Description

This year your summer evenings will resonate with art and rhythm in both August and September!

The event that brings the best of national and international contemporary dance to Bergamo every year is back. The Summer Dance Festival 2020 includes a special edition full of novelties, inaugurated with performances by the Bermudas, Perpendicolareand Graces– a vibrant preview which is also part of the "Lazzaretto on Stage" initiative promoted by the Municipality of Bergamo. 

The festival’s program will have an eye not only for new generations, as usual, but also for the role of the artistic show as a precious opportunity to get back in touch with your emotions, with the positive energies of the world and especially with others, looking for a safe sharing space. An edition to be experienced and felt. You can't miss it!

2020 program:

  • 2ndAugust – A peso morto

by C&C Company, with Carlo Massari

9.30pm | Carmine Cloister – Upper Bergamo

A journey into contemporary pietas, through the physicality of bodies ready to collapse that alternate long static moments with sudden slumping; a symbolic investigation into social changes and dynamics.

Following:Harleking

By and with Ginevra Panzetti and Enrico Ticconi

Dance performance that, through gestures, is reminiscent of the “grotesques”, the ancient wall decorations, in which monstrous figures emerge and mingle with elegant ornamental volutes. A hypnotic language, often extreme, in continuous metamorphosis and nebulous.

  • 5th– 6thAugust – Save the last dance for me

by Alessandro Sciarroni, with Gianmaria Borzillo and Giovanfrancesco Giannini

Wednesday 5that 6:30pm | 8:30pm - Thursday 6thAugust at 7pm | 9pm

9.30pm | Lazzaretto, Bergamo

Show suitable for the whole family. Free entry.

  • 6thSeptember – DI_(S)TANZE

by Giselda Ranieri and Lello Cassinotti

6pm and 9pm | Carmine Cloister – Upper Bergamo

The show was born from the desire to meet and compare the voice of performer and vocal experimenter Antonello Cassinotti and the body of dancer and choreographer Giselda Ranieri. A work between instant composition and body-vocalic improvisation to explore the boundaries of two, in a duo.

World premiere, in collaboration with TTB – Teatro Tascabile di Bergamo - #TuoCarmine

Following: Elegia

by Compagnia Zerogrammi, with Amina Amici, Lucrezia Maimone, Simone Zambelli, Damien Camunez, Manuel Martin, Miriam Cinieri, Gabriel Beddoes and Alessio Rundeddu.

Elegiaexplores the separation of the human being from one's roots and identity with the consequent sense of geographical-moral exile, told through a dance that is dizziness and abandonment, but also hope of redemption for those who have nothing more to lose. Inspired by the novel The Poor by the Portuguese Raul Brandão.

In collaboration with TTB - Teatro Tascabile di Bergamo - #TuoCarmine

  • 13th September – Ksama

by and with Daniele Salvitto

6pm| Carmine Cloister – Bergamo

Kshama (in Sanskrit "act of patience, temperance, tolerance and partly forgiveness") is presented as a way to combat the negativities of life and find the strength to face challenges, getting out of the vicious circle of needs, frustrations and impatience somewhat typical of the contemporary world.

In collaboration with TTB - Teatro Tascabile di Bergamo - #TuoCarmine

Following: Golden Variations

by Camilla Monga and Filippo Vignato, with Camilla Monga and Pieradolfo Ciulli

In tribute to Bach's historic Goldberg Variations created by Glenn Gould, dancer and trombonist, trace a similarity between the Goldberg Variations and the compositional process of the duet: a journey in which the viewer will pass through atmospheres that evoke the polyphony of Sardinian ancestral songs, futurist heritage and concrete music, blues, music-hall motifs and elegant rhapsodies with blue notes.
