Gruppo Nanou – biographical notes
edited by Sergio Lo Gatto and Marco Valerio Amico
Gruppo Nanou was founded in 2004 in Ravenna by the meeting between Marco Valerio Amico, Rhuena Bracci and Roberto Rettura. The common denominator of this company’s work consists of an in-depth work on the image, sound, light and time of the performance in their relationship with the human figure. In the research path of the company, which does not use the word declaimed or recited as a medium and yet does not ignore – in the process of creation – literary materials and choreographic writing is analyzed in relation to space and objects, which they are activated when they come into contact with the performer, understood as a “sign among the signs”. Light is one of the fundamental elements of the stage composition, its distribution and its interaction with the movement become generators of further meanings, open towards the unconscious dimensions.
