LETTER OF INTENTION
“1984…2014” proposes to take a step back from the world we live in with touches of humor, romanticism, realism and optimism… Big Brother is watching us from his Telescreen. We are willingly letting ourselves be observed, surrounded by security cameras, erasing the separation between private and public life with social networks, tracked by electronic transactions, permanently distracted by the fake reality TV shows and smart phones that progressively replace human interactions…
Our exit strategy for freedom lies in learning the rules of the system to break them better and more discreetly, building community, developing autonomy, educating ourselves, claiming our intellectual curiosity and integrity, cultivating love and hope.
Follow Anasma -the “Dancing Storyteller”- and Chiara and Massimo of la Compagnia Degli Gnomi in this adventure loosely adapted from George Orwell’s master work 1984 and from Anasma’s solo dance work since 2006. We will take the spectator between fiction and reality, in a space where live performance meets multimedia and where world dances meet physical theater, silent movies, mime and singing.
A Fallen Angel defies God as he finds the Box of Secrets containing the Seven Sins and all that is evil. Chased from Heaven, he endeavors to take his revenge by spreading evil and reversed values on Earth. Thus, he transforms God’s Earthly Creation into to the world of “Europia 2014,” constantly observed and oppressed by his vassal Big Brother.
2014. Europia. Like every single citizen of the continent, being surrounded and spied on through each screen, closely controlled by Thought Police, Winston and Julia lead robotic lives without freedom of thought, without pleasure, without joy, without trust, without questioning. Exchanges between citizens are minimal. Sexual acts are reserved to married couples and purely reproductive. Babies are raised by the Party and as they grow up, children are encouraged to snitch on their parents if they are suspected of Thought Crime. The Family is destroyed. The Individual is destroyed. The Community is destroyed. “War is Peace, Freedom is slavery, Ignorance is strength.” During Hate Week, citizens are taught to hate the Party’s biggest enemy and betrayer: G-LoveStein.
Deep inside, Winston thinks differently. He senses that something is wrong in his world. He questions the integrity of Big Brother’s good intentions for the Party members. He dreams of escaping, of having a different life. One day, he meets Julia, another Rebel.
FIGHTING FOR LOVE
Breaking all the rules, they meet secretly, practicing sensual activism, buying goods on the black market, and fostering rebellious thoughts by reading books and watching movies forbidden by the Party. Times pass and they learn to trust and love each other. One day, Winston and Julia get caught by the Thought Police. They are imprisoned, tortured and brainwashed.
…No !!! This show is about hope for a better today and tomorrow! Rewind! One day, Windston and Julia go and meet secretly with G-LoveStein, the Soldier of Love.

Anasma and her production and artist management company World Citizen Dance present an exciting interactive show “On Your Marks, Get Set, Dance!,” also called “Avanti, Danziamo!” and “A vos marques, prets, dansez!”.
WORLD CITIZEN DANCE and Anasma present “On Your Marks, Get Set, Dance!” – a professional global dance show not like any other, introducing a mix of choreographic and theatrical versatility. The show has been presented on three continents with over 30 different artists. Each presentation of “On Your Marks, Get Set, Dance!” is unique because of the guests invited onstage and the audience participation. During the first part, each performer presents a short piece on a common theme. In the second part of the show, the performers improvise within the frame of structured games in which the audience can make requests and suggestions.
Professional international artists with high level training in various dance/theater/martial arts techniques (Bellydance; Jazz; Modern; Breakdance; House; Popping; Locking; African; Flamenco; DeRose Method and Yoga; Mime; Acting; Wushu; Tae Kwon Do; Hula; and more) are invited to present their works on a common theme in the first part of the show. Through their own artistic vision, poetry and movement vocabulary, the guest performers create a body expression meant to offer content and messages.
Then, the second part of the show becomes an interactive, experimental live encounter between dance and improvisational theater. The audience is invited to submit themes to the performers – such as characters, animals, emotions, stories, and everyday gestures; and to give their music to the sound technician. The performers then improvise on those themes, while dancing. Professional performers take risks with their artistry. They move through their emotions, spontaneously creating characters, stories, symbols and meaning. This dynamic part of the show facilitates creative interaction between the audience and a gifted cast.
Come witness the artistry of professional international talent. Come take part and create the magic from your seat. Two shows are never the same! Bring your music and your sense of humor for this unique experience.
