July 5, h 23.30 | Teatro del Parco
CHIARA FRIGO (Verona)
The ballroom as a container of memory, a place of love and passion experienced or just almost touched, fleeting appearances of partner observed at a distance, hopes and desires. In the charming Parco di Villa Nappi, Chiara Frigo recreates the timeless setting of a ballroom, bringing to mind the world of the milongas and the famous film “Le Bal” by Ettore Scola and enriching it with contemporary elements and references to the world of speed dating. Ballroom is a performative form reproduced in collaboration with young people of the district, both through choral movements and through their individual creative contribution. The audience is witness and participant in the movement of the harmony of the dances.
