2024 – PREMIERE July 15th Bolzano Danza

HIT is a choreographic and musical project about jumping rope used as a percussive element to manifest embodied rhythms.

After a year of athletic training supported by the Italian jumpers’ community and sponsored by MarcRope – Make your cardio an art (Milan), Parini Secondo and Bienoise focus on the sound that the skipped rope produces, dissecting its timbral possibilities. The female jumpers on stage perform a rhythmic and at the same time choreographic score in which single-under, side-swing and double-under are both athletic and musical elements: combined with voice and synthetic sounds, they harmonise into a true HIT.

There’s a reason why you came here
Every second getting far and far
Failure brings a new perspective
To renew the meaning of your past

High hopes and higher mind
To read a world that’s blind

There’s no reason baby I won’t lie
There’s no reason to give up the fight
