Emanuel Gat and his dancers

Sunday 16 July at 20.00 | CREAZIONE IN SITU

This piece was purposely designed for Orsolina28 and is an extraordinary opportunity to discover Emanuel Gat's work from a variety of perspectives: a series of short choreographic ideas provide the audience with a close-up view of his work within an intimate setting.

Compagnie Wang Remirez

Sunday 9 July at 21.30 | AP15

Ap15 is pure dance in 15 minutes. The artistic power of the choreography pioneered the choreographic lexicon and aesthetics that are hallmarks of this artistic duo; their talent has also enabled them to present their work internationally. AP15 has received several awards, among them the "New York Bessie Award for Outstanding Performance" in 2013. Stage design is irrelevant: a man and a woman interact in a nervous and frenetic pas de deux while music marks the timeline of their relationship. Comparable to electric charges of opposite sign, the two dancers initiate a symbiotic connection within their differences, creating a game of chess in which each one explores his own space in relation to that of the other. In the intermittence between action, recognition and reaction, we witness something akin to the exploration of Love toward Psyche, a dialogue that resembles an elegant match of martial arts. Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto composed the penetrating rhythm of the sound universe.

Pockemon Crew

Sunday 9 July at 20:00 | FREE STYLE, HIP HOP

The evening opens to a lively improvisation created by one of the world's most popular hip hop companies. The group is led by choreographer Fghani Riyadh and is marked by irrepressible energy. It was created in the late 1990s on the square in front of the Opéra de Lyon and it continues to assert itself very successfully at major international contests.

Compagnia Zappalà danza

Wednesday 5 July at 20.00 | LAVA BUBBLES

Site-specific performance from the project "Nella città, la danza" by Roberto Zappalà and Nello Calabrò Roberto Zappalà's creation "Lava Bubbles" is a part of the "Nella Città" project concept, a form of dance that has the aim of making the performance interact with its surrounding territory. What emerges from the performance is the sense of an inextricable relationship between an art form and the location in which it is performed, between the bodies of the dancers and the body of the city and its inhabitants, both spectators and co-performers of the work. The bubbles in the title were evoked in the author while thinking about Mount Etna, bubbles of daily life that flow along, burst and are reborn in the same sort of relationship the audience has with the dance performance, forming the many short-circuits and paradoxes that together make up the portrait of a city.

Les Italiens de l’Opéra de Paris

Sunday 2 July at 21.30

A fierce, talented Little Italy exists within the Opéra de Paris’ temple of Ballet, which issued from the Académie Royale de Danse, founded in 1661 by Sun King. This exclusive performance includes an anthology of solos and pas de deux drawn from the great classical repertoire as well as pieces of contemporary dance. A Gala evening and an opportunity to witness the outstanding artistic importance of Italian dancers who work abroad. The performance's vibrancy issues from the pure elegance of French style combined with an Italian heartbeat, further enhanced by the presence of Marie Agnès Gillot, who has danced with the Opéra de Paris corps de ballet since 1989. The show was supported by Orsolina28 and staged at the Teatro Civico di Moncalvo.

Shantala Shivalingappa company

Sunday 10 July at 19:30 | IMPRO (prima nazionale)

Collaboration between Shantala Shivalingappa and Ferran Savall, the Catalan musician and singer, dates back to the early 2000s. This "concert for a dancer" develops around the rarefied mixture that combines Ferran's music and Shantala’s unique style of dance. The performance is a new concept of improvisation, issued from a dialogue between contemporary music and dance. A game of possibilities that dismisses the parameters of reason, inhibition and self-censorship to make room for instint, intuition and emotion.

Compagnia Sharon Fridman

Wednesday 13 July at 19.30

¿HASTA DÓNDE...?

This duet is based on the contact technique and explores the feelings induced by the lack of love, the sensations one experiences when facing chaos. The piece is supported by effective, melancholic music. Hasta Donde ...? explores the limits of physical manipulation between two bodies and how they can be used to try to break down walls. Followed by

CAÍDA LIBRE (excerpt)

Sharon Fridman shifts her gaze to the concept of survival. While observing a group of people, she asks herself questions about their nature, about how and what drives a community to form, about how collective identity can be undermined by a single rebel; but above all she explores what keeps it together: what leads to the need to provide physical and emotional support to an individual who falls and then rises?
