10-11 March. Mauro Bignozetti choreography Mediterranea is as actual today as when it was first performed 25 years ago and is one of the most significant of his works.
This is a revised version by Daniele Cipriani Entertainment. It was originally performed by the Balletto di Toscana in 1993, then was reworked for La Scala's ballet company. But the theme remains the same and evokes the richness of the cultures and music of the communities around the Mediterranean, their differences and their common roots.
Two male dancers – one who symbolises the sea, the other the land – meet and part, clash and reunite in a constant flow of movement. It is part of the Festival Internazionale della Danza 2018 in collaboration with the Accademia Filarmonica. Teatro Olimpico, Piazza Gentile da Fabriano 17, www.teatroolimpico.it.
