ADDIO UNPLUGGED is a farewell to end. A journey to a physical and mental point zero, to a new beginning. ADDIO UNPLUGGED demonstrates how dynamics and energy can be passed on based on the trust that the other receives your energy and keeps it going.
ADDIO UNPLUGGED is an adapted version of ADDIO ALLA FINE (première 2012 Holland Festival) for the first year students of ARTEZ.
How can we manage to break through the general sense of malaise? How do we organise a world without limits? How do we get people to take responsibility for each other again? Addio alla Fine was inspired by the book De Improvisatiemaatschappij (The Improvisational Society) by Hans Boutellier. In his book Bouttellier writes about a new social order in society, about ways in which coherence and solidarity arise. Another source of inspiration is the film E la Nave Va (1983) by the Italian director Federico Fellini. Fellini demonstrates how idolatry, social status, political inclination, nationality and a desire for power and love trouble human relations, when a large company is clenched together on a boat, forced to pass their time together. Addio alla Fine was the first of a series of five around 'the body in revolt'. In this series, dance is used to search for new correlations with ourselves (the own body) and society (other bodies).
