Gabbatha indicates the usual place where Pilate had his judicial seat. Indicates the place where the "wash hands" took place. Gabbatha represents the place where humankind has decided to "not make a choice", has decided not to take a responsibility, where humanity has decided to turn its head.
Experimentation and research, the key elements to choreographer Enzo Celli’s work, power his unconditional love for contemporary dance and theatre.
