Piemonte – New York A/R
The smile of Lorenzo bewitches you at first sight. When you see him dancing then, the spell is cast even deeper. His personal story is made out of talent, dedication, chance and grit. Lorenzo was born in Torino and beginned studying dance in Matilde Demarchi’s Arké. She watched him, followed him and showed him the way: the contemporary dance and specifically the Graham technique. Nowadays Lorenzo Pagano is Soloist at the Martha Graham Company in New York City. For our sake Lorenzo sticks to his roots and came back to teach at Orsolina28 where he held an exclusive weekly workshop intermediate and advanced level in Graham technique.
It has been amazing!

The art of Shantala Shivalingappa
Shantala is the kind of artist whose enchantment is overwhelming. Her name in Indian means “heral of peace” and this does her art do: fascinate and pacify the spirit. Orsolina28 has been honoured not only to host Shantala Shivalingappa’s masterclass but to be the first to stage in Italy the last performance of the stunning dancer accompanied by the Catalan musician Ferran Savall. “Impro” is “a concert for a dancer” that goes beyond the mere improvisation and becomes pure instinct, intuition and emotion.
