ALMA_ATA is a dance performance production part of “ROD project- Three Units on Kazakhstan”.

 

 

 

ROD is a multi-year performing art project which examines the possible relations between Italian and Kazakh culture.

 

ALMA_ATA developed after a journey in Almaty in September 2013.

 

ALMA_ATA focuses on the genesis of Almaty and itsfollowing contradictions. Almaty is the biggest city in Kazakhstan, the ex-capital city, with a lively culture, considered the “golden tooth”of the Steppes since always.

 

ALMA_ATA is not Almaty.

 

ALMA_ATA is a rough, sharp-cornered dance, with moments of stillness where that founds the time to wonder about the concept of Identity into changeable population.

 

ALMA_ATA follows the nomads freedom and strength of Kazakh people; theroughness coming from the Soviet Union; the POP arriving from the West.

 

ALMA_ATA has neither North nor South.

 

ALMA_ATA is the point of view of an Italian person watching the changing culture in Almaty and the sense of responsibility that comes out from this.

 

ALMA_ATA is an open question on the idea of identity, nomadic root and hope for the future.
