Come Neve wants to translate a personal idea of well-being into dance.

The starting image is a snow falling outside the window. The feeling of comfort that comes from the sense of protection and warmth inside, combined with the magic of contemplating the whiteness outside.

Before beginning the work, I involved a group of women in the project who gathered in a “Crochet Club” during the pandemic. This ancient art served as an opportunity not only for collaboration and connection for these women, but also an opportunity for renaissance.

It is said that crochet was born from the ability and imagination of a woman who, fascinated by the beauty and perfection of the snowflakes, decided to reproduce their wonder with a simple hooked needle and a cotton thread.

Interweaving these elements, I wants to invade the spectator with a sudden snowfall of bodies in movement, causing time to pause in a state of serene contemplation. A piece composed as a crochet work: an intricate yet sophisticated plot, a conscious weaving that generates new forms.
