A contemporary rewriting of the ballet “La Sylphide” (1832) passing through Fokine’s “Les Sylphides” (1909). With Sylphidarium young Francesca Pennini and the CollettivO CineticO, start a fight between air and earth, natural and supernatural, matter and transparency of the flesh, silence of the nails and weight of the heels in a vertical overturn that inverts times and postures. It’s an entomological gaze towards the anatomy of ballet, a perspective on the deepest pulsions of the body. Chopin’s music dialogues with the original score of Francesco Antonioni, in a percussive and rhythmic repartee played live. The show is part of VIE Festival 2016 programme.
