This film is part of Silvia Lucchesis Carte Blanche, director and founder of Lo Schermo dell’Arte Festival in Florence.

Found Choreographies is a work that talks about dance starting from the representations of dance itself. The video reflects on the intangible matter of which dance is made of, freeing its linguistic immediacy from the force of the image to which it is often associated with, through a visual climax that from the movement of the hand leads to an evolution of kinetic matter until its final eclipse and celebration, in a compelling game of meanings and associations. The work is a dense cut-up, a dialectical exercise composed with intentional temporal asymmetry by cutting out shreds of found footage” from the history of dance and performance, crossing cinema and the internet, in search of a sensitive kinetic matter. A flow of decontextualized images to be rethought in the present in a new form, to search for other meanings, as if the substance of things existed only in the non-place of detachment.
