Dancers at the barre and staff at their desks. The Fonderia is back in full swing for the 2021/22 season.
The Aterballetto company for the entire month of September is working with the Israeli choreographer Eyal Dadon for the new production that will debut in April 2022, together with the new creation by Diego Tortelli.
We are also getting ready for the premiere of MicroDanze, a public art project in partnership with Les Halles de Schaerbeek in Brussels and the Greek National Opera in Athens, co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, which will be on 9 and 10 October in Athens, and the German premiere of Don Juan by Johan Inger, in Ludwigsburg on 16 and 17 October.
In September there are two appointments in which the Fondazione Nazionale della Danza / Aterballetto is the protagonist: in Ferrara from 10 to 12, in Rovereto on 12.
We open our season at Contemporary Dance Festival of Teatro Comunale in Ferrara in the framework of the Interno Verde Festival, where the secret gardens in town become open-air theatres.
