The Dafne with 6 dances by Lorenzo Allegri
World prémiere, 25-29 June 2018
First representation in modern times, 9 February 1611
“A group of six dancers cleverly and never superfluously choreographed by Silvia Giordano reinforce the actor’s part and animate Allegri’s dances using well the unusual environment, with a direction worthy of being defined as such “.
“The choreographer Silvia Giordano creates timeless and abstract paintings that speak of falling in love and seduction, of marriages, of conjugal love, up to domestic violence, symbolizing the rebellion of Daphne who escapes at all costs the insistent courtship of Apollo”.
