Restless and sentimental, as defined by critics of Petr Il’ic Tchaikovsky. This is how the dancers of DanzAmì will try to tell it on Saturday, May 27, 2023, starting at 8:00 p.m., on the stage of the Teatro Augusteo in Salerno, Directed by Roberta Dipino and Ketty Lanzara, without forgetting that fabulous and fantastic world that for the Russian musician, considered one of the fathers of ballet from a musical point of view, was a true escape. A classic parenthesis that draws heavily from “Sleeping Beauty” (1888-89), taken from Charles Perrault’s fairy tale, and which, like “The Nutcracker” (1891-92), was born from the collaboration with the choreographer Marius Petipa , and even “Swan Lake” that brings to the scene the moving lyricism of one of the most prolific musicians of the 19th century and that still makes us dream and excite today. “This year, more than choosing a theme or a ballet, we wanted to study the author, enter his world “on tiptoe” – writes Professor Roberta Dipino in the presentation notes – We did it by working on the three ballets that have been capable of transforming classical dance and that continue to maintain their beauty based on essential lines and an intimate sweetness intact over time”.
There are four graduates who will step on the tables of what is the most anticipated moment after years of study and sacrifices, the farewell pass: Maria Cantillo, Eleonora Merola, Emma Paola Romano and Rosanna Vasaturo. For both ballets there will be students from the lower and higher courses of classical dance and the extraordinary participation of the dancers Luigi Pagano and Francesco Minichino.
Roberta Dipino, Ketty Lanzara and simon centanni They also signed the choreography of “Alice in Wonderland” that will stage the lower courses of modern dance, contemporary dance and hip hop. When rereading, even through dance, what seems to be a children’s fairy tale, themes close to the adult world emerge and Alice’s adventures become a metaphor for something else.
The second part of the show will be dedicated to modern and contemporary dance with choreography by Ketty Lanzara and Antonello Apicella. There are two paintings in the lineup. “Riddles” de Apicella with the participation of advanced contemporary dance courses: sharing a secret can be a complex and delicate matter that requires careful consideration and trust. Secrets are often deeply personal and can have significant consequences if revealed to the wrong person or at the wrong time. And then There is “Black and White” by Ketty Lanzara with the participation of modern and contemporary dance courses. In this choreography, black and white acquires an artistic meaning that becomes a game and a rule like in the square of a chessboard where kings, queens, bishops, knights, rooks and pawns follow even unpredictable paths; that become a recognizable sign of that cinema first imagined and then invented by the Lumière brothers; that are transformed into sound in the elegant flow of the 88 keys of a piano. Then there are the optical illusions, central to Op Art born at a time when the world was looking for different stimuli. Ours is the time where everything must be hyperreal. Perhaps, however, we need to rediscover a dreamlike dimension of the imagination.
