Who's behind the project?
INNAN DUO. Two young artists, Sara Mitola and Giuseppe Sorressa, who met in their motherland Apulia and started sharing their passion about music and dance with a common desire: finding the way to express their creative voice and share experiences, ideas and feelings.
Sara Mitola. Graduated in June 2017 with a Ba Hons degree in Dance from the Institute of the Arts of Barcelona, she starts dancing as intern in the Martz Contemporary Dance Company (Spain). In the summer of 2010 she dances at the Petruzzelli Theatre in Bari, after being selected by Eleonora Abagnato, prima ballerina of Paris Opera Ballet. She dances in Germany in the “temperature production” performing a solo choreographed by herself- in the UK, in a research workshop of Ensemble Dance Co- in Paris, performing in Paris for Oriantheatre Dance Company- and in the Netherlands, in the Nikki de Graaf Company. On May 2017 she goes to New York to use the scholarship of World Dance Movement.
Giuseppe Sorressa. In 2016 he starts his studies at the "CPM- Music Institute di Milano". He played for the Conturband, the first Street Band in the south of Italy. With them, he travels Italy and Europe with 4 tours, during which they won the "Best Street Band Award 2014" and the 1st price in the "Street Band Show" of Monopli (BA). In 2016 he plays in Luxemburg, CastrorealeMilazzo jazz festival, Festival Gezziamoci, he records the first album of the Conturband. In the same year he takes part to the "Endorser Facus World Family", becoming endorser Facus.
Innan Duo is the duo composed and idealized by the dancer Sara Mitola and the drummer Giuseppe Sorressa. The originality of the duo is in the concept: Sara Mitola is the dancer and the choreographer who dances on the music idealized by Giuseppe Sorressa.
We presented for the first time or our piece as a duo in Sardinia, on July 2018, during the “ROOTED MOON, International Theatre Art Festival” . This experience is pushing us to keep working and investing in our potentialities!
The piece “Rites de Passage” is still a research and work in progress, and we want to expand it and preset it in different festivals and venues.
“Rites de Passage” comes from the desire to examine the human condition and its mutability. It explores the struggles of the development, the difficulties in finding our identity. It is about changes, transformations, Rites which mark a journey through life reflecting physical changes and altering responsibilities.
We need all your help in order to bring our production to life and make our work visible!
How do we use the money?
Our aim at is to present our project in other festivals in Italy and abroad.
We have so many venues already!
Unfortunately we are not able to afford all the costs of a production yet: rehearsal spaces, costumes, publicity material are only a small part of them.
This is the reason why we are asking for your help: you can make the difference and help our project coming to life! The rewards are symbolic but our gratitude is real.
Our objective is to reach 2.000 €. We choose a "take it all" campaign, which means we will be able to benefit from your donation only if the objective is reached. For this reason we divided our objective in small steps:
- first step 1000 € - used for the publicity material (website, brochure, ecc...)
- second step 1.500 €- rental of the rehearsal spaces, cost of costumes, lights ecc..
- third step 2.000€ - rental of spaces to records the music tracks, and record of the entire piece.
The project is ambitious, the duo is young but we believe in the power of our vision and we are investing everything we have. So if you want to support us in this journey, press "donate now" and help us making this happen!
