the first European festival on creativity

2013 Program

EVENT #36

Virgilio Sieni

Before other people’s eyes

 

The choreographer and dancer Virgilio Sieni has designed this performance to invite the audience to reflect on the Resistance. The dancer meets some former freedom fighters a few minutes before going on stage, and together they conduct a dance structured as a “game of touch”. The dance is meant as a recollection of their life experiences in the painful struggle for freedom, as well as to the beauty and dignity of bodily gestures. With Naomi Berrill (cello). A production of Compagnia Virgilio Sieni, Théâtre du Merlan scène nationale à Marseille.
