W2! (Women Too!)
W2! (Women Too!) is a new work created and choreographed by Manuel Vignoulle, which explores the evolution of the male/female dynamic in history from a contemporary man`s point of view. Through experiences of women from different periods and cultures, the audience will witness the transformation of women's status over time and how this has influenced men`s behavior. Vignoulle also explores the corresponding changes in gender roles and how the boundaries between sexual identities have become more fluid.
InnerAction is a voyage of consciousness and an exploration of relationships without emotional barriers. How truthful can we become in moments when we relax our emotional defenses? To enhance the capacity to feel the moment, performers and the audience are invited to focus their attention on suggestive images, in the form of short video clips which will be projected randomly.
Just Joy is a collaboration with the artists celebrating the stages of life. It aims to show how even in times of difficulties and sorrow, dance will always bring passion and joy. The original music is by the American composer Thomas Lentakis and music by Elena Ledda ('Amargura' & 'Sa Lughe').
Amore Impossibile is a new dance-theater production choreographed by the innovative Italian choreographer Kristian Cellini. The inspiration and atmosphere come from the romance 'The Lady of the Camellias,' revised in a contemporary version. Cellini's work highlights the sentimental and passionate aspects of the eternal love between the main characters, with the help of a narrator and the original music by Thomas Lentakis. The expressive peak in the choreography will be emphasized by the music of Frederic Chopin.
