Jukebox, established in Paris under the leadership of Serena Malacco, is a contemporary dance company born of the Italian choreographer’s desire to create a meticulous, concise exploration of the relationship between contemporary dance and popular music.
The choreographer brings to the stage everyday life, movements that we regularly see around us, by pairing them with rock and pop songs that are part of the collective memory. Her choreographic lexicon pays particular attention to gestures and unconscious movements, capturing a gesture as one would through a camera lense.
Her work has been defined in Italian press reviews as anthropological choreography, in which the principal actor is the human being. Emotions that move and stir (from the latin ex moveo) man have always fascinated the choreographer as a subject of research, as she explores the emotional origins of gestures, writing a kind of etymological movement dictionary.
