EMERGENCY EXIT is a dance and videomapping piece with a performer and a puppet to relate, in a visual way, the different roles of women at the time
The relationship with another imaginary and virtual will be the beginning of a journey in the memory of the body that dances and questions itself, as well as roles, identities, memories, desires. What is this emergency exit? Where will it take us?
"Emergency Exit" suggests a thought: if men follow the Peter Pan myth, perhaps women "fall" into the Alice myth, debating between the will to respect the
gender rules and patterns and the curiosity to discover an alternate wonderland. This piece is a bit the story of a grown-up Alice who can't help but lie down the eastern hole from time to time ...

In order to "lose and meet the public" throughout this trip halfway between fantasy and reality, he did not skimp on the staging. There were dolls and puppets made by herself.

The struggle between comfort and discomfort, desire and non-desire, what urgent and important emerges in the dance-theater piece ‘Emergency exit’ [...] The show is a mix between contemporary dance and physical theater, in whose crossing is the investigation carried out by the resident Italian artist For ten years in Spain, whose dance has evolved and responds to a 'contaminated' style both by different disciplines and by the culture of his native country and his experience in Madrid, where he has lived, and Catalonia, where he currently resides.
Miguel Quiroga - Director of Espacio Escénico El Huerto - Gijón
[...] Her work has also made it clear to us that she is an artist who is in search of her own scenic language, based on contemporary scenic dramaturgies, which is why we consider support for her projects highly recommended and necessary.
Miguel Muñoz de Morales - Director of Teatro de la Sensacion - Ciudad Real
It has happened again! Antonella D'Ascenzi with her "EMERGENCY EXIT # of skin and thread" has turned the Theater into the Ritual necessary to converge symbiosis, emotions, sensations and vibration of the senses. We rediscover ourselves in this type of artistic manifestations, as human beings close to the objective of Culture. Share knowledge with citizens for our own emotional growth. Thanks to Antonella and her fantastic team.
