“Exciting BLISS by Johan Inger. It is an ode to the joy of dancing, to the pleasure of seeing the performers moving in an unstoppable chain of choreographic beauty. One of the best shots recently scored by Aterballetto.”

Sergio Trombetta, La Stampa

Premio Danza&Danza 2016 “Best Italian Production”

“The starting point of this new piece is the music of Keith Jarrett’s Köln Concert, which, apart from myself also inspired and touched millions of people due to its maybe perfect timing of catching a generation moving from one part of their lives to another.

My task, together with the dancers, will be how we relate to this iconic music. There is both a composing and an emotional challenge as to how we meet this music with today’s eyes.

I have today been asked to present a thought about what my new work will be about, but the truth of the piece will have to be discovered through my meeting with the dancers, and us together, meeting the music of the Köln Concert.

So we are, all of us, no matter how experienced, newcomers related both to each other and to the music that will give a voice to this new meeting.”
