project realized with the support ofMiBACT e di SIAE, in the frame of the program “Per Chi Crea”
First step of the caravan of The Carnival of the Animals, project of theatre and dance for children and adults that will move to the Sicilian and national territory with its playful universe of colors and animals with the support of MiBACT and SIAE within the program “Per Who Creates ”
A double appointment awaits children and families. On Saturday 12th October the little ones (from 5-10 years) will be involved in a free workshop* dedicated to the discovery of the music of Charles Camille Saint-Saens. The game and the creative paths of theater and dance will become the tool to make children reflect on contemporary society, making them explore atmospheres and themes presented by the animals that are the protagonists of the musical suites.

Sunday, October 13 will be the turn of “The Carnival of the animals“, a show aimed at children and families that through the simplicity of the language of a fairy tale, explores the vices and virtues of men. The characters and contradictions of human nature will be metaphorically associated with the different types of animals that inspired the composer’s suites. The choreographic research is based on the timbre-rhythmic adherence between the movement and the characteristics of the music and the characters with their stories. Aiming not at mimesis, but at deep analogies, body language tries to evoke images and suggestions of which musical notes and the story are impregnated. Immersed in atmospheres now dense and now suspended, bouncing between the multiple chromatic nuances of human feelings, the viewer will be led to make an emotional-reflective journey in a real dimension bordering on the imaginary.
“Playing you learn” is the philosophy behind the project that will be directed by the actor / director Ivano La Rosa and the dancer / choreographer Ilenia Romano.
