TURNING_Orlando’s version is a creation by Alessandro Sciarroni in which he explores the practice of classical dance and in particular the dance on pointe shoes. Together with the choreographer in collaboration with Elena Giannotti, the research was carried out with a group of five dancers (Maria Cargnelli, Francesco Saverio Cavaliere, Lucrezia Gabrieli, Sofia Magnani, Roberta Racis) and the musical composition was created by Aurora Bauza and Pere Jou (Telemann Rec.).

Orlando refers to a round cyclicity, to a circular transformation; as in Virginia Woolf’s novel, it invites us to cross a mystery: does it evoke the name of a person or a place full of palm trees in Florida suspended in expectation of a cyclone?

TURNING_Orlando’s version is a new chapter of a larger project (TURNING) inspired by the migration flows of some animals that at the end of their life return to spawn and die in their natal territory, where the verb “turning” is translated and represented on stage in a literal sense, through the action of the body rotating around its axis: the action develops into an emotional psycho-physical journey, a dance of duration, in the same way in which “turning” also means to evolve, to change.

In this piece, there’s a deep link with the wild animal life, with the mysterious and inevitable power of animals and their transhumance processes, as vibrant as silhouettes on the horizon.
