Grave is an Italian word which indicates something that has a weight, that is subject to the force of gravity.
The movement of this short performance is about the sensation of a precipitating body, the slowness of its gestures while gravity makes it crashing to the ground, at a stratospheric speed.
The moment is firm in the speed.
A motionless moment inside the speed of a body which knows it’s going to crash to the ground.
Dewey Dell was formed in 2007 by four young people: Teodora, Demetrio, Agata Castellucci and Eugenio Resta. They have strong skills in different areas. This took each of them to give priority to a specific aspect of the work, without giving up a collective modeling of materials. Teodora is therefore author of choreographies, Demetrio composes the music, Eugenio designs the lights and takes care of the technical aspects of production, while Agata assists in choreographic creation and looks after aspects of organization. Since 2007 Dewey Dell has created different works: à elle vide (2007), KIN KEEN KING (2008), Baldassarre (2009), Cinquanta Urlanti Quaranta Ruggenti Sessanta Stridenti (2010), Grave (2011/12) and various forms of live concert, in collaboration with Black Fanfare, the musical group of Demetrio Castellucci, Black Fanfare//Dewey Dell (2011) and Tuono (2012). Since 2007 Dewey Dell is part of Fies Factory, a project by Centrale Fies. The name Dewey Dell is a tribute to Faulkner and to the young girl of “As I lay dying”, under whose look the company prepares itself to wander towards the abyss.
