In Movimento" is a dry reflection on choreography, a strictly formal work that plays on the semantic implications of movement, a sculptural pièce based on the unpredictable meanings that the forms of bodies take on during change. Six dancers occupy a stage lit only by white lights, giving life to enigmatic tableux, each marked by a letter of the alphabet.

 

A. D’Agostino – Daemonmagazine.it – aprile 2005

"(…) The supermen moving on the stage are tough and nervous and without any reassuring sense of saving anything. They move exactly and presently, sometimes serious up to anxiety sometimes so funny to tear up laughs to the public. (…) Very good the performers and definitely relevant the path that Roberto Castello and Alessandra Moretti have been trying to mark for years in keeping on the studies about “Il migliore dei mondi possibili”, that brought them to win the UBU in 2003 with the first stage of the work (…). Am innovating and trash research, in which the contamination with other languages (i.e. videoart) succeeds with no compulsion or tear, finding the way of surprising the public."

Carmelita Celi - La Sicilia - 9 dicembre 2003

"(…) The ‘best possible world’ evoked, which also gives name to the trilogy “In movimento” belongs to, is ironical and undoubtedly meant to provoke. (…) “The best possible world” is really a Metropolis taken apart like these scraps of movement fixed forever, a zoo of human machines, a future sideshow where all, supermen and secretaries alike, are grounded trapeze artists raising their arms – tadaaa – for applause. Applause given generously at the end of the performance. (…)"

Jennifer Dunning - THE NEW YORK TIMES - 15 ottobre 2003

"(…) There was a lot of fun to be had (…) in "Il Migliore dei Mondi Possibili"… The seven dancers were stylish and engaging, with the sleek look and attack of Merce Cunningham performers. The exquisitely beautiful lighting was by Gianni Pollini."
