Programme A & B
CollettivO CineticO / Christos Papadopoulos - Leon & the Wolf
Sunday 24 April, 2016 | 7pm–8:30pm
10 Miniballetti draws on choreographer Francesca Pennini’s childhood notebook of dances - imagined, but never staged. A fan, a pile of feathers, a drone and lashings of black body paint assist in creating striking, beautiful, outlandish images. Pennini bounces between finely executed gymnastics and virtuosic improvisations, creating a world that floats between past and present - and between writing and interpretation.
Concept, choreography, dance: Francesca Pennini

Le Vie dei Festival
Elvedon flows forwards driven by precise rhythm and slinky, shifting movement patterns. A wrinkled harmony is created by the six dancers as their vibrating bounces and subtle micro-movements build into a solid, but fluid whole image. Inspired by Virginia’s Woolf’s The Waves, Elvedon distils the intertwined narratives of the book into an essential meditation on the passing of time.
