Description

Presented in its world premiere in Switzerland at the Lugano Dance Project Festival in 2022, Fables uses a rigorous movement vocabulary reminiscent of dance-theater to present a sometimes harsh, sometimes poetic vision of women’s ongoing struggle. The starting point of Fables was the theme of that festival, centring on Monte Verità, the famous mountain that was the cradle of an idealistic micro-society in the early 1900s. This liberated community, precursor of the hippie counterculture of the 1960s, sparked the choreographer’s desire to examine feminism. Against the backdrop of the chaos of an era turned upside down, Fables projects us into fantastical spaces from which larger-than-life characters emerge — contemporary female archetypes who paved the way to freedom from invisible yet real barriers. A universe of great evocative power, echoing a crying need for utopia, hope and humanity.
