jessica and me | moving with pina | a fury tale |
All dates of this show:
|Dancer and actress of irresistible talent and comic vitality, Cristiana Morganti merges the fury of a Mediterranean virago with the wide-eyed innocence of a clown.
In this performance, she sets herself to play with the theatrical concept of “Inside” and
“Outside”, at times losing herself in the sheer whirlwind of movement, and at times stepping out of the spectacle to observe herself with fierce and unrelenting humor.
The challenge is to recreate, along the axis of this moving and poetic confession, the thread of memory, starting from her complex relationship with her classical dance education, and winding up with the fateful meeting with Pina Baush. All this in a mixture of video punctuations, costumes reminiscent of the world of traditional ballet, and musical pieces which interweave high and low culture, classic and pop.
This is an irreverent fairytale of Cristiana through the Looking-glass.
