New production 2021 Boomerang the illusionists of Dance
RBR Dance Company Illusionistheatre, that for years has been staging artistic projects designed to raise awareness of respect for the environment, presents its new production “Boomerang the Dance’s illusionists”: a dream journey that begins with the appearance of life on earth, the birth of man and which then develops into three different environments but connected to each other by the direct or indirect presence of the human race.
The first picture represents the progressive retreat of the perennial snows: with fluctuating and illusionistic choreography describing the unstoppable melting of the glaciers.
Then we descend into chaotic cities, among the automated everyday life of the human being, homologated and dominated by technology: the skillful use of special backdrops and projections amplify the representation of a humanity trapped in its glass cage.
In the last stage of the journey, the depths of the abyss fill the scene; although in our imagination they may be infinite, they are now saturated with plastics: the dancers, multiplying and disappearing, emulate the marine dimension in its suffering.
Boomerang the Dance’s illusionists, supported by highly hypnotic directorial choices, the masterful use of lights and evocative music, literally capture the viewer on a journey that each of us should undertake to understand how each of our every decision or action, whether conscious or not, correspond to the same and contrary actions, even those we implement in relation to the environment in which we live.
