Made up of 16 solo-performers capable of fully understanding the most diverse styles, the Centro Choreografico Nazionale / Aterballetto has earned wide recognition on the international scene, thanks to the outstanding quality of its performers. Considered the most important contemporary dance company in Italy and the country's main permanent ballet production institution, it presents at dFERIA a triple program dance pieces: Yeled, Shoot Me and Rhapsody in blue.  

Yeled  (2022)

In Yeled, which means "child" in Hebrew, Eyal Dadon reflects on the moment in adult life when we lose the feeling of being a child. At what point do we lose our innocence and why? Perhaps because of a simple phrase we hear, or a bad dream... One of the main keys of the creation are the things we learned in childhood and how those things made us the people we are today. 

Coreography and music: Eyal Dadon. Costume design: Bregje van Balen. Set ald lighting design: Fabiana Piccioli. Production: Fondazione Nazionale della Danza / Aterballetto. Co-production: Fondazione I Teatri di Reggio Emilia

Shoot Me (2022)

Shoot Me is a new creation for the company on the music by the English rock band Spiritualized, formed in 1990, and on some recordings of Jim Morrison declaiming poems about freedom. 

The construction of the work is based on the concept of “concert-ballet” revised in a contemporary way: music and dance are combined to create a piece without a story, but, thanks to the power of music, sometimes aggressive and sometimes poetic, this piece guides us to discover open imaginaries and emotions. A central element of Shoot Me es que las voces individuales del elenco guían la fuerza grupal. s the group strength guided by individual voices, the desire of a body that wishes to be observed and a body that wants to be perceived, that wants to communicate. Shoot Me wants to create a direct dialogue between the dancers on stage and the audience in the auditorium: a game of seduction, of looks, of sweat, an assault on the senses and an ode to the body, to breathing the same air, sweat, tears, fury, pride. 

Coreography: Diego Tortelli. Music: Spiritualized. Costume design: Marco De Vincenzo. Lighting design: Roman Fliegel. Production: Fondazione Nazionale della Danza / Aterballetto. Co-production: Fondazione I Teatri di Reggio Emilia
