Eight-footed Mole is an ongoing interdisciplinary research conducted by Eva Grieco and Alessandro Ciccarelli about dance, sound design, video, photography, poetry, painting and live installations.

The depth of the mind, the unconscious, the internal areas of the wilderness. The body into the mind, both are wild. Thoreau writes ”give me a wildness whose glance no civilization can endure — as if we lived on the marrow of koodoos devoured raw”.

Starting from these premises, and through the expressive practices of dance and photography, Eva Grieco and Alessandro Ciccarelli research the boundaries of the physical and mental ecosystem of the wild by exploring fallow environments, interstitial spaces that can inscribe new paradigms of movement and observation in the bodies. They approach the work by dipping themselves into environments that possess critical issues concerning the morphological, visual and climatic traits: a misty forest, an unmarked path at night through the woods, a dark and damp underground quarry or floating in mid-air.

The dancer deals with the landscapes through the research of actions that emerge from the very attempt to inhabit or to go across those spaces which seem to be out of control for man and more suited to beasts. The digital eye does not guard, but explores the other/else. The camera becomes an essential tool to decode those primal connections between oneself and the habitat which are overwritten by social conventions.

The tension between Grieco and Ciccarelli generates performative sessions with no audience, in a field of investigation whose initial purpose is the experience itself. The evidence of those sessions mark a rough, fallow and hybrid path, between dance and image, between action and stasis, between actor and observer, in the fleeting boundary between inside and outside.
