It’s a funny affair with gender roles. We were laughing a lot with Lisa when, on the day our artistic nomination for Santarcangelo became public, all journalists tended to describe us as “the two blondes”. We fully embraced this newly found blondness – a playful approach to your understanding of self allows for the freedom to play and to work on your own terms.

Silvia Gribaudi is one of those rare artists who dares to be hilarious, irreverent and empathetic all at once. After presenting R.osa in Santarcangelo two years ago, Silvia returns with her new piece Graces, subverting conventions around body image and gender roles in a comical stage performance.
The performance draws on the mythology of the Three Graces: Euphosyne, Aglaea and Thalia – radiated splendor, joy and prosperity. Three male dancers take the stage, together with the choreographer, in the time and space suspended between the human and the abstract: a place where male and female meet, without roles, and dance to the rhythm. Gribaudi references the classical traditions of sculpture and ballet with the tongue-in-cheek approach characteristic of her work.
Graces shines with virtuosity and humor, the joy of the unconventional and unexpected.
