“Body’s Law” is a performance about a state of transition of the body. Transition means a passage from one point to another. It explores a social state of transition from the state of detention in a jail to the state of being part of a society.

It is focussed on the body’s movements. The state of detention entails, in fact, the idea that the society needs to take control of some people by controlling their movements, containing their bodies inside a prison.
Body's movements are also related to art through the dance. It is a way to include an artistic purpose in the action.
But performance art is not the dance, it is in between many different forms of arts.
The sound is another point of interest in the performance. During the performance, some of this movements generate electronic sounds in real time thanks to some electronic devices.
The sound is related to movements because is a sort of metaphor of creation.
The performer uses, also, his saliva to create a contrast with the features of the body related to the animal side and features related to the cultural side, like the technology used inside the performance.
“Body’s Law”, by and with Vincenzo Fiore Marrese, is produced by Teatro Anatomico. The performance was represented at London in the United Kingdom, two times at Riga in Latvia, at Minsk in Belarus, at Kiev in Ukraine, and at Athens in Greece.
