Ap15 is pure dance in 15 minutes. The artistic power of the choreography pioneered the choreographic lexicon and aesthetics that are hallmarks of this artistic duo; their talent has also enabled them to present their work internationally.

AP15 has received several awards, among them the "New York Bessie Award for Outstanding Performance" in 2013. Stage design is irrelevant: a man and a woman interact in a nervous and frenetic pas de deux while music marks the timeline of their relationship. Comparable to electric charges of opposite sign, the two dancers initiate a symbiotic connection within their differences, creating a game of chess in which each one explores his own space in relation to that of the other. In the intermittence between action, recognition and reaction, we witness something akin to the exploration of Love toward Psyche, a dialogue that resembles an elegant match of martial arts. Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto composed the penetrating rhythm of the sound universe.

The event is part of the 2017 Vignale Monferrato Festival
