Sonatas and Interludes
by Lenio Kaklea for 'Dancing Studies'
Friday 22 and Satuday 23 April at 9 pm
On Friday 22 and Saturday 23 April 2022, during the preview days of the 2022 Biennale Arte, the ‘Dancing Studies’ series continues with a contribution from dancer and choreographer Lenio Kaklea.
She will perform in the atrium of Palazzo Grassi a duet with pianist Orlando Bass, inspired by what is considered one of John Cage’s most significant pieces, ‘Sonatas and Interludes’, a work on which Kaklea has been working since 2019. “Sonatas and Interludes” is a cycle of twenty pieces for piano intended to convey the influence of Eastern philosophy and the pursuit of new sources of sound that characterised the composer’s output towards the end of the 1940s.
From April to June 2022, Palazzo Grassi - Punta della Dogana presents ‘Dancing Studies’, a series of new performances created by a group of internationally-renowned choreographers - William Forsythe, Lenio Kaklea, Pam Tanowitz, Ralph Lemon - invited to develop a project in dialogue with the work of Bruce Nauman and the exhibition 'Bruce Nauman: Contrapposto Studies' at Punta della Dogana.
