The entire afternoon of Saturday, March 4, will be devoted to the PARSEC STUDIO project, the program designed to support the research of young artists.

4-9 p.m. Open studio
6 and 8 p.m. Performance

From 4 p.m., Parini Secondo’s studio will be open to the public to present do-around-the-world, work-in-progress that the collective is developing in Parsec’s spaces. In addition, at 6 and 8 p.m., a performance will be presented. Some works, set up in the space, will also be visible on March 5 and 6 by appointment.

With do-around-the-world, Parini Secondo reconnects with the world of play, fascinated by skipping rope both as an athletic practice and as a rhythmic element: in skipping rope, “music and athleticism go hand in hand” (K. Gaunt).  This instrument is used as an activator of place-specific acoustic events selected for their resonant power, and the gymnastic activity becomes an acoustic and visual meditative pretext. 

Parini Secondo was born in 2017 from an idea of Sissj Bassani (Cesena,1997) and Martina Piazzi (Bologna, 1997). From the beginning, the collective involves dancers Camilla Neri (Lugo, 1997) and Francesca Pizzagalli (Cesena, 1997). 
The artists aim to work on movement in a protean way, questioning the limits of authorship and up-to-dateism. Parini’s latest research, do-around-the-world, is concerned with rope skipping and childhood playful rhythmic practices as identifying cultural and musical elements of her own female background. The project is supported by the Antibodies XL network through the SupportER grant and the ResiDance residency track, as well as the ERASMUS+ program.
