21st Cyprus Contemporary Dance - Italy

Within the framework of the Festival, on June 22nd , the Italian performance "Giselle", by Balletto di Roma, will be presented at Rialto Theatre. One hundred and seventy-five years have passed since the première of Giselle, a masterpiece of romantic classical ballet created for the Parisian debut of Italian ballerina Carlotta Grisi.Now, for the first time, Giselle involves an international team of artists and associates, with different artistic identities and original creative approaches, coordinated by Peggy Olislaegers, former artistic director of the Dutch Dance Festival, dramaturg for many companies like Rambert and artists ad such as Alessandro Sciarroni. Richard Van Kruysdijk and Andreas Berger’s profound rearrangement of the music of Adolphe Adam underlies both acts of the ballet, enabling the dancers to generate new rhythmic and gestural evocations, which let each spectator create his or her own story.
