(...) the enigmatic and evocative Lucrezia Maimone with her OLTREMAI. In the wake of a literary epiphany, the dancer

Maimone elaborates a dark and melancholy solo. Oltremai is outlined as the fairy tale of a sad woman of the past. She lives in a lost space out of time where books rage. Large volumes that act as a stool, raise it, besiege it. They give her no rest, not even when she wishes to pray. Books that build controversial fantasies like bright holes in the dark, but capable of sucking it in the same way. She fights them off by leveraging her generous and athletic body. Vertical wall on the arms, ellipse of air in the forward and backward gyrations on one arm, extended and nervous spatiality in the split. It happens that an apparently placid and submissive figure gives way to a conscious ardor. Maimone reproduces a universe of images, emotions and perceptions, immersed in the purest theatre.
