Renown Italian choreographer and Artistic Director of ImPerfect Dancers Company, Walter Matteini's first repertory piece for Backhausdance is a deeply human and accessible, emotional and athletic creation for the full company. The choreographic language is intensely physical and hinges on the quest to explore the human soul. Rich in emotional depth condensed into movement, Beyond the Noise asks the dancers to shed their armor of technique and show others how they really feel with the hope that they will be accepted for who and how they are.
