Crises, a title borrowed from the 1960 famous creation by Merce Cunningham, brings to the stage musical work by composers who are among the most innovative and experimental in the musical avant-guard scene, like Francesco Filidei and Simon Steen-Andersen, as well as protagonists from historical and contemporary periods and amongst the most contradictory and revolutionary of the history of modern music and of our days, such as Helmut Lachenmann and Sylvano Bussotti.
A project that intends to go beyond the limits of a traditional concert or of a theatrical performance, by allowing music, dance and visual arts to intermingle, to switch roles, to merge the boundaries that separate them and that makes them feel like a stand-alone entity. The nature of avant-guard music, which is often theatrical and gestural in Crises becomes a precious unifier for joint reflection. Therefore, a free-spirited production is born, a show that is created through three different performative languages: post- ballet, dance, music, and theater. This mix of contemporary art uses a vocabulary that gives us the possibly to see ahead of our time.
