Aterballetto dances Storie in Russi, near Ravenna.

Storie is a small anthology of danced fragments. They are only an infinitesimal part of the very rich artistic and human universe of the two choreographers Diego Tortelli and Philippe Kratz.

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.
