In Violated Bodies, a teeming community of female and male bodies is tightly held in the memory of a wound. Still open or healed, this wound reverberates on the scene in an incessant dance nourished by impulses, instincts, anger and pain, in which overwhelming group dances are interspersed with duets and solos, and defenseless bodies are joined by the violent and ruthless bodies of attackers.

Starting from the search for testimonies of victims of rape and abuse as well as improvisation, Casadei builds a show oscillating between raw realism and poetry dictated by a possible redemption. Musically, Fiandrini’s remix of electronic samples ebbs and flows throughout the story in melodrama and symphonic music. View the trailer.
