Sisyphus / Trans / Form is a new site specific performance piece by choreographer and multi disciplinarian artist Dimitris Papaioannou staged at the Collezione Maramotti in Reggio Emilia, Italy. It debuted on 24th October.
This marks the sixth initiative in a decade-long collaboration among Collezione Maramotti, Max Mara and Fondazione I Teatri, after performances by the Trisha Brown Dance Company (2009), Shen Wei Dance Arts (2011), Wayne McGregor | Random Dance (2013), Hofesh Shechter/Shechter Junior (2015) and Saburo Teshigawara_KARAS (2017). Invitations to choreographers of international renown to conceive and present dance performances in a place dedicated to contemporary art arises from the wish of fostering a close and exciting dialogue between the world of dance and the visual arts.
This collaboration includes the presentation of the new production by Papaioannou the for Aperto Festival 2020: an international project which will see I Teatri as co-producers, supported by Max Mara.
Presented as part of Festival Aperto 2019, Sisyphus / Trans / Form is performed until 27 October in the Collezione Maramotti collections, housed in the brutalist former headquarters of the Max Mara fashion brand. ⠀
