"Ida y Vuelta"'s Premiere
Giuseppe Bucci: creator, author and choreograph
Charles Mugel: director
Ambre Pini and Giuseppe Bucci: dancers
This dance film was co-produced by the Fondation Fluxum and was shown in exclusivity at Flux Laboratory.
«Ida y Vuelta» initially saw the light of day in the form of a choreography duo. Next emerged the strong desire to transpose it into a cinematographic work.
This medium-length black and white movie with 1950’s feel, a period when the lack of gimmicks and parasite elements holds authentic truth, takes us to the essential. The need to return to basic values was inevitable.
The duo relates the monologue of the two dancers during their last meal. It is fed by signs, confessions, recollections, in turn stifled, deadened and silently laden with emotions. It is the disarming weight of seconds that pass, linked to the impossibility of halting them.
And then the case. This object that tells a tale all by itself. Both a carrier and instigator, it expresses the distance from a departure to new horizons and new choices.
Keeping the essential is a way of limiting the scale of our own needs in order to feel sufficiently light and better start again.
