WE, the Angel, is a dance journey created especially for L’Angelo di Castello. A location performance that focuses on the angel and specifically the Angelus Novus: An image of an angel created by Paul Klee who, in philosopher Walter Benjamin's interpretation, faces the past. It’s spread wings catch the wind from paradise and the rising storm propels the angel forward into an uncertain adventure. There we come: Back to the Future. We spread our wings. The storm rises.
WE, the Angel is part of the WE-Cycle, a series of performances by choreographers Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten in which they present the wonder of the body in revolt and the way it can inspire us. The WE project is about the journey we undertake as humanity. It offers new perspectives in a rapidly changing world..
WE the Angel is a location project in Castel Sant'Angelo with 10 performers, including 7 dancers, 2 percussionists and 1 singer.
