Safe Piece (installation) was a special phase of the project of the same name, which started with a series of performances and was captured in a film (2019). Safe Piece was presented as an installation for the first time in Utrecht together with a selection of video stills composed by Isabelle Vigier, the film and a soundscape composed by Andy Moor.
When her first child was seven months old choreographer Valentina Campora started a series of performances where she, the father of the child, and the baby are performing together in front of a small audience. The sessions have been documented on video over four years. The film Safe Piece shows the process of evolving a semi improvised dance piece through time. The family develops a non verbal language that allows them to be all at once within a multitude of polarized dimensions : private and public, playing and performing, caring and taking risks, improvising and creating choreography.
For Safe Piece (installation) prints and sounds from the film are assembled in the gallery space. The selection of images lay out the communication which took place over the years.
