Scotchtape Prostheses
by Luigia Riva
2016 - Biarritz festival Contemporary dance, Chaillot Paris, France

Innesti is Italian for graft, describing the situation of a twig inserted onto a trunk of a living plant. Whether the muscular prostheses grafted onto the dancers bodies augment the body's virility or disable the physical liberty is negotiated in Luigia's choreography.
