If, If, If, Then (Expanded version), 2021
Performance by Jacopo Jenna | West Gallery
Curator: Joel Valabrega
If, If, If, Then (Expanded version) (2021) is a choreographic work by Jacopo Jenna performed by three dancers, with the audience seated in a circle all around the stage. Beyond choreographed action, Jenna sees movement as an abstract form of observation, whereby contemporary dance is approached as a direct response to its immediate surroundings. The result is a deep layering of images: one on top of the other, one after the other, creating a collage of visual data drawn from existing repertoires, archives and our daily life. The dancers draw upon a range of backgrounds including street dance and other forms of contemporary dance, moving between different approaches and genres and making it impossible to find a stable, common ground. This work is produced in collaboration with composer Caterina Barbieri, whose exploration of the psychological effects of repetition is manifested in sonic patterns intended to channel a sense of ecstasy and contemplation.

Mudam invited artist Sacha di Giambattista for a collaborative project: joined by the people of Creamisu, a socio-cultural space for exchange and artistic expression for the homeless, they designed an isothermal mug. The project refers to production, consumption and wealth - topics that are addressed in the exhibition Post-Capital.
The isothermal cups designed in the workshops are available at Mudam Store from the Night of the Museums. Part of the sales will go to Caritas Luxembourg.
