Beyond Dance Week

FND/ATERBALLETTO is the first and one and only NATIONAL CHOREOGRAPHIC CENTRE (NCC) in Italy.

Through dance, we transform the canons of beauty and creativity to connect different areas of society and culture: the body is an instrument of storytelling, which naturally dialogues with the visual arts, music and technology.

We open ourselves to dialogue because we want to contribute to an open and dynamic vision of performance. This is why FND/Aterballetto is the Italian National Choreographic Centre.

Let’s explore together with the city and our audience: November is the month of discovery!
