"When this new work was commissioned to me, I immediately started thinking about the idea of ​​well-being, what "feeling good" means to me and how dance can translate this condition. The image from which I started is that of the snow you observe when you are small from outside the window. I contemplated the white of the outside and the warmth of the inside, the sense of protection and community that one often feels in these moments. Before starting to work with the bodies of the dancers, I thought of creating an environment that already reflected the idea of ​​creation, starting with their clothes. So I decided to involve a group of women in the project "The crochet club", who, during the pandemic, came together to reinvent themselves , rediscovering an art, transforming it into a new job. Courageously finding a new light from which to restart and draw well-being in such a dark moment for everyone. Perfectly embodying my sense of well-being. In this discovering, comforting and confront each other. I am very fascinated by this art, by the poetry that transforms a thread into a dress, if guided by the right hands. This precious handcrafted embroidery makes me think of the bodies of dancers, craftsmen themselves, who with body and movement are capable of giving life to something new, creative, original. Something unique, like a snowflake falling to the ground. This is a surprising affinity, since it is said that crochet work was born in a small village, where a lady, very skilled in craftsmanship, was fascinated by the spectacle of snowflakes falling on her windowsill and tried to reproduce their beauty with a cotton thread and a large curved needle. By intertwining these elements, I would like to invade the viewer with a sudden snowfall of moving bodies, to stop his time in front of a serene contemplation. For me, well-being is just that. Embrace a passion, share it. Mend a relationship with a loved one. Discovering a new part of yourself and committing yourself to nurturing it, always sewing a new piece of it. Composing a choreography as if it were crochet: an intricate yet sophisticated weave, a conscious weave that generates new forms. Build, sew, mend, reinvent."
