"A fresco of humanity and its paradoxes" Monica Casadei, Artemis Danza. Pasolini’s research would begin from the body: his own, lean and athletic, and from his hunger for bodies, which emerges from all of his work in its lights and shadows. Through the characters, words and images that populate his oeuvre, the Emilian author manifested his thought and made it into a work of art open to different interpretations.

The language of dance, merging body and soul, becomes a powerful tool to revive the complexity of his thought: there is the woman-mother - pillar of his poetic and cinematographic production - there is the notion of freedom, there is poetry, there is Bach's music - with whom he sought to establish an artistic partnership - and there is the sacredness of the gesture. All these ingredients populate texts and visions that give life to an homage made of tension and redemption, dreams and utopias.

In Monica Casadei's choreography there is the sun of Roma’s “borgate” (the hamlets of Rome), where life pulsates, children play and the young, dressed in colorful clothes, dream and fight for their rights. In “Pasolini-Fuochi segreti” there is the warmth of that sun, the blue of the sky and the warm air of spring.
