We dive back again into the Historical Archives to bring more of its treasures up to the surface. The Dance Department pursues its course with Virgilio Sieni who curated the exhibition Riapparizioni. Corpi, gesti, sguardi dai palcoscenici della Biennale. Album dal 1934 al 1976, and now presents The Idea of the Body. Merce Cunningham, Steve Paxton, Julian Beck, Meredith Monk and Simone Forti from the Archives of the Biennale 1960 - 1976.
The quality of the material distinguishes these exhibitions as particularly relevant research opportunities, which highlight significant moments in the history of dance, many of which have been forerunners or sources of inspiration for the generations after them.
To us, this is again the most vibrant and vital use that can be made of the Archives, to bring them to light in small parts, yet dense with meaning, essential elements for understanding and orienting ourselves in the present.
The ASAC is increasingly validating its role as a centre of research.
