Dance Limerick is delighted to invite Aerowaves artist Pietro Marullo to recreate / restage a site-specific short version of 'WRECK-List of extinct species' to be presented at the next edition of What Next at Dance Limerick in February 2019.

Open Call for Irish based Dancers

The choreographer seeks three female dancers with a high technical level, improvisation skills and ability to work well in a group, to take part in the rehearsals and performance process.

The dynamic process proposed is to attend a one-week workshop/rehearsal to experiment with the manipulation and technical aspects (body-body, body-object) behind this hybrid performance and to create the site-specific version.

7 - 9 of February 2019: Rehearsal and Performance

Fee €1,000

Deadline Wednesday 3 October 2018

About the performance:

WRECK is a huge floating sculpture which moves in the space like a hunter. As it gently swallows and spits human beings, our imagination wanders.  Is this a modern Leviathan, an image of humanity itself or the shadow of an upcoming catastrophe? 

Described as an "elastic performance", WRECK can be shown indoor or outdoor and adapted to space-specific conditions.

About Pietro Marullo

Pietro Marullo is an Italian artist based in Brussels. His interdisciplinary work lies at the intersection of visual and performing art, installation and new technologies. 

Pietro studied direction at the Institut National Supérieur des Arts du Spectacle et des Techniques de Diffusion in Brussels and graduated in 2012.  Since 2010, he has been invited as a young artist to different festivals like Biennale di Venezia, Festival Avignon, Findplus at Schaubhune of Berlin, Festival TransAmeriques of Montreal, Wildwuchs of Basel.
‘ARANCE – avoid shooting blacks’ is his first production about the link between modern slavery and migration today (Festival Emulation 2015 at Théâtre de Liege and Théâtre Varia in Brussels in February 2016). In 2017, he presented the performance WRECK-List of extinct species in the Museum MART of Rovereto (Italy) for the opening of the International Dance Festival OrienteOccidente. This project is selected by Arte Laguna Prize 2018 of Venise and Danse Elargie 2018 of Paris, and it will be presented for the opening of the next SIDance Festival in October 2018 in Seoul, South Korea. 

Since 2017, Pietro has been teaching and sharing ideas about "the metaphorical body and space" at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre in Vilnius. In January 2019, Pietro will present his new production 'ARIANE (eu)phonie' in Théâtre Varia in Brussels: a plastic-acoustic landscape about bas-relief and modern hotspots for refugees.
