“What if silver is the color of dancing? What if dancing were nothing but a child, silver coated and unlawfully reproduced?”
In the series “Leafing” visitors are invited to leaf through Caprioli’s thick book of dancing in three thematic shows that change weekly: “Silver”, “Spoons” and “Undercover”. The “Leafing” series will start with “Silver”. 100 silver coats, worn by audience members and performers alike, are distributed and carried around the space. Ghost, alien, carcass – each shape ready to sweep you off your feet. Estranged duets break out in this imaginary moonscape where children and coats find a home for the wicked. A closing film by Mateusz Herczka turns the chill void of silver into an overload of sentiment and colour.
