Dance, Alessandra Ferri returns to La Scala with Stravinskij

-

After the success of Woolf Works in 2019, freely inspired by Virginia Woolf, Alessandra Ferri and Wayne McGregor return to the Teatro alla Scala with AfteRite, the creation freely inspired by Stravinsky’s ‘Spring Festival’, which sees the great international étoile as the protagonist. The first part of a diptych that also includes Lore, a reinterpretation of another masterpiece by the Russian composer, ‘Les noces’, which makes its world premiere at La Scala, signed for the dancers of the Scala company. Originally inspired by Rachel Carson’s seminal book Silent Spring on the impact of man-made pesticides on nature, AfteRite is set in an arid alien landscape that evokes the extreme climate of Chile’s Atacama Desert, where a colony of humans struggles for food and survival against an inexorable nature. In McGregor’s modern retelling, Stravinsky’s story of ritual sacrifice is revisited from the point of view of the Mother, who must choose what she holds most dear and what she is willing to lose. A collection of fragments from traditional Slavic wedding rituals, Stravinsky’s Les noces were composed ten years after his modernist masterpiece La Sagra. In Lore, the title refers to a collective body of knowledge, folk traditions and stories, McGregor explores the difficult marriage of human beings with nature and technology through a prism of fragmented rituals that intertwine between times and traditions. Customs are broken, intertwined and reborn as one generation gives way to another, the sacred is continually reconstituted. We discard and remember. AfteRite, for thirteen dancers, will see on June 24, first in Italian, then on June 29, July 6 and 7, alongside Alessandra Ferri, Marco Agostino, Martina Arduino, Caterina Bianchi, Nicola Del Freo, Christian Fagetti, Maria Celeste Losa, Valerio Lunadei, Mattia Semperboni, Gioacchino Starace, Virna Toppi, Navrin Turnbull, Rinaldo Venuti. In the performances of 28 June, 1 and 4 July Frank Aduca, Antonella Albano, Gaia Andreanò, Timofej Andrijashenko, Emanuele Cazzato, Claudio Coviello, Agnese Di Clemente, Domenico Di Cristo, Eugenio Lepera, Nicoletta Manni, Francesco Mascia, Saïd Ramos Ponce, Alessandra Vassallo.’Lore ‘was created, instead, for a team of six women, six men and six main artists. At the world premiere on 24 June, then in the performances on 29 June, 6 and 7 July, Timofej Andrijashenko, Claudio Coviello, Agnese Di Clemente, Domenico Di Cristo, Nicoletta Manni, Alice Mariani will dance. In the performances of June 28, July 1 and 4 there will be the debut of Marco Agostino, Caterina Bianchi, Maria Celeste Losa, Andrea Risso, Virna Toppi, Navrin Turnbull.
