Die Soloarbeit spielt mit dem Genre des Reality-TV (dem Zeigen spontaner Handlungen von Menschen in ihrem Alltag) und dem TED-Talk. Storytelling wird als Kompositionselement verwendet, während sich die Arbeit in Echtzeit neu formt. Choreographie bedeutet heute mit vielen Feldern gleichzeitig zu experimentieren. Im Zusammenspiel von Tanz und gesprochener Sprache entsteht ein komplexes Gewebe verschiedener Möglichkeiten. Ein Stück, das nicht choreographiert sondern nur performt werden kann. Eine Arbeit, die die Zuschauenden in Partizipierende verwandelt, sie aufnimmt und willkommen heißt. Die Zuschauenden werden in die Frage warum, wie und wann Dinge in der Performance stattfinden mit einbezogen. Das Yo, das sich unentwegt neu denkt und aufbaut und der Schmerz, der als Kostüm gehandhabt wird, als Atemzug, als Vorhang, als unbeugsame Tatsache des Lebens.

This experimental, interactive solo work intentionally plays with the genre of Reality TV, (as it shows the unscripted actions of everyday people), and popular TED talk lectures. Using storytelling as an element of composition, the work is reshaped in real-time.

Choreographing today is experimenting with many fields simultaneously. This is what currently makes sense to my vision. JSR will integrate two solos in the structure of the work. "La fascinante deconstruccion de mi Camino", and "Portrait of an Antihero". Both created in 2018. The piece can't be choreographed, it can only be performed.

The interplay between dance and spoken word will create a complex graph of multiple possibilities. A work that turns the audience into participants, while hosting them and engaging them in the question why, how and when events take place during the performance.

The Yo that rethinks and rebuilds itself permanently and the pain handled as costume, as a breathe, a curtain, an indomitable circumstance of life.

Santiago Gervasoni is a classical pianist, jazz pianist, harpsichord player, beatboxer, composer and improviser. Since he started at 6, he has always been interested in the modernity of the different musical languages, how their differences but especially their similarities can enrich each other. He studied simultaneously classic and jazz in Nantes, before moving to Paris to deepen his classical piano studies for two years with Rena Shereshevskaya. At the age of twenty he moved to Berlin to pursue his studies at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler, where he obtained his Bachelor in 2019. He is now starting a Master in baroque music on harpsichord at the Universität der Künste Berlin. His artistic channel is mainly about deepening his understanding of every musical language he has the chance to discover, in order to find their common points and mix them together, breaking stereotypes of elitism and putting them on a same level of importance and legitimacy.
