In step with dance

Great contemporary dance events continue taking place throughout the region.


stagione danza REIn Reggio Emilia the Ballet de Lorraine (October 20, Teatro Ariosto) will present a program of three shows with different choreography, very representative of contemporary dance in three diverse and emblematic forms: Paulo Ribeiro (White Feeling, Italian premiere), a talented Portuguese choreographer in his prime who has created a dance of fantasy and muscle; Maguy Marin (Duo d'Eden, Italian premiere) with a work on love and the age of innocence of great precision and sobriety; and Merce Cunningham (Fabrication), a great master of contemporary dance, friend and supporter of John Cage.  Three pillars of contemporary dance choreography, with works that represent particular generations, styles and expression.


Stagione danza FE JPGThe program of the Contemporary Dance Festival at the Teatro Comunale in Ferrara will host yet another national premiere with the Compagnie La Baraka / Ballet Contemporain d’Alger of the French-Algerian choreographer Abou Lagraa, who will present, on October 23, Univers…l’Afrique. “A bridge between French culture and Algerian culture which are at the root of my identity" is how this contemporary choreographer with classical training describes his latest work.  A pas de duex for four dancers created for the members of this multi-ethnic company.  A confrontation between different ages and contrasting lifestyles.  Besides the exceptional talent of the dancers, this show is further enriched by the voice of Nina Simone, which will immerse the audience in the universality of the African culture.
