ARTEMIS DANZA /
BUTTERFLY – FORBIDDEN COLOURS
The weight of the wait, naively full of illusions, vis-a-vis the disruption of all hope, creates relentlessly a chasm between reality and what should have been. The gap is so deep and violent that it forces Mme Butterfly to move to the fatal act, the Harakiri: not declared and yet screamed, it is so disruptive and explosive that it can be compared to a silent explosion, to the tragedy of Hiroshima.

THE BARBER OF SEVILLE_ ACTION BALLET
One, ten, a hundred Figaros on stage. Focused, powerful, brave, they make their way through a chameleontic game of unexpected events and sudden changes. A Post-modern Action Ballet, filled with irreverent irony and with the relentless energy of a special team that is willing to do anything, or just about.
Production: Compagnia Artemis Danza in collaboration with AMAT and Comune di Pesaro Co-production: Italian Festival in Thailand, Festival Orizzonti, Armonie d’Arte Festival in collaboration with Rossini Opera Festival and Teatro Comunale di Bologna. Thanks are due to A.N.G.E.L.O. Vintage Palace
DONIZETTI®into a RAVE
Play in three deliriums
Anna Bolena | Pazzi per progetto | Lucia di Lammermoor
What is the boundary between existential angst, madness and sheer delirium? Anna Bolena, Lucia di Lammermoor and I pazzi per progetto make their way through tensions and frenzy, underwater silences and vulcanic bursts, in a dialectic game of mirrors, doubles and couples. An energy wave exploding and imploding.

CARMEN K (kimera)
“She is as wild, passionate, instinctive and sensual, as she is free to love and to exist. She shows the primeval instinct and will to exist, to be profoundly true to oneself, against all subjugations, possessions and prisons. The outcome is almost too predictable: a free and brave being’s life is harsh and choiceless. Either the inner law, the soul law, wins or death is to be preferred”

HEROES_ opera’s solos
Two, five or six dancers performance.
Every performance in the solos of Heroes is the blossoming result of a personal research, not to be repeated, profoundly linked to the dancer’s capabilities and potentialities and to the emotional inputs stemming from the project Corpo d’Opera di Artemis.
THE LOONEYS – Tribute to Fellini
Spacy and dazed characters floating between poetry and fantasy in a surreal world. Fellinian nights hanging in the balance between Circus and the Dolce Vita.
