gruppo nanou choses light and color as tools to articulate a three-dimensional space within which to place the performative activity. This is the result of an active dialogue with some architects, curators and designers with whom the company realized a series of meeting about “color becoming space”. At the centre of the stage there are lights, colors and bodies that change through their relationships a new, unstable space subject to continuous mutations. During the Ipercorpo festival, gruppo nanou created a site-specific event to testify to an important part of the path that was nourished, during the days before the festival, by exchanges and confrontations thanks to the collaboration with Daniele Torcellini, Professor of Chromatology for the Fine Arts Academies of Genoa and Verona. Ravenna based gruppo nanou has always been part of the Ipercorpo festival since its first edition and now it is an essential part of it.
