supernova

SUPERNOVA, is the performing arts review/happening that we curate in collaboration with Associazione Santarcangelo dei Teatri and the Comune of Rimini with the support of the Regione Emilia-Romagna.

The itinerary is made up of Movements-hybridized actions that touch on various aspects of the performing arts-this is not a theatrical program tout-court, because it is evident today that the porous boundaries between the arts clamor to break out of the stereotypical boxes in which the creativity of so many artistic realities, both historical and emerging, often risk being harnessed.
Let us therefore imagine outside the logic of the “season,” the “dance review” or “theater” placed in dedicated venues-let us step out of this temporal recurrence to concentrate actions in a period and in places that are expanded and extremely significant in the imagination of the citizens and citizens of Rimini.

La supernova è un’esplosione stellare di enorme potenza,
con la sua luce può illuminare
ciò che altrimenti resterebbe al buio.

A supernova is a stellar explosion of enormous power,
with its light it can illuminate
what would otherwise remain in darkness.

2024 Edition

Supernova, a performing arts festival curated by Motus with the collaboration of Paola Granato, returns to Rimini from the 17th to the 21st of April

This second movement – once again realised in collaboration with the Municipality of Rimini and the Association Santarcangelo dei Teatri and with the support of the Emilia-Romagna region – is an intersecting space between heterogeneous languages, a performing art happening that digs deep into the ancestral roots of different cultures, focusing on their intermingling and welcoming a series of performances that have a bizarre and shared ritual dynamic, an archaic dimension removed from current trends. While the Galli Theatre will remain the beating heart of Supernova, the festival will also inhabit other places in the city, such as the City Museum, the Borgo Marina neighbourhood, Casa Madiba and the harbour area.

Indeed, the sea is another common thread in Supernova’s themes: a suggestion that became a cause for reflection on an increasingly bleak present that makes us fear for the future, between winds of war and many human beings killed by blind European policies that let helpless people drown in the Mediterranean Sea. A space for reflecting and condemning that uses the “Mediterranean question” as a crucial lens to understand many of the socio-political processes of the present. The Mediterranean is an archive, according to the vision of Ian Chambers and Marta Cariello, who speak of it as the space of a present that cannot be hidden because everything always resurfaces, from dead people to objects dropped in it because of neglect or as an offence. The sea returns them, though, almost always elsewhere, on another shore, sometimes far away.

 

“The sea, then, becomes a place of memories, of time flowing, an aquatic matrix that washes, transforms, excavates, uproots and transplants everything. The gaze is turned to those who are gone and to the union between life and death, the here and now and the elsewhere. The open mouth/heart on this edition’s billboard emerges from a tension not to be silent, from the absence of fear of speaking out and keeping memory alive. We wish for some things to never happen again, but History, or better, violence and intolerance keep repeating themselves, supported by new war technologies”, say Daniela Nicolò and Enrico Casagrande (Motus) while narrating the genesis of the 2024 project. Nicolò and Casagrande continue: “We recently commemorated the carnage that took place in Cutro one year ago, and the 94 victims are still awaiting justice. Our “democracy” drowned with them, and the government keeps criminalising migrants and exacerbates the persecution of ONGs (and others). We want Supernova to be a celebration but also a space for thought, discussion and denunciation of issues that artists can no longer ignore.”
