“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.
