Noli me tangere

Evocative and powerful, a sophisticated minimal performance for incarnate sound and sounding bodies. A physical score generated through the use of a sensitive sound environment applied to the peroformance.

What the press wrote

“Courageous, vulnerable, risk taking. Neapolitan Gabriella Riccio, is a river in full”
Elisabetta Testa on TuttoDanza

“In Riccio’s gaze, the echo of Pina Bausch’s dance-theatre is felt. This poetic proximity to the German artist’s visionary nature allows her to achieve a delicate balance between invention and consciousness; a dramaturgical movement in which she never fails the reflection on the being on stage of the body, in the infinite of space and time” Antonio Greco on Kajak a Philosophical Journey

“here the quotations become explicit references to the works of Francis Bacon and Bill Viola, in particular in Body of Light, so as to stratify the references and widen the reading plans”
Noemi Pittaluga on Exibart in Arteatro editor Piersandra De Matteo

“In times of scenic writing and new dramaturgies of the body, the experiment proposed by Noli me tangere … represents an intriguing signal launched to the current paths of theatrical research. A complex and seductive score”
Stefano de Stefano on il Corriere del Mezzogiorno
