Teatro La Ribalta: Nobody Knows About Us


German premiere

Mattia Peretto is a performer with Down syndrome and Julie Anne Stanzak danced with Pina Bausch. Cautiously and with a sense of amazement, they find a way to one another, the spontaneous boy with an expressiveness that defies convention and the slender, elegant dancer with her effortlessly expressive body wrought by years of training. “Niemand weiß von uns” (Nobody Knows About Us) shows the fragility of the human being and cautiously seeks out the invisible and unspoken. Tentatively and solicitously the two figures approach one another, perhaps mother and son, perhaps man and woman: two lonely people yearning for a relationship. Based in Bolzano, Teatro La Ribalta is an inclusive, multi-award-winning ensemble comprising artists with and without disabilities.

“Julie Stanzak approaches Mattia with all the artful movements that seem to come to trained dancers naturally. (...) Mattia Peretto moves with a delicate power and musicality, he is both performer and narrator: moving, funny and haunting.” – salto.bz
