within Ravenna Festival 2017
Dances, Voices, Sounds of the Italian Futurism
The dances of Uccidiamo il chiaro di luna took shape at the Scuola Paolo Grassi in 1997, on the initiative of Marinella Guatterini who asked the choreographer Silvana Barbarini to freely explore the creative world of her teacher, Giannina Cesi, the only Futurist dancer, discovered by founder of the movement Filippo Tommaso Marinetti.
The result is a surprising encounter of gesture, poetry and music, also thanks to the choir director Emanuele De Checchi and the lively and accurate performance of the young dancers of Paolo Grassi.
