Compagnia Artemis Danza

Prova aperta_Il Barbiere di Siviglia

In occasione dei centocinquant’anni dalla morte di Gioachino Rossini, Monica Casadei con la Compagnia Artemis Danza affronta uno dei titoli più celebri del maestro pesarese, Il Barbiere di Siviglia, che la coreografa ha immaginato come un avveniristico “balletto d’azione”. Ma chi è davvero Figaro? Nella lettura di Monica Casadei Figaro è il prototipo dell’uomo di successo nel mondo di oggi. L’eroe rossiniano diventa l’emblema di chi riesce a soddisfare con efficacia, vivacità e savoir faire le aspettative di una società che impone ogni giorno di raggiungere i propri obiettivi ottimizzando tempi ed energie.

Originally from Ferrara, Monica Casadei graduates in philosophy cum laude writing a dissertation on dance in Plato’s system. After a career as a professional acrobatic gymnast, she takes to studying classic and modern dance, at first in Italy, then in London, and eventually in Paris where she gets to meet choreographers Pierre Doussaint and Isabelle Doubouloz and the Master André Cognard Hanshi So shihan, with whom she still practices the martial art of Aikido.

In France, she founds the company Artemis Danza, with which she later moves to Italy, in 1997, giving birth to a fervent production activity that amounts, nowadays, to over 40 original creations.

From 1998 to 2007, the Company is part of an artist residency at Fondazione Teatro Due in Parma whereas, from 2014 up to this day, it partakes in an artist residency at Teatro Comunale in Bologna. Artemis Danza has been invited to the most important Italian theatres and festivals and to several international tours and festivals.

Pivotal elements in Monica Casadei’ s artistic research are the influences from different artistic, cultural and geographic fields and the exploration of urban spaces and places that turn into stages for performances.

Alongside the production activity, Artemis funds, produces and promotes young choreographers and organizes several activities meant to artistically educate the audience.
