SICILIANO CONTEMPORARY BALLET, ORIKBEM
"Orikbem" is a six dancers piece, described by the choreographer Salvatore Siciliano as a self-reflection on the lifestyle and emotional world of the young generation living in Berlin. Inspired by Carlo Collodi's novel "Pinocchio", the alleged educational intent of the children's book serves as a literary model to illustrate the challenges and complexities faced by all the individuals embracing the path of self- discovery among the countless possibilities the social landscape of big cities has to offer.
In "Orikbem" darkness rules the scenery of the performance. Sarcastic gestures permeate the choreography. Movements are executed with accuracy and maximum of rapidity, resembling the shrink-ed temporal structure of the "big city life". In this space-time is a relative factor until the moment each individual stops and consciously decides to which extent is willing to be part of that landscape.
