L’oro delle cicatrici. Giovanna Belloni involves us in a beautiful experience made of dance and emotions thanks to Kintsugi, whose central theme is the inner reconstruction after trauma, and consequently the value and pride of showing scars and therefore weaknesses and failures, using them as a base to build one’s future. Giovanna Belloni is an architect from Milan that since the 80’s has worked in theatre and television as an Acrobat and dancer of modern dance-jazz, alongside artists like Dario Fo, Enzo Jannacci, Stefano Benni and Ellen Stewart. The passion, and indeed the urgency of creating and expressing, in particular with body language, led her to delve into contemporary dance and dance theatre, working with choreographers like Alessandra Costa, Simone Magnani and Daniele Ziglioli in various projects and shows. Committed and involved personally in the activity of several charities that operate in support of those who have undergone major trauma, in March 2018 she decided to put on stage, as Director and choreographer, at Teatro dell’arte di Milano, the contemporary dance performance “Kintsugi”, whose central theme is the inner reconstruction after trauma, and consequently the value and pride of showing scars and therefore weaknesses and failures, using them as a base to build one’s future. The proceeds of the initiative have been and will be donated to two charities, CAF Milan Onlus and the Cooperative Association La Meridiana di Monza, dealing respectively with children that have experienced violence and with Alzheimer patients and their families.
