Aterballetto dances Storie in Russi, near Ravenna.
Tortelli creates two pieces: Preludio, opening the bill, is a love letter to the body for five dancers on Nick Cave music, Another story is a duo about the impossible gesture of 2020, the hug.
Between past and future the two creations by Kratz. The duo “O” offers us two human bodies / robots that force us to question ourselves on how the sense of physical contact might change: will it remain emotional and heartfelt, or will it become serial and alienated?
Alpha Grace, a creation for six dancers at the end of the bill, is a reflection on empathy, a form of gentle communication among people who feel on the same level. It too is severely stretched by the present times.
