    AUREA by Emanuele Soavi - INcompany in collaboration with SUSANNE LINKE Nightreview of the premiere: NIGHTREVIEW “AUREA”: Light in the dark – A dance project by Emanuele Soavi in collaboration with Susanne Linke By Klaus Keil ©TANZweb Klaus Dilger Light in the dark – A dance project by Emanuele Soavi in collaboration with Susanne Linke By Klaus Keil translated by Silvia Werner Leonardo da Vinci in particular was the one who used the laws of proportion and harmony, the Golden Section he found in nature, to also define principles of fine arts. Transferring this premise of perfect beauty from a world of physical matter into dance as fine art is what dancer – choreographer Emanuele Soavi is aiming at in his new solo performance AUREA. Sectio Aurea – or the Golden Section, is where the title of this dance piece is derived from. So as to realize it Soavi relied on choreographic support from Susanne Linke, the Grand Dame of contemporary expressive dance and dance-theater. Based on an idea by Soavi both jointly developed an unusual dance project that seeks to understand and balance the proportionality of structure and chaos, order and disorder, security and insecurity on the dance stage. Soavi begins in primordial times of human history, viewed by Christian Western civilization not only as physical evolution but also always in connection with Christian tradition. “And the earth was waste and without form; and it was dark on the face of the deep”, that is the beginning of Genesis, the first book of Moses. For choreographer Emanuele Soavi who is also dancing this piece, these first biblical lines were his “source of inspiration and starting point” for this solo performance proving once more that he is one of the best and most expressive dancers of Cologne’s dance scene. AUREA is a strong beginning for a long-term dance-research project entitled THE HABIT CYCLES. The stage is captured in dark heaviness. Only a faint neon light illuminates an unspecific pile of leaves that is placed on the side. It will turn out to be crumpled-up paper. Even the piano with Thomas Wansing, who accompanies the performance with a sensitive composition based on motifs by Johan Sebastian Bach, completely vanishes in the dark. His at first soft tunes suggest that even in the darkest corners faint traces of humanity exist. Silence and darkness mark the beginning of the dance piece. For several minutes nothing moves on stage. One is concentrated on searching for a movement, for the dancer. Then, a faint crackling like breaking twigs. Slowly, infinitely slowly a human figure emerges from the pile that seems to represent matter in its archaic form. At first it is barely noticeable. Was that an arm, a foot, a head? Much later the movements of this black figure, of which only the eyes are strikingly white, merge into human proportions. The human contorts himself, stretches his extremities, ends up in a squatting position, and with the same slowness the light rises above pile and human and now fully illuminates the stage. Maybe this reference of “Let there be light” is a bit too much, though it quickly disappears in the light of dancer Soavi’s artistic strength. Through every movement life flows into his body. He stretches and expands, thus creates figures that solidify for a brief moment, before he again raises his arms into the air, like tentacles searching for new forms. Due to their slowseness in dance the collaboration with choreographer Susanne Linke shows. In his dance Soavi constantly moves between two extremes, he seeks support and structure in classical ballet positions representing preservation in dance, only to instantly change into contemporary movements symbolizing break and change. An ongoing change of unexpected movements defines Soavi’s solo performance. He enters the fifth position of classical ballt only to chase through the pile of leaves on the floor in brilliant twists of his body, driving the leaves across the stage. Then again, he calmly picks them up to organize the chaos. Sometimes he gazes into the audience and far beyond as if searching for a major reason of his action as well as the meaning of existence as such. With this choreography and its expressive dance sequences the team Soavi / Linke vividly manages to open up the gaze for AUREA, the Golden Section also in dance.
