SPECIAL THREE PRODUCTION CENTERS
Fondazione Nazionale della Danza/Aterballetto – Dancehauspiù – Compagnia Zappalà Danza
An evening that highlights the distinctive figures of three Italian Dance Production Centers.
Fondazione Nazionale della Danza / Aterballetto opens the evening with “O”: Philippe Kratz and Ivana Mastroviti move towards the infinite rhythm of their unstoppable hearts in a choreography recently entered into the company’s repertoire, but already applauded in many theatres.
DanceHaus Company / DanceHauspiù will present the piece I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud by the choreographer Matteo Bittante: the verses of the English poet Wordsworth are the background to the bucolic and rotten ritual of the three dancers in which the vital force and the idyllic quiet of nature they are opposed to the disturbances and confusion of the city.
Closure of the evening with Scenario Pubblico / Compagnia Zappalà Danza with the national premiere of x3, the second step of the new project by Roberto Zappalà dedicated to the great composer Johann Sebastian Bach, which will be articulated into several steps and which will première in the final version in 2020
PHILIPPE KRATZ [DE]
The idea behind “O” is eternity and how to achieve it as the ultimate goal of humanity. Like in the summer of 2017 in Hong Kong, when for the first time two humanoid robots interacted with each other: at that moment it became clear to everyone that a future, in which human knowledge is transmitted by communicating with material inorganic, is at hand. “O” can be seen as two human beings or two robots that celebrate in a state of transcendence and emotional fulfillment, the infinite movement and rhythm of their unstoppable hearts. Like the spaceship computer Hal in the Stanley Kubrick movie “2001: A Space Odyssey” says: “I know I made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will return to normal. I still have maximum enthusiasm and confidence in the mission. And I want to help you. ”

MATTEO BITTANTE [EN]
I WANDERED LONELY AS A CLOUD
I lived my childhood on a hill, in the middle of nature, running from one meadow to another and climbing on trees, in constant contact almost symbiotic with her. Since ancient times, the countryside and rural life have been a source of inspiration for many artists. An idyllic and escapist place, a refuge from the shops of life, a time for the exploration of the self. A landscape of the soul to defend and protect the ideologies of an age that contaminates and desertifies the Mother Earth. (Matteo Bittante)
Direction and choreography: Matteo Bittante | dancers: Alice Carrino, Cristian Cucco and Giovanni Leone | production: DANCEHAUSpiù
ROBERTO ZAPPALÀ [IT]
Compagnia Zappalà Danza
The artistic act of love that Roberto Zappalà wants to dedicate to the great composer Johann Sebastian begins with these short episodes . No type of dramaturgy, no kind of intellectual reasoning, only a close relationship between music and dance. On the other hand, Zappalà has taken the thought of Charles Baudelaire: “Glorifying the cult of image and aesthetics is my goal even before the meaning”.
The creation represents one of the phases of a journey articulated in three different moments / episodes: x2, x4, which are also the respective numbers of dancers on stage, while, the third episode will be a creation for the whole Company and will see its debut in the autumn of 2020. The music that will be used for the x4 episode is extracted from the version performed by Ramin Bahrami, a great classical pianist, and Danilo Rea, an equally talented jazz pianist, on the record Bach is in the air. The final project, on the other hand, will take inspiration from the different versions that have been made and “redone” over time.
