PNEUMA [pneuma] (2011). Performance by Pier Giorgio De Pinto at MACT/CACT with the choreographer Sara Nesti and the musician Giovanni Dal Monte.
Human reason needs only to will more strongly than fate, and She is fate. (Thomas Mann, The magic mountain (Der Zauberberg), 1924.)
Inspired by The magic mountain by Thomas Mann, Pier Giorgio De Pinto created this new performative work entitled Pneuma. Thematically the performance evokes the theme of breathing, of the vital blow and soul as well; of the original beginning and archetype linked to life and (im)material human reality.
Besides, the merge of personal and professional affinities among the author, the dancer Sara Nesti (Italy, 1973) and the composer Giovanni Dal Monte (Italy, 1967), who already composed many times sound tracks for his video works, transforms Pneuma performance into an homage to actress and composer for their personal becoming, in balance between subjective and global imagery slowly transcended into the evolution of the performance itself.
The sounds, especially created by the composer and musician Giovanni Dal Monte, accompanies this metamorphosis. In the music score, becoming universal as it also comprises a singing choir in Esperanto, you perceive influences relating us to the vast mystery of nature and to the vital cycle of human being.
