Fergus 2Receptacle: “container of different entities”, the capacity to “hold”, “absorb”, “retain”; in Botany, ‘an enlarged area at the apex of a stem that bears the organs of a flower or the florets of a flower head’. Moving Bodies Butoh and Live Art, in both cities Dublin and Torino, wants to retain-contaminate with different poetics and aesthetics in a space capable to contain transmutations rejections relations and incorporations.

Immagine 23 “recipiente” come , capace di ricevere, di contenere. L’estetica ed il sentito poetico per il Moving Bodies Festival 2015 concepisce gli artisti e gli spettacoli ed il luogo stesso in cui il Festival viene svolto – il teatro Espace, come la capacita’ di contenere e di ricevere cio’ che puo’ essere trasmesso in questo preciso periodo storico. Insieme per ricevere e contenere cio’ che il Butoh e la Performance Art possono generare scoprire e rivelare.
