Notte, Anna Massoni © Angela Massoni

September 20 + 21, 2023

Les SUBS, Lyon

Inspired by a phrase from The Poetics of Space by French philosopher Gaston Bachelard, “Man is a half-open being”, Anna Massoni proposes in her first solo, Notte, to half-open a door into her personal world. Examining the idea of porosity between the body’s interior and exterior, movement and voice are overlaid constantly, depicting a body caught up in this activity. In this piece, which she describes as a “choreography of detail”, Anna Massoni interlinks gestures, actions and hums in a relationship of dissociation and tension in order to create distances, gaps and appearances.

Notte is programmed as part of the Plateforme 2023.
