Ella Rothschild | Ballet Theatre of Tourin

Choreography: Ella Rothschild | with the dancers of the Balletto Teatro di Torino | lighting design: Yoav Barel | costumes: Walter&Hamlet | assistant: Lorenzo Ferrarotto.

Timeline tells of the similarities and differences in behaviour between human beings, in relation to social conventions, and how these are perceived in different cultures. Ella Rothschild dwells on the most challenging moments people come across in the course of their lives and makes the line between what is right and what is wrong ever thinner. In her creative process, the choreographer composes with the dancers a collage of images that explore situations that alternate in each community: competitiveness, grief, curiosity, emulation, mourning, despair, sadness, anxiety, fear, madness, joy. Using abstract movement and theatrical gesture, Ella creates a language that explores the group’s personalities and relationships, succeeding in creating one big world, both wonderful and dark, that is redeemed by great self-irony.
