“Peggy Untitled” - Dedicated to Peggy Guggenheim
Company Tocnadanza Venezia
Choreography: Michela Barasciutti
A production by Ravello Festival - Campania Region Compagnia Tocnadanza with Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and Veneziaindanza Festival
70th anniversary of the exhibition of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection at the 24th Venice Biennale
On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the exhibition of the Peggy Guggenheim collection at the 24th Venice Biennale, the choreographer Michela Barasciuti, with her Tocnadanza Company, debuts at the Ravello Festival creating a show dedicated to this emblematic figure of modern art 900.
From Picasso to Magritte, from Luigi Nono to Alexander Wustin, between music and paintings, Peggy Guggenheim accompanies us.
For this creation, in fact, the choreographer was inspired by the works exhibited in his Venetian house-museum.
So, floating with the mind in this city of water that has become the home of Peggy, between the paintings and rooms of Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, we are invaded by images and visions, on her life and on modern art.
We discover ourselves on a journey in the '900 and, through the figure of one of the protagonists of this century, we enter the poetics of artists who have marked the turning point in the birth of a contemporary present.

“Il Barbiere di Siviglia"
Company Artemis Danza
Choreography: Monica Casadei
150th anniversary of the death of Gioacchino Rossini
For the 150th anniversary of Gioachino Rossini's death, Monica Casadei with the Artemis Danza Company faces one of the most famous titles of the Pesaro-based master, "Il Barbiere di Siviglia", with a choreographic interpretation that debuted in Pesaro, in the historic Rossini Theater.
A show that Monica Casadei has imagined as a futuristic "action ballet" and that, as usual, involves in a contamination of languages the whole creative body of Artemis, which is enhanced by the costumes created by the visual artist Daniela Usai and musical elaborations of the composer Luca Vianini, who is confronted with Rossini.
