Sissj Bassani e Martina Piazzi

Sissj Bassani - Martinia Piazzi | Parini Secondo

Parini Secondo was born in 2017 from an idea of Sissj Bassani (Cesena, ‘97) and Martina Piazzi (Bologna, ‘97), involving Camilla Neri and Francesca Pizzagalli.
The collective works on the movement starting from different and unpredictable sources, questioning the limits of authorship and up-to-dateism. With an ecological and ready-made act, the group remixes other people’s ideas and choreographic materials taken from the online world, often in the form of tutorials, assembling choreographies through sampling. Parini exploits and supports the potential of open source and DIY [do-it-yourself] ethic/aesthetic.
From 2019 the collective collaborates with Alberto Ricca/Bienoise (Verbania, ‘85) teacher, founder of the radical improvisation label Floating Forest Records, and electronic composer balanced between contemplation and clubbing, with a fetishism for instruments pushed to their limits and the mash-up between musical genres. Alberto is present in Parini Secondo projects i (2019), ROCCO (2019) and SPEEED (2020).
Since its foundation, the collective has participated in several festivals, events and competitions: OPUS 1 International Dance Competition for Young Choreographers (Celje, Slovenia, 2018-2019); U.F.O. Art&sound Festival (Omegna, Italy, 2018-2020); Fron+@ Festival (Murska Sobota, Slovenia, 2018); ArtistInCasa Festival (Republic of San Marino, 2018); theWorkRoom (Milan, Italy, 2019); NAOcrea (Milan, Italy, 2019); Multiplicidades Festival (Santa Cruz, Portugal, 2019); ELEMENTI Festival (Cervia, Italy, 2020); Danza Urbana (Bologna, Italy, 2021).
In 2020-21 Parini and Magdalena Öttl win KreativCampus.Rhur residency program with the project It’s not my responsibility to get famous/be me, funded by Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and powered by ecce – European Centre for Creative Economy.
