In Italian, “scena madre” refers to a film’s most important scene. That translation could imply a cinematographic allusion, a theme that runs through choreographer Ambra Senatore’s work. In this instance, however, it might be more accurate to interpret the title more literally, as “mother scene,” a faithful reflection of the piece’s concept. It is based on repeating a short scene that is always the same, yet slightly different every time. Transposed into different places and events, with varying protagonists and possible epilogues, the scene becomes a pretext to muse upon our shared humanity within the framework of our precious diversity.
