In Performance: Pathosformel (Italy) – La timidezza delle ossa

“La timidezza delle ossa” (shyness of bones).

Nose, thigh-bone, knuckles and shoulder blade are broken up and shown through a thin epidermis revealing everything. They are phantasms altering our perception of the human body by doing a radiographical dance made up of rough-edge bones and squashed flesh. The body is reduced to its frame; physiognomy, distinguishing marks and flesh have vanished.


Pathosformel is Daniel Blanga Gubbay and Paola Villani, young artists based in Milan. Their work explores new ways of using the body on stage and radically experiments with movement and visual imagery. The Timidity of Bones was created in 2007 when it won special mention at Premio Scenario, Italian theatre’s leading awards celebration. In 2008 it was an award-winner at Sezione Autonoma in Cesena, an event established by Romeo Castellucci’s Societas Raffaello Sanzio.
