Don Juan

Aterballetto opens the artistic season of Théâtre de Chaillot in Paris, important reference point of contemporary dance in Europe and more.

From 14 to 18 October for 6 times the company dances Don Juan, the new full-length production conceived by Johan Inger.

The choreography is born from Inger’s desire to “face” Don Juan/Don Giovanni, an ancient and still contemporary, truly paradigmatic myth. Some of the works that inspired the choreographer are Tirso de Molina’s original comedy and the plays by Molière, Bertold Brecht and Suzanne Lilar. Inger, together with the playwright Gregor Acuña-Pohl, thoroughly read twenty-five different texts inspired by Don Juan.

This Don Juan features all the characters of the story, from Doña Elvira to Doña Ana to Zerlina and Masetto. The Don Juan is a Kammerspiel, where the dance is a magnifying glass for each of the characters revealing in a refined and clear way the inner world of men and women on stage

The tournée is supported by Regione Emilia-Romagna and Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Parigi.
