Médée Kali

Teatro Libero Palermo / Directed by Beno Mazzone

Written by Laurent Gaudé
Translation and direction: Beno Mazzone
Music: Antonio Guida
Lights: Fiorenza Dado

read all

Medea killed her children. Time has passed, but the idea that her children lie on Greek land is unbearable. She returns to her children’s tomb to take them away, and to complete her revenge. She realises then that she is being followed by a man she doesn't know. She is careful to never get too close to him, but he follows her doggedly. She enjoys his presence. She speaks to him. Will this stranger become her next lover or the fiercest of her enemies? She feels that he will soon be in her good graces, as he is handsome and because Medea has never been able to resist the beauty of men. Written in 2003, Medea becomes, in Gaudé’s writing, the goddess of death, dance and love, and  renamed Medea Kali, with Indian origin, and backdrop of a new people.

TE’ or 手 means "hand" in Japanese. 5 diatonic accordions, 5 masters.
Unchallenged masters of the instrument, 10 dancing hands on the keyboards, a blend of musical techniques, featuring different cultures, 5 decades of supporting each other, lives that are told.

These musicians are like the fingers of a hand, different, complementary, accomplices, all essential.

These ten hands, for about the same duration as a CD, take you to all the corners of Europe with harmony and complicity, anger and tenderness, both past and present, but always with great musicality.

The name "Samurai" for this group is no accident, nor the 'TE' or 手 as the title of the album.
It’s a glimpse of ancestral Japan, of our collective imagination.

Autour du masque

Directed by Pierre Byland

Residence at Teatro San Materno

read all

Mankind, in order to survive, has used a ruse: transforming itself to appear stronger, smarter, better looking...and invented the mask. Such an opportunity for theatre!

The actor is transformed thanks to the mask. And when were not in agreement with the mask, they invent the counter-mask.
What an extraordinary means to be able to go beyond the realism of everyday life! To invent a style of play which can come close to the tragic, the farcical, the abstract, the surreal.

A residence at Teatro San Materno and a workshop held by Pierre Byland, culminating in a performance in the outdoor area of the theatre.

Explorations in Bauhaus spaces

in collaboration with the Lausanne company Junior Marchepied

Residence at Teatro San Materno

read all

Young dancers of the Junior Marchepied company will work for two weeks with choreographer Tiziana Arnaboldi at the Teatro San Materno, built in 1928 by architect Carl Weidemeyer. Together they will explore Bauhaus architecture, its interior and exterior spaces, some 100 years since the birth of the artistic movement.
The dancers are training to become aware of how, in each specific space of the theatre, the great inventiveness of the Bauhaus movement can be perceived. Each place acquires a multifunctional character, the spaces becoming a real hothouse of creativity.

The public is invited on Saturday 29 June to experience the various spaces, both from a physical and an emotional point of view, in which reality and imagination go hand in hand. This will be a danced itinerary, aiming to enlighten the gaze of both actors and visitors alike.

Company Junior Marchepied was founded by dancers and choreographers Corinne and Nicholas Pettit Rochet and is based in Lausanne. For nine months, dancers who have just finished their training and are looking for their first job in the professional world of dance have the opportunity to come together to continue working on a daily basis with international choreographers.

Residence at Teatro San Materno

Searching for a free dance, everyone with their own human nature.
From earth to light, from dusk to dawn, giving rise to actions, memories and emotions, as the driving force within a Bauhaus atmosphere.

Tiziana Arnaboldi
Director of the company bearing the same name, she is the author of some forty artistic creations which have received wonderful responses from audiences and critics in festivals held in major cities in Europe and Africa. From October 2009, the company Tiziana Arnaboldi has had its residence at Teatro San Materno in Ascona – being entrusted with its management since 2015 – where it creates platforms for international projects inspired by the place itself. From 2014 it opened a space dedicated to research and dialogue between dance and other artistic languages. It creates platforms for international projects and art events inspired by the space, rich in art and history. From 2015, international artists of different fields have come together with the dancers from Compagnia Tiziana Arnaboldi, for residences at Teatro San Materno, giving birth to unique performances under the name: "Dialogue between the arts." These shows are also hosted in other places and spaces in search of new artistic versatility.
