“The job ennobles the man”
In Italy we say “The job ennobles the man” A job that any person performs becomes part of their life and takes them on a journey. The emotion that this brings becomes part of that person too.
This project highlights 3 jobs: Card Dealer, Music Conductor and Painter.
Reproducing them through dance, we will explore the body language and expressive movements of these occupations, and portray the pleasure that a person can feel going to work when you love your job. At the same time, how deep is the dissatisfaction when you really don’t want to be doing that work?
Bringing feelings of love, hate, passion, frustration, and sadness to the surface, this piece about real people uncovers the mental challenges linked to something every day… Work.
