Circo contemporaneo

Diverged is inspired by the poetry of Robert Frost to tell the inner struggle that occurs between logic and instinct when you have to make a decision.

A dancer embodies the role of logic, she is associated with the archetype of the Earth, and an air acrobat is the instinct, he is associated with the Air archetype.

Imagine the scene cohabitated by these interpreters and divided by a rope.

At the beginning the characters are the mirror of each other, move in unison, but in their evolution occurs gradually and each manifests its own drive toward an element: the land on one side, the air from the other. The rope divides the scene, as to indicate graphically a boundary between spaces, but with defining of character of the actors become a contentious issue: the metaphor of a power struggle.

The impulse of the characters toward opposing spaces generates tension, which increases gradually to result in a conflict that sets new boundaries: the floor becomes the habitat of one, the air of the other.

It is clear, however, that this solution leads to unhappiness of both: the division and loneliness living in their elements makes them vulnerable. For this reason, the performers are compared again, have changed and matured than the first time, disillusioned by the experience of solitary life in their element, they are willing to deal with conflict differently, to dissolve it and to transform it into play; This new approach leads them to a compromise, a balance that respects the nature of each.

DueDá Company was born from the collaboration of two artists: Stevie Boyd, aerial acrobat, and Giada Negroni, dancer and choreographer.
Stevie and Giada met at Teatro Alla Scala during A Dog’s Heart production and while working together they have the chance to know each, appreciate the other’s work and discover they both had a less than ordinary career path. Stevie in fact completed studies in Biotechnology and Giada in Electronic Engineering.
Both decided to change their respective fiels of specialization to dedicate themselves to the arts. They chose the most difficult path, and together with their passion, embraced uncertainly and insecutity.
The name of the company DueDá belongs from the word two: Due is two in italian and Dá is two in irish. The artists choose this name because they think is a good way to resume their poetic: two different arts, two generes, two cultures are creating together.
