Through Walls of Mist is a choreographic project by Billy Cowie, a Scottish choreographer, musician, writer and visual artist, conceived for Fondazione Prada in Milan
A collaboration developed with Civica Scuola di Teatro Paolo Grassi, its director Giampiero Solari, and 11 newly-graduated dancers of the Course in Dance Theatre.
Attraverso i muri di bruma is the second performing arts project to be hosted by Fondazione Prada aiming to expand its cultural program and exploring other instruments of research beyond visual arts. Billy, acclaimed worldwide for his stereoscopic performances and video installations, has conceived a site-specific project that includes music, video projections and live choreography and goes with his vision that aim to make spectators as explorers able to move with the dancers, leave when they have had enough, return when they want more. 

 

 

“THE REGULATION BLACK BOX SPACE OF SO MUCH PERFORMANCE IS NOT ONLY FLAT IN TERMS OF VISUALITY IT IS PHYSICALLY FLAT AS WELL […]” – BILLY COWIE
