The means of contemporary dance make it possible to joke very seriously about anything one wishes to target. Silvia Gribaudi has a talent for irony, self-irony, sarcasm; she is clever at addressing, with a light and powerful touch, the many contradictions in the Janus-faced theme of the “beauty of ugliness” and the “ugliness of beauty”, which fascinates our social media-driven western/global society.

Silvia Gribaudi

“My work moves along the permeable boundary that divides audience and performer, investigating the subtle but fertile space between laughter and desecration, between poetics and politics. This experimentation takes place within the dancing body, it addresses social themes and is composed in the choreographic work.
I use humour to deconstruct prejudice and explore the deviations from a recognized model, relentlessly in search of a fallible and revolutionary clown, who dares to engage the head-spinning poetry of imperfection to be able, despite himself, to create sparks of beauty and grace”.
