Music Madama Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini

Music Il Barbiere di Siviglia by Gioachino Rossini

Musical elaboration and original music Luca Vianini
Production Compagnia Artemis Danza

Figaro, Rossini’s iconic character who in Monica Casadei’s vision encapsulates the vices and virtues of the successful man in today’s world, is the absolute protagonist of a performance inspired by the opera of the same name. Rossini’s hero becomes the emblem of those who manage to meet with efficiency, vivacity and savoir faire the expectations of a society that demands every day to achieve its goals by optimising time and energy.

Event organised within the framework of the European Year of Cultural Heritage
in collaboration with the Complesso Monumentale della Pilotta as part of the celebrations for the 400th anniversary of the Teatro Farnese, with the patronage of the Municipality of Parma.

A woman, a destiny, a tormented history at the Farnese court. A body, a soul, the struggle of contrasts. From the elaboration of these essential elements takes shape Lucenia, a creation by Monica Casadei realised in collaboration with the Complesso Monumentale della Pilotta as part of the celebrations for the 400th anniversary of the Farnese Theatre, under the patronage of the Municipality of Parma.

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.
