in order to share, reflect, problematise and imagine new conditions for art production in order to practice and celebrate our enthusiasm for the importance of dance. More info.
Elisa Zuppini has developed an idiosyncratic movement quality and a choreographic aesthetic that develops around the axes of the knees and which became iconic in her own work. This peculiarity derives from a research on movement systems that she started working on during her studies in choreography.
She studied directional logics between body, space and anatomy - which give rise to prismatic figures moving closely and from the floor. She sees this formal outflow as an interweaving of concepts and technical virtuosity which are sourced both from philosophical interests and dance history. In fact, she also drew inspiration from Ballet, in the deconstruction of its verticality and frontality, while maintaining its elongated and circular forms (those understood as axioms in the architectural and sensorial relationship between body and space).
In this intersection between depth and form she outdraws and proposes new imaginative readings on the body, in relation to our current times.
