R. OSA is a piece that is perfectly inscribed in Silvia Gribaudi’s poetics; Silvia is a choreographer who, with a baffling irony, stages the expression of a body, of women and of the social role they are given, through an informal language, creating a relationship with the audience. R. OSA is inspired by Botero’s imagery, by Jane Fonda’s world of the 80s, by the concept of success and performance. R.OSA is a piece in which the performer stages a “one woman show”, shifting the audience’s gaze through a dramaturgy that is composed of 10 exercises of virtuosity.
Silvia Gribaudi was born in Turin, she has been active as a performer for quite a while. Her choreographic language crosses performing art, dance, and theatre, focusing on the research on body and on the relationship with the audience. Her poetics constantly resorts to dialogue and is embedded in the social and cultural framework where her performances develop. Her artistic language could be summarised as the encounter of dance with a raw, empathetic humour.
