by Carla Paolini
To give my thought a body
I choose a corps de ballet
I’d have it dance
excogitate acrobatic tricks
see it dancing about on the air
I’d create suitable tools to enable it
strengthen its intuitions
an athletic corps endowed with poetic ripples
hither and thither peepin’n the show
enormously increasin’n bubbles of trasparency
to reach the transfigured tumult of the audience
which coreographer has this very power
