Masquerading as a sequel to an earlier, non-existent version of itself, The Passion of Andrea 2 is a mischievous con artist of a dance piece which deals with uneasiness, the inability to fully understand, and the painful desire for more. A combination of imagination and mystery, never completely revealing itself, it is essentially a show about a world of impossibilities, in which disappointment, idealism, anger, confusion, and death carry on a strange dialogue.

It's mode of communication has a specific hypnotic quality in which its contents, often extreme and contradictory, merge to create a fluid, metamorphic system where anything can happen, yet all is blurred.
With mannered gestures and jesterly attitude, the HARKLEKING projects an air of courtliness and a feeling of profound mistrust. It is reminiscent of the Grotesques, ancient wall decorations, in which monstrous figures emerge and blend in with elegant ornamental volutes. Figures, which, although can evoke amusement, do not elicit any joy which bodes the question ‘who is the joke on?’

About Ginevra Panzetti and Enrico Ticconi
Based in Berlin and Torino, Ginevra and Enrico have been working as a duo since 2008. Their artistic research interlaces dance, performance and visual art. Deepening themes related to the historical union between communication, violence and power, they draw on ancient imaginaries, creating hybrid figures or images between history and contemporaneity.
Both graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and attended Stoà, School for rhythmic movement and philosophy in Cesena, led by Claudia Castellucci. In 2010 they moved to Germany and delved into individual, but mutually complementary paths: Ginevra studied Media Art at the HGB in Leipzig whilst Enrico studied Dance, Context, Choreography at the HZT in Berlin.
